Chaos. Desperation. Lies. Again


In 1975 I was 25 years old, living in Puerto Rico, away from the constant news. Not much aware of the many of the Vietnam war details. Learning more now – the Saigon images were imprinted in my mind back then!!#SaigonMoment … “It was a human tragedy played out for all to bear witness to as we watched it on the news and on the front pages of newspapers.

Frightened citizens evacuating a dangerous homeland they didn’t want to live in anymore as Uncle Sam leaves in haste. Clawing and pushing their way onto air transport, these people had been our allies, who not so long ago were the very folks we had promised to help. Mothers. Fathers. Children.

Humanity in despair. This was what abandonment looked like. Left stranded by the U.S.” – no lessons learned! History repeats itself AGAIN!!

Envisioning The American Dream

It was pure chaos.

Swarming crowds. The frantic scrambling of bodies. Flailing arms and legs intertwined and indistinguishable from one another as they morphed into one large mass of human desperation in their effort to flee to freedom.

Anguished women and men their faces etched in raw fear hopelessly clinging to a whirling helicopter as strongly as they clung to the hope and promise of a better life, their dreams shattered as their country was taken over by thugs.

It was sight for sore eyes. And a sore heart.

It was a human tragedy played out for all to bear witness to as we watched it on the news and on the front pages of newspapers.

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!!!

  1. Totally agree. This is disgusting. To recruit people and then betray them is unspeakable. The US government is being run as if it were a large corporation, in which people are fodder to be used and discarded. It totally undercuts the image of caring about people that the Democrats are trying to project. The GOP doesn’t have that issue because they have made clear that they don’t care about people. It doesn’t matter to the GOP if their own supporters are alive or dead.
