About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!

  1. I liked this only to let you know I was here, I suppose this note would suffice. Some day, this nation must ‘own’ the real harm we have done in our history. Only when we do, only then will we ever begin to walk the road to redemption.

    • I agree. There should be different options, aside from “like”, to reflect how you feel about any post … disgust would apply here. That’s the only reason this picture was posted. That is one very sad reality of a time. Redemption? I think that’s almost unattainable.

      • I refuse to believe redemption is unattainable. I know, I am teased quite often I live in “hopeland” and it is a dream. I am however, despite evidence to the contrary, helplessly flawed in I believe we, humans, are capable of great good given the opportunity.

      • I sure hope so too. And I sometimes struggle to keep the faith. I love your hopeland but at times it hard …. Don’t you think?

      • Yes, at times it is very hard. At times I am simply undone by how hard it is. But I want very much to believe the good in the world and in people is more powerful than the evil. Despite evidence to the contrary. I want very much to believe love is stronger, hope is stronger, charity is stronger.

        I know my wanting it doesn’t make it so. Yet, I still want to believe it. I want to live my life believing it, even if sometimes it gets me in trouble and despite it gets me hurt, I do not want to live as if evil rules.

      • Me neither. I know the feeling. Taking trips into the past doesn’t help. Not dies listening to our news or the state of the world. I want to believe as much as you do.
        When I’m getting to a poor where it looks like it will happen, something atrocious happens. Yet again, we continue to hope …. I sure hope!!

      • Yeah, me too. Despite what certain people think though, I am a realist. I do know there are monsters and I do know we have a long ways to go. I also know we have to define the past in real terms rather than turn away from it, if we don’t we are lost. I truly think that is part of what is wrong right now, we refuse to acknowledge what this nation is founded on.

      • I have been saying this for a long time. The answer is in connecting like minded people across borders and boundaries. There are far more things in common than not, despite what we may think separates us we have far more in common. It is simply sitting down and talking, finding the common threads.

      • Indeed. I am working my way through two days worth of posts right now, plus writing two days worth. I had to take a step back yesterday. Yesterday was a bad day I think. Whenever there is a shooting it triggers me, I have a bit of PSTD and it is hard for me to write until I take a few deep breaths.
