September 20, 2017 …. “🇵🇷 Etched in the Hearts of ALL Puerto Ricans Everywhere 🇵🇷 …. “!!

Thinking of the day Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico

The images are vivid.

Today, marks a year that Puerto Rico went under dark — no electricity, food or communication. Puerto Rico became a graveyard and a political nightmare. Over 3,000 Americans died.

I remember this day clearly, fear entered in my heart not knowing the wellbeing of my family and friends.

A year after, the people of Puerto Rico are trying to make sense how come the federal government continues to neglect them and ignore their cry for help – kids and the sick are going without food and proper care. The trauma and financial hardship is real.

This is genocide.

Drumpf and his administration do not care.

This is what happens when an Island is colonized for years and exploited for its natural resources.

The People of Puerto Rico are strong and resilient.

We rise.

AGT’S FINALS

America’s Got Talent 2018

I watched the finals last night.

There were ten so very talented contestants. It was a finale worth of any venue in Las Vegas and worth the $1,000,000 prize.

Results will be announced tonight.

I really liked all of them. These, however, are my favorite ones.

Take a look.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

Carmen Yulín Cruz …. “🇵🇷 Mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico …. The Voice of her Struggling Island and the Puerto Rican People 🇵🇷 …. “!!


Yul1

~~September 16, 2018~~ 

CARMEN YULIN CRUZ

~MAYOR OF SAN JUAN, THE CAPITAL CITY OF PUERTO RICO~

Carmen Yulín Cruz Soto (born February 25, 1963) is an American politician who is the current mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Cruz is affiliated with the Popular Democratic Party.

I have to confess that I didn’t know anything about this woman.

The first time I heard about her was during those terrible days after Hurricane María battered my country. I live in the mainland. I’ve been away from home since 1999.

She became the voice for those in the diaspora as we hungered for news about our country.

To this day you will hear negative comments about her.

She didn’t do her job, she took advantage of the situation to benefit her own political ambitions, she forgot about the people of San Juan, she’s posing because she wants to run for governor, she’s a socialist, she aligns herself with Puerto Rico’s independence while pretending to be a member of the Partido Popular Democrático, etc., etc.

I don’t care what they say about her, I don’t care what they think … to me, she became that voice that we desperately needed to hear.

She’s the only political official who has stood up to Drumpf and his administration.

I was hungry for news about the Island after the devastating hurricane

 I was born and raised in Puerto Rico. I lived there all my life. I lived through many hurricanes, not María, of course. I know the landscape of my country. I know how the towns in the central part of the island were affected without me being there. I know, without being there, how the medical needs couldn’t be addressed because of lack of power. I knew 16, 64 deaths were not correct. There are at least 11 refrigerated vans at the forensic facility containing bodies … the capacity to conduct autopsies and eventual identification has been overwhelmed.

I have family and friends who were without power for 11 months. When communication was possible, I finally was able to get in touch with them. I sent care packages to them including the most basic items that we generally take for granted. I already went back to see.

By the time I returned, there was a semblance of recovery.

Yes, power is restored … not totally. And it’s still very fragile.

Power outings for hours and days at a time are commonplace.

Politics in Puerto Rico is ‘the national sport’. 

My political ideology related to Puerto Rico has gone through a gamut of feelings, ideas and a new conviction. The relationship with the United States is difficult to define.

I think it depends who you hear it from.

As Carmen Yulín and Drumpf enter another Twitter war, find out how the mayor of San Juan fought her way to international prominence.

“I am done being polite. I am done being politically correct. I am mad as hell,” she famously said as she fought against the entire U.S. government in managing the response to two hurricanes that devastated the Caribbean.

One year after Hurricane Maria made landfall, she’s no less mad.

Federal Hurricane María Response in Puerto Rico …. ‘🇵🇷 An Unsung Success …. NOT!! 🇵🇷 …. “!!


BestJob

~~September 12, 2018~~

BEST JOB EVER

NOT!! 

Believe you me when I say unequivocally that this isn’t true.

THIS IS TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY FALSE!

It’s a false statement from a delusional, pathological liar, narcissistic, evil, vile ‘man’ who ha no conscience and a vapid soul!

“So-called President Drumpf calling Puerto Rico response an unsung success is “a level of delusion that must be checked by those around him and by Congress,” warns @ChrisCuomo

Words from a dear friend in Puerto Rico who lived through Hurricane María and its aftermath

Speechless, angry, hurt, dazed, depressed, outraged.

To say that the federal government’s intervention during Hurricane María was a success is to insult all of those who suffered thru months of darkness, lack of basic necessities, homelessness and loss of loved ones.
More than half of FEMA officials were not certified, which means many of those who applied for help were denied due to a lack of knowledge on their part.

Containers which sat at port, waiting for inspection, as if there was the most remote possibility of guns or explosives in them. A lack of a coordinated plan to distribute essentials. Not one temporary bridge put up by National Guard or Reserve members, (who do this on regular basis in other countries during their summer trainings) in areas where entire communities or towns were completely cut off from help and supplies.

Among other situations.

To use the Island as an example of a successful mission of rescue is an insult to it’s citizens (note I don’t even bother mentioning U. S. Citizens), to those who graciously and generously helped with donations and still are on the Island, rebuilding homes for the less fortunate. To still see so many blue tarps as roofs is depressing, knowing most are senior citizens who can barely get by and pay for food and meds, much less repair with the ridiculously jacked up prices of building materials.
A horrible thought of what may happen in the Carolinas, Virginia and it’s residents.

My fervent prayers for your safety and that you find comfort after the storm.

My Thoughts on Serena Williams …. “🇺🇸🎾 Nothing Will Make Her Any Less of the Giant that She Is 🎾🇺🇸 …. “


Featured Image -- 215644

~~September 11, 2018~~ 

CAN NEVER TAKE AWAY HER SUPERPOWERS

You all know what happened

She is coming back after her pregnancy, post a life-threatening complication after developing a pulmonary embolism, a controversy about her compression ‘catsuit’ (custom-made by Nike), her decision to wear a tutu and the high stakes of the event.

To add insult to injury, she was fined $17,000.

And then, Mark Knight, Australian cartoonist, decided to rub salt in the wound!

I know what I think about her!

The 2018 US Open final between Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka will be remembered for all the wrong reasons

The match was guaranteed to make history no matter what.

Williams was gunning for her 24th Grand Slam tournament win, a number that would have tied the all-time record for the most Grand Slam singles tournament wins in history.

And Osaka was hoping to be the first Haitian-Japanese player in history to win a Grand Slam.

In the end, Osaka defeated Williams 6-2, 6-4, ensuring the latter – but her achievement was overshadowed by what happened in the match.
