Historical Photo of the Day: I Pledge Allegiance to the Flag

I remember … way wack then … I’m re-thinking this!!


War Against All Puerto Ricans: Revolution and Terror in America’s Colony

Jack Delano visited Puerto Rico for the first time in 1941, on a photo assignment from the US Farm Services Administration. 

He loved the island so much that he returned with his wife in 1946. He lived there for the next 51 years, until he died in 1997. 

Delano never stopped taking photographs. He left over 15,000 images of Puerto Rico. Many of them show a striking sensitivity: an awareness of the person, the landscape, and the spirit inside both of them. 

The moment you see below, was preserved by Delano in 1946, shortly after he returned to Puerto Rico.  

The image speaks for itself.

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!!!
