MONICA PUIG

HUMANITARIAN CRISIS IN PUERTO RICO

‘Help Puerto Rico,’ it’s ‘in crisis now’

Mónica Puig is closing in on her new goal of raising $100,000 to assist Puerto Rico after Hurricane María battered the island, insisting that the US territory needs all the help it can get – and immediately.

Puig chose her words carefully when asked if the US’s response has been fast enough but the world No. 77 said:

“The only thing I can say is that we need help and we need it now.

I don’t want to see suffering in Puerto Rico.
“We need all the help we can get from wherever we can get it. I just don’t want to see lives lost due to this crisis. It means a lot, anyone who is willing to help.
“We just need their help as quickly as possible.”

The tennis ace – who became Puerto Rico’s first ever Olympic gold medalist at last year’s Rio Games – says she has been in touch with pop superstar and fellow Puerto Rican Luis Fonsi to see what else can be done to help a week after María battered the island with torrential rains and 155-mile-per-hour winds.

Puerto Rico Update …. “🇵🇷 Two Weeks in …. It’s an Exercise in Survival 🇵🇷 …. “!!

PUERTO RICO UPDATE

​”AN EXERCISE IN SURVIVIAL”

This is a post written by my very dear friend Suzy P., who currently lives in Illinois. She spent plenty years in Puerto Rico while her husband Grant worked there.

Suzy absorbed the Puerto Rican culture and ways as second nature. 

Today, from a distance, she feels like we do.

Her soul and her heart ache as much as mine. 

This is a thread written by her husband’s boss just one day ago.

BLine

Today, Oct 6th, Grant and I finally heard from Grant’s former boss in Moca, Puerto Rico. Frank was the plant manager for the Baxter Fenwal plant in San Germán for many years.

Frank is one of the most calm, capable, resourceful men that we know.

Grant spoke to Frank the night before Hurricane Maria hit and he was well prepared for the hurricane.

He tells us today that the past two weeks have been truly an exercise in survival.

BLine

Here is the series of text messages we got from Frank today

“Devastation here. No drinking water, running generator, gas supply (on the island) still stabilizing, cell signal now intermittent. We are OK. Bank access limited. Supermarkets having generator issues.

These first two weeks have been an exercise in survival.

Prioritization, focus, luck.”

Dominica Hurricane Maria

“Difficult environment. Eye passed over Moca, 35 minutes, second half horrible. Wind damage extensive in all west coast towns, Aguada, Aguadilla, flooding on coasts, massive erosion.

I’ve lost 11 pounds. Dehydration.

Nightmare scenario – we got nuked.

People helping each other.”

Erosion

“I have never seen or felt anything like this. During the height of the storm, I thought a few times we were history. It felt like a concussive force. And it wouldn’t stop. Rincón sustained significant damage.

Downed power lines, land slides, flooding.

Roads still marginal.”

MAria

After Grant offered to come down and help, Frank wrote:

“Don’t come here, you’ll never get out”.

(Some airlines report they have waiting lists of over 20,000 people wanting to leave the island).

Puerto Rico Faces Extensive Damage After Hurricane Maria

Please keep Puerto Rico’s ongoing humanitarian crisis in the news.

Send donations & prayers.

Many whom we love are there.

IT LOOKS LIKE THEY NUKED US

Ricky is a proud Puerto Rican

He has always been known for his love of the Island.

After the damaging effects and aftermath of Hurricane María, he has embarked on a mission to help the people of his Island.

He’s gone back to Puerto Rico and distributed tons of bare necessities,

He’s going back this Sunday, October 8, with 120 tons of supplies to deliver.

Every little bit helps!

I’m very proud to be a fellow countrywoman to this wonderful human being!

‘It Looks Like They Nuked Us’

Ricky Martin returned to Ellen Friday to discuss his recent trip to Puerto Rico, where the singer distributed basic necessities to those affected by Hurricane Maria.

“I don’t wanna be pessimistic, I just want to be realistic: The images don’t do justice to what really happened in Puerto Rico.

It looks like they nuked us,” Martin said. “Regardless of what people say, right now Puerto Rico is still struggling, and I don’t see light at the tunnel.”

Martin added that he was returning to the island on Sunday with a FedEx plane filled with basic necessities for those still recovering from Hurricane Maria. Martin also thanked Ellen viewers for assisting in his YouCaring relief efforts, which saw its donations increase from $200,000 to $1.8 million following his last appearance on the show.

Dear friends,

Puerto Rico has been devastated by Hurricane Maria, and the island desperately need us. This is a humanitarian crisis affecting 3.5 million people. The power grid is destroyed, food and water are in short supply and we all need to work together now. For this reason, I created this page to collect funds and my donation of $100,000 is already in, as well as the generous donations from the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation and many others.

The Ricky Martin Foundation team on the ground is already working with the local government, local volunteers.

TOUCHING HURRICANE RELIEF SONG

Lin-Manuel Miranda Assembled An Epic Cast 

This is what makes Puerto Ricans Puerto Ricans.

The undying spirit against adversity. My heart and soul have been aching since Hurricane María battered my country. The days after have been sadder as images come out of the utter devastation of a beautiful Caribbean Island.

The Puerto Rican spirit is battered but not broken after Maria.

“I would much rather be writing a song than jumping up and down and making noise.” Miranda said. He continued,

“And if the government’s response were commensurate with the people’s spirit and compassion we’d be on the road to recovery and ending this crisis so much faster.”

BLineAl2BLine

CLARE PALO

Lin-Manuel Miranda, the genius behind the musical “Hamilton,” has teamed up with Latin singers to create a touching song for Hurricane relief in Puerto Rico.

The Tony Award winner, 37, created “Almost Like Praying” in response to the severe need to relief in Puerto Rico, after islanders were left without running water, generators, food or electricity.

Miranda assembled an all-star cast of artists, including Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, Camila Cabello, Gloria Estefan, Rita Moreno, among others.

Proceeds of the track titled, “Almost Like Praying,” will go to the Hispanic Federation’s Hurricane Relief Fund, which is also working with New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio to help bring supplies to Puerto Rico.

The municipalities of Puerto Rico number seventy-eight incorporated towns and cities. Each municipality is led by a mayor and divided into barrios, though the latter are not vested with any political authority.

Every municipality is governed by the Autonomous Municipalities Act of 1991 which establishes that every municipality must have a strong mayor with a municipal legislature.

~Wikipedia~

BLineAlmostP3BLine

Every town in Puerto Rico is mentioned in this song.

The mastery of combining these names with the undertone of West Side Story’s María isn’t lost on any Puerto Rican.

This is very close to my heart.

Brings a tear to my eyes!

Johns Creek nine-year-old Angelica Hale surprised the audience on night two with a super mature voice for her age

Angelica Hale was the “girl on fire” when she performed Tuesday night, July 18, on America’s Got Talent.

The nine-year-old, who hails from Atlanta, Georgia, blew away the judges with her powerful performance of “Girl on Fire,” Alicia Keys’ hit from 2012.

Having delivered a flawless rendition of Andra Day’s “Rise Up” earlier in the season, Hale admitted she was nervous but excited. Though it didn’t show as her rousing performance had the crowd on its feet.

Her back story: when she was four years old, she lost her kidney function after double pneumonia. Fortunately, her mom provided her daughter a kidney and she has thrived.

‘DESPACITO’

Mark Isaiah performed with Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee on their song, “Despacito,” for The Voice finals

Fonsi and Daddy Yankee are Puerto Rican singers behind the international phenomenon and No. 1 song on the Billboard Hot 100. Mark was a welcome addition to the season’s final episode.

GoldSwirl

How could I have forgotten this cover?

I was watching The Voice’s Finale and I saw this live.

It’s become a ‘brainworm’.

I do like the song.

The main reason is because it’s an awesome hit for two well-known Puerto Rican singers, each one in their own category.

Their work together in this project has become worldwide known … inspiring covers and parodies.

Go, Puerto Rico!!

“PUDDLES PITY PARTY”

AMERICA’S GOT TALENT

I’ve started watching ‘America’s Got Talent‘.

This is my second season. It’s a refreshing surprise to watch his man, a sad clown with a golden voice perform.

It made my life better then.

I’m looking forward for more performances from him.

PUDDLES PITY PARTY’S GOLDEN VOICE IMPRESSED AMERICA’S GOT TALENT JUDGES

Much to the bemusement of the judges and everybody in the audience, Puddles stepped in front of the mic as he usually does, with his giant suitcase and lantern. When pressed for some background info from the judges, he maintained the silent character he always has, only making a sound when he began his performance of Sia’s “Chandelier”.

Of course, he nailed the performance as he always does, but this TV appearance gave us something we’ve never really seen from Puddles before: genuine emotion. His singing is always poignant, but his character is just that: a character.

He’s a sad clown, but when he heard the enthusiastic applause following his big break, he got actually emotional in a real human way, tears running down his face and everything.

Thoughts for today, #381 …. “Another VINO …. crossed the rainbow bridge ….”!!


WineCat

~~May 26, 2016~~

IN MEMORY OF VINO

One of my very dearest friends is going through a rough time because her cat “Vino” was sick and had to be euthanized.

You need to know that barely three months ago she went through the very same thing with her other cat, Camilla.

Vino” was a feral kitten, adopted by my friend.

The chosen name was “Vino” because my friend enjoys her glasses of wine.

After I learned about “Vino’s” crossing, I found this graphic as I surfed through my Facebook timeline.

I thought of her immediately and tagged her on this graphic.

It felt to me that this is just exactly what my friend would want to be doing.

Safe passage, Mr. Vino.
