Gerard M. Acosta, known to his friends as “Jerry,” a US army officer who has served numerous combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, has completed his new book “Every Sunday with My 7 Jibaritos”: a gripping and powerful masterpiece depicting how the teachings of elders inspired a young man to value his life’s journey.
Author Acosta conveys through his book his goal of voicing family and cultural values: “‘Hey, do not start playing your tambores (drums) yet,’ El Maestro said. He went on to say, ‘There are still two more questions to answer. Who to love and how love must be?’ By that time, Whita and the other women had returned to the living room. The first to reply was Uncle Yeyo. ‘We should love God over everything.’ His answered came so quickly that set the scenario for other to respond. ‘We should love our friends since they are a gift from God, we should love our enemies and show them forgiveness, we should love life because it’s the most precious thing God has given us, we should love every living creature because they are God’s creation, and we should love our fellow men,’ Uncle Yeyo said. ‘I will encourage all of you to change the auxiliary verb “should” for “must.” It provides a strong signal of what we believed,’ Uncle Mazo said. ‘I am the last to express who we must love. We must love each other and foremost our family, deep from our heart, and consistently praise God to keep us together,’ Uncle Marcelito said.”
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Gerard M. Acosta’s touching story is a reflection of Puerto Rico’s endearing devotion to their military service, politics, art, and literature.
