Lin-Manuel Miranda, joins Congressional Democrats at a news conference to announce a new push to address the humanitarian and economic crisis in Puerto Rico
I have found a new hero, I have found a new man to admire.
I first heard about Lin-Manuel when he appeared on Jimmy Fallon’s late night show.
His ability with words and music immediately grabbed me.
Then I learned more about his Broadway his show “Hamilton”.
He’s a source of pride for the Puerto Rican people.
However, why is he my hero now?
Many of you may know that Puerto Rico is going through and experience very tough times.
You may have heard that Puerto Rico isn’t able to pay its billionaire debt.
However, there’s so much more to the situation than that.
Those who have followed this blog may know that the situation is partly because of the political limbo in which Puerto Rico has been since becoming a territory/colony of the USA.
The only Puerto Rican “celebrity voice” who has come out, loud and clear, making a case to help Puerto Rico get back on its feet has been Lin-Manuel.
This past week he visited John Oliver and did an awesome job in spreading this message.
It’s gone viral!!
A Facebook page has posted his intervention with Spanish subtitles as a public service for Puerto Ricans to better understand his message.
“Ante lo viral que se ha tornado la intervención de Lin-Manuel Miranda en el programa de John Oliver, hemos subtitulado su contenido en español para el consumo de todos los puertorriqueños como un servicio público.”
I’m including a short video where Lin-Manuel explains.
Please, take a look!
I do not own these images.
No intention of taking credit.
If anyone knows the owner of any, please advise and it will be corrected immediately.
