ON A PUERTO RICO STATE OF MIND

I saw this video yesterday. It brought many memories back. The scenery surely shows many important and very well known places in Puerto Rico.

The singer is Cuban-born Lissette Alvarez who left Cuba with her parents.

They were very well known in the musical industry.

Lissette followed her parents footsteps and is a very well known singer in the Latino community.

She’s still very active in the music scene.

The video is very well done.

The images show the beauty of Puerto Rico, its progress through time, some of the culture and natural resources.

Puerto Rico isn’t what it’s been made to be … a country in the throes of a bad reputation because it doesn’t pay its bills, because it doesn’t know what it wants to be “when it grows up”, because of rampart crime.

No!

Puerto Rico is a beautiful place which has fought,and continues to fight, to keep its identity, culture, customs, governance.

In spite of all the efforts to strip HER of all of this, the Puerto Rican spirit remains.

It will never be squashed!

VIVA PUERTO RICO LIBRE!

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.

Puerto Rico’s rich history, warm tropical climate, diverse natural scenery, renowned traditional cuisine and attractive tax incentives make it a popular destination for tourists, academics, and business visitors. Because of its location in the Caribbean and history of colonization, Puerto Rico’s culture is a melting pot of Taíno, Spanish, African and North American influences.

THIS MEANS “PUERTO RICO FROM THE SKY”

Puerto Rico, officially known as the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico), is an unincorporated territory of the United States, located in the northeastern Caribbean, east of the Dominican Republic and west of both the U.S. Virgin Islands and the British Virgin Islands.

Puerto Rico is only 100 miles long by 35 miles wide, making it the smallest island of the Greater Antilles. Puerto Rico (Spanish for “rich port”) consists of an archipelago that includes the main island of Puerto Rico and several islands: Vieques, Culebra, Mona and numerous islets.

Puerto Rico is my country. I was born and raised there. It’s not a perfect place. In reality it has the many problems that any country in the world. There’s economic conflict, politics is the national sport, there’s corruption in many agencies, there’s inequality between classes.

I think of it as a mini USA.

Still when you look at it from the beautiful Nature is possesses, it is a beautiful place.

The song played is called “Preciosa” (Precious). It’s a signature song for Puerto Rico which “talks” about the beauty of the Island and the pride that any Puerto Rican has for their homeland. It’s a “battle hymn” expressing the beauty, the pride and the certainty that, no matter what, Puerto Rico will always stand on its own, no matter the presence of the tyrant.

It’s very well performed by Marc Anthony .. a well known singer of Puerto Rican descent.
