Time’s Person of the Year


GRETA THUNBERG … ‘at sixteen, has succeeded in creating a global attitudinal shift, transforming millions of vague middle-of-the-night anxieties into a worldwide movement calling for change. She has offered a moral clarion call to those who are willing to act, and hurled shame on those who are not.’

Teen climate activist Greta Thunberg has been named Time Magazine’s 2019 Person of the Year. While I was personally rooting for the Hong Kong protesters who have been risking their lives on a daily basis to champion democracy, Ms Thunberg also has my deep admiration. In its announcement Time stated:

The politics of climate action are as entrenched and complex as the phenomenon itself, and Thunberg has no magic solution. But she has succeeded in creating a global attitudinal shift, transforming millions of vague middle-of-the-night anxieties into a worldwide movement calling for change. She has offered a moral clarion call to those who are willing to act, and hurled shame on those who are not.

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!!!
