Dear Sir,

I don’t know your name, but you killed my father on June 9, 1973, in Stockton, California.

My father was thirty-two years old then; I was ten. If he had lived, he would have been 74 on November 29, 2014.

I am a 51-year-old woman now; my father has not been with me for most of my life, and yet I still feel his presence; I still miss him. When I was ten, and he was killed, I hated you.

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. Thank you so much for sharing my work. It is much appreciated, and I am touched by your kindness.

    On another note, I wad deeply saddened by the loss of David Bowie. I have a piece featured on it in HuffPo right now, and the picture you have on your site is my very favorite! I’ve used it in several tweets and in that post! I think it so captures Bowie’s vibrant character. Thanks again!
