This Thanksgiving, No Place for Refugees at the American Table
Posted on Nov 18, 2015

In the wake of the horrific attacks in Paris on Nov. 13, there has been a crushing backlash against refugees from the wars in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. As Americans prepare for one of the most popular national holidays, Thanksgiving, which commemorates the support and nourishment provided by the indigenous people to English refugees seeking a better life free from religious persecution, a wave of xenophobia is sweeping the country.

In the U.S. Congress, no less than six separate bills have been put forward to block any federal funding to resettle refugees from Syria or Iraq and to empower states to deny entry into their “territory.” 

Imagine if all of a sudden we had 50 “statelets” creating their own border checkpoints, stopping all travelers, looking for anyone suspicious, i.e., any and all Syrians.

So far, 31 state governors have essentially demanded this.


Republican Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback issued an executive order forbidding any agency of state government from cooperating in any way with Syrian refugee support efforts. House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have called for a pause in the Syrian refugee program, with the support of Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer.

(all so called Chrstians)

It has been almost 400 years since that first, fateful Thanksgiving feast in Massachusetts.

Xenophobic policies like those threatening to shut out refugees from these wars, if allowed to stand, should serve as a shameful centerpiece at every Thanksgiving table this year.

To start the day …. “Puerto Rico Desde El Aire”!!


~~November 9, 2015~~ 


I found this page browsing through Facebook.

The accompanying video was presented as a thank you and recognition for continued visits and views to their page.

I can not begin to say how proud this makes me!

I feel nostalgic for my country.

I haven’t been back for a few years.

I go back home through the awesome videos this page.

I even see places that I have never been to or even knew that existed in my own country.

This is an amazing job that the ones presenting and administering this page ad their own website are doing.

It means a lot to those of us who are away from home.

My country is so beautiful.

It’s the “Pearl of the Caribbean” (“Perla Del Caribe”).

It doesn’t matter the hardships that it’s going through now. The spirit of the people is still there.

Their kindness, their knowledge, their love .. they are all there.

I’m so proud to be a Puerto Rican!!

I invite you to take a trip with me.

Puerto Rico, officially the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (Spanish: Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico, literally the “Free Associated State of Puerto Rico”), is a United States territory located in the northeastern Caribbean.

Puerto Rico is an archipelago that includes the main island of Puerto Rico and a number of smaller islands. The capital and largest city isSan Juan. The territory does not observe daylight saving time, and its official languages are Spanish, which is predominant, and English. The island’s population is approximately 3.6 million.

Puerto Rico’s rich history, tropical climate, diverse natural scenery and renowned traditional cuisine make it a popular destination for visitors from around the world. Its location in the Caribbean, combined with centuries of colonization and subsequent migration, has made Puerto Rican culture a distinct melting pot of Amerindian, Spanish, African and North American influences.
