IOTD …. “🇵🇷 Image of the Day, ‘Island Edition – Vieques. Puerto Rico’ 🇵🇷 …. “!!

~~April 3, 2021~~


Why use this graphic?

The shot of U.S. Marines raising an American flag on the Japanese island of Iwo Jima, captured by Associated Press photographer Joe Rosenthal, has become a timeless symbol of valor and unity.Feb 21, 2020.



The first time I saw the illustration of a little girl raising the Puerto Rican flag using the symbolism of the Iwo Jima event was after Hurricane María devastated the island. I’m not aware of who created the image or if it was used before.

I’m assuing that it’s use here to illustrate the plight of Vieques after the hurricane. The was plenty of damage on the tiny island and the response to aid in recovery hasn’t been acceptable or effective.

Vieques too needs help!

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!!!
