VIEQUES, PUERTO RICO
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!
