‘We Are The World’ …. “🌎 We Always have Been, We Always will Be 🌎 …. “!!

TURBULENT TIMES

~We Always have Been, We Always will Be~

I find myself so pulled by the negativity and awful events taking place in our world nowadays. Sometimes it’s so overwhelming that I can’t really breathe.

I can’t fathom or wrap my head around the level of inhumanity, greed, vileness, evil, violence, crime, injustice and so much more that inhabits this world.

Music helps me.

Here’s an example.

DON PEDRO ALBIZU CAMPOS …. “🇵🇷 On the American Flag 🇵🇷 …. “!!


RedLineB

Pedro Albizu Campos (September 12, 1891 – April 21, 1965) was a Puerto Rican attorney and politician, and the leading figure in the Puerto Rican independence movement. Gifted in languages, he spoke six. He graduated from Harvard Law School with the highest grade point average in his law class, an achievement that earned him the right to give the valedictorian speech at his graduation ceremony.

However, animus towards his mixed racial heritage would lead to his professors delaying two of his final exams in order to keep Albizu Campos from graduating on time. During his time at Harvard University he became involved in the Irish struggle for independence.

Albizu Campos was the president and spokesperson of the Puerto Rican Nationalist Party from 1930 until his death in 1965. Because of his oratorical skill, he was hailed as ‘El Maestro‘ (The Teacher).

He was imprisoned twenty-six years for attempting to overthrow the United States government in Puerto Rico.

On Monday, June 25th, two friends of Antwon, 17, a rising high school senior from Rankin, Pa., who was killed by an East Pittsburgh police officer one week prior to this writing, struggled to read that poem, “I Am Not What You Think!,” as family, schoolmates and friends gathered for Antwon’s funeral at his school, Woodland Hills Intermediate School, in Swissvale, Pa.

Antwon died after being shot three times as he ran from a vehicle during a traffic stop. The police said that he and another passenger fled after an officer stopped the Chevrolet Cruze they were in because it was thought to have been involved in an earlier shooting. The driver was taken into custody, interviewed and later released, the police have said.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortéz …. “🧐🇵🇷 Get to know the Girl from the Bronx 🧐🇵🇷 … “!!

THE GIRL FROM THE BRONX

Who knew her name before the recent primaries? 

I don’t think many.

She was the upset of the evening.

I’m so very glad for her; mainly because she has Puerto Rican heritage and also because she brings new ideas which are very much needed in the current political climate.

I wish her the best and hope that the ‘monsters’ in Washington don’t have the ability to change or corrupt her.

Here’s to you, Alex!!

A former Bernie Sanders organizer, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortéz of Queens, New York City won the democrats spot in the 2018 primary elections over incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley. A 28-year-old Latina woman, Ocasio-Cortez may also be one of the youngest elected to House, at age 28. Check out our extended interview with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Alexandria (born October 13, 1989) is an American democratic socialist, activist, educator, community organizer, and politician.

On June 26, 2018, Ocasio-Cortez won the Democratic primary in New York’s 14th congressional district, defeating the incumbent, Democratic Caucus Chair Joseph Crowley, in what has been described as the biggest upset victory in the 2018 midterm election season.

Ocasio-Cortéz is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, and is also considered to be a left-wing populist.

After securing a stunning upset victory over long-term incumbent Joe Crowley in Tuesday’s Democratic primary, June 26, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortéz has suddenly become a household name.

The 28-year-old, who’s all but guaranteed to be the next congresswoman for New York’s 14th District, appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to talk about the surprise over her win and facing off against Drumpf.

Most significantly, she unpacked democratic socialism – an ideology that’s still unfamiliar, and perhaps frightening, to many – for a massive late-night TV audience.

“I believe that in a modern, moral, and wealthy society, no person in America should be too poor to live,” she explained.

“What that means to me is health care as a human right, it means that every child no matter where you are born should have access to a college or trade-school education if they so choose it.

I think that no person should be homeless if we have public structures or public policy to allow for people to have homes and food and lead a dignified life in the United States.”

~Paul McCartney On Corden’s ‘Carpool Karaoke’ Is TV At Its Best~

I’m a huge Beatles fan!

I love James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke Series.

Put them together and it’s an instant hit … at least in my mind and 21,677,891 view as of today.

It’s a bit long but for Beatles fans it’s not long enough!

Let’s take a trip down “Penny Lane”.

James Corden has set a very high standard with his Carpool Karaoke TV pieces. Only a million or two viewers watch him on CBS’ The Late Late Show when it’s broadcast, but YouTube and other social media sites extend Corden’s reach phenomenally.

A new one showcasing Sir Paul McCartney stands above all others.

In only a few days, it’s been viewed on YouTube more than 14 million+ times – and with very good reason. Not only does it have all the happiness and goofiness you expect Corden to deliver but this McCartney karaoke is also unexpectedly tender, touching and meaningful.
