The sacrifices of women …. recognized!!


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

This photo was taken by Edwin Rosskam in 1938. 

It is in a poor neighborhood of Ponce.

The loneliness and desolation recall another image by Andrew Wyeth. You have probably seen it….

Christina’s World was painted ten years after the Rosskam photo, in 1948. 

In our readings and discussion of history, and even our world literature, we frequently overlook the deeper resonances in women’s souls. They are connected to life and death in ways that many “heroes” could not even imagine.

Often those heroes look quite childish in comparison to the everyday sacrifice, and unfathomable suffering, that many women have endured…

For eons.

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!!!
