PUERTO RICO …. β€œπŸ‡΅πŸ‡· In Case You Missed It: Nobody Sleeps πŸ‡΅πŸ‡· …. β€œ!!


~~January 30, 2020~~

WHY ARE PUERTO RICANS SLEEPING OUTSIDE THEIR HOMES?

I can tell you. I was there. I traveled to Puerto Rico on December 31, 2019.

I was awakened by the strong earthquake of January 7, 2019.

I felt it and many after.

I’m one of the lucky ones whose property on the Island wasn’t damaged and also lucky because I can come back to the mainland.

However, even though I’m back in the mainland, my mind, heart and soul stayed behind; now more than ever.

πŸ‡΅πŸ‡·Β … I’ve thought that if I’m going to suffer because of the current American reality, I will suffer in my country, my nation, my home! No matter how ‘broken’ Puerto Rico may be, it is the place where I took my first breath!! … Puerto Rico is resilient and will rise again, particularly if the ‘master’ lets go …Β πŸ‡΅πŸ‡·

Puerto Rico has experienced over 2,000 earthquakes in the last month. For many Puerto Ricans, the psychological consequences of the disaster are just as significant as the structural damage.

Puerto Rico lies in a tectonically active region where earthquakes have occurred for centuries, but because the country has not experienced a quake of this level of impact since 1918, the recent quakes, their aftershocks, and resulting damage took many islanders by surprise.

About 7,500 people have left their homes for other kinds of shelter, including, in some cases, cars and tents.

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!!!
