1. Why did you choose to write about characters who set out to rediscover their faiths?

My two central characters, Vernon and Jody, uncle and nephew, are just living life as the story begins.

A Digital Short by Vincent Zandri
A young U.S. Army officer who’s served in Afghanistan finds himself suffering from intermittent bouts of “hysterical” temporary blindness due to impossible and deadly orders he was forced to obey by high command in the field. When he’s reunited with his fiancée in a military hospital in Germany after being separated for more than year, the couple are encouraged by doctors to travel to Venice, Italy together. There, amongst the canals and the cafes, they try to rekindle their love and fight off their personal demons while trying to comprehend the enormity of the heartbreaking role they now must play in love and war.
Love at First Sight is a ‘day in the life’ of a wounded soldier. In this short-short story, a blind Marine and his fiancée attempt to rekindle their relationship in Italy. To make matters more complicated, Nick is not blinded by physical trauma, but rather due to psychological causes from his fourteen-month tour in Afghanistan. Zandri’s descriptions are lovely, heart-wrenching, and distinct. If you’re a fan of this author’s work, Love at First Sight will leave you wanting more.
