This collection of poems is about optimism. For example, America is optimistic in spite of September 11, 2001, as discussed in "America, America Be Our Battle Cry." Other examples are optimism in the experience of death and optimism in the celebration of life. Further, optimism in renewing the human spirit and optimism that knowledge of God brings to the soul. Claudia Stuart leads one to see the optimism in the face of trial and the ache of memory. Anyone wo knows Claudia Stuart knows that optimism is just an extension of her persona.
The words on these pages leap out for love of country. Love of family. Love of God. Love of people. Love of life. This collection of poems is about love of experience and finding joy in the journey.
The works of Claudia Stuart contained in this collection evoke and invite a sincere reflection of courage, honor, beauty and the richness of heritage.
