BORICUA SPIRIT

PROUD PUERTO RICAN

I just came back to Florida after spending a week in my country, Puerto Rico.

A bit more after one year post Hurricane María, this is what you still see.

The resilience of the Puerto Rican people, their spirit and the happiness in spite of adversity is are forces to be reckoned with.

My people are strong, my country is still struggling yet their strength is formidable. 

I’m very proud to be Puerto Rican!

HER LASTING IMPACT

AMAZING!

I find this to be an lasting testament to Dr. Ford’s ordeal.

It catches the lasting effects of what she experienced as a teen.

“Indelible in the hippocampus … ‘

For the Oct. 15, 2018, TIME cover on the impact of Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony and the significance of her voice, we used Ford’s words to create her portrait.

As Haley Sweetland Edwards writes in the accompanying story, “the moment Dr. Christine Blasey Ford walked into the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, raised her right hand and swore to tell the truth, it was clear to millions of Americans that something momentous was about to unfold.”

Using words and phrases from Ford’s testimony, San Francisco-based artist John Mavroudis recreated her likeness by drawing each letter by hand.

“This particular process is like putting a jigsaw puzzle together, but with an infinite number of possibilities,” says Mavroudis.

“I started with an image of Ford and then drew the words in where they might be appropriate.”

“The memory quotes would be attached to her forehead area, and the quotes about wanting to help I placed on her hand. The hand could be seen as welcoming, but also deflecting,” Mavroudis said.

“It’s a fascinating process to watch the face take shape, while hoping that you’ve captured the essence.”

THE LAST LOCKDOWN

THE SAD REALITY COMES THROUGH LOUD AND CLEAR

I have no words.

The sculpture explains it all even if you don’t read the article below.

Father Of Parkland Shooting Victim Sculpts Haunting Image Of Child Hiding Under Desk
Manuel Oliver created “The Last Lockdown” partially using 3D printing

Artist Manuel Oliver, who lost his 17-year-old son Joaquin during the February shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, has created a striking sculpture depicting a child hiding under a desk to signify when a school is on lockdown.
The statue is one of 10 being shown across the country during voter registration drives, specifically in congressional districts where politicians back the gun lobby. The title of the project is “The Last Lockdown.”

The figures were created using 3D printers, an intentional reference to the debate over guns potentially being 3D printed.

The desks are real school desks.  “We want you to feel unsettled,” the project’s co-creator Sean Leonard said. 

Oliver and Leonard teamed up with Giffords, the gun reform group founded by former congresswoman Gabby Giffords.

Giffords is a mass shooting victim herself, being left partially paralyzed after a lone gunman opened fire at a meet-and-greet in Tucson, Arizona, in 2011.

WHAT HAPPENED TO FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION?

IT HAD TO BE A WOMAN

I’ve used this picture before.

I believed in the power of it and my feelings reflect hers without doubt. If I had the opportunity of doing this, I would’ve done the same.

She continues to be a ‘shero’ to me.

Hang in there, Juli Briskman, better things will come your way!

The picture, snapped by a White House photographer traveling with the president as he left his golf course in Sterling, Va., went viral almost immediately. News outlets picked up the story when it appeared in a White House pool report. Late-night talk show hosts told jokes about the encounter and people on social media began hailing the unidentified woman as a “she-ro,” using the hashtag #Her2020.
The woman’s name is Juli Briskman.

Her employer, government contractor Akima LLC, wasn’t so happy about the photo. They fired her over it.

Asked what she was thinking when she saw Trump’s motorcade roll up next to her, Briskman said it was a gut reaction to flip him off.
“He was passing by and my blood just started to boil,” she said. “I’m thinking, DACA recipients are getting kicked out. He pulled ads for open enrollment in Obamacare. Only one-third of Puerto Rico has power. I’m thinking, he’s at the damn golf course again.”
I flipped off the motorcade a number of times,” she added.

Briskman, a Democrat, said she plans to look for a new job with an advocacy group that she believes in, like Planned Parenthood or PETA.

“In some ways, I’m doing better than ever,” she said. “I’m angry about where our country is right now. I am appalled.

This was an opportunity for me to say something.”

Despite getting fired, she said she has no regrets about the attention her public show of displeasure with Drumpf received.

In fact, she said she’s happy to be an image of protest that resonates with many Americans.

~HAD TO BE A WOMAN~

Hail to the chief: cyclist gives Drumpf the middle finger

The ‘so-called president’ of the United States is used to being saluted but a cyclist in Virginia put her own particular slant on the tradition on Saturday when she was overtaken by Drumpf’s motorcade.

The woman on her bike was photographed raising her middle finger when Drumpf’s vehicles passed her on their way out from the Drumpf National Golf Club on the banks of the Potomac river, on the outskirts of Washington DC.

She repeated the gesture when she caught up with the motorcade.

As noted in the White House pool report, “POTUS’s motorcade departed the Drumpf National Golf Club at 3:12 PM, passing two pedestrians, one of whom gave a thumbs-down sign.

Then it overtook a female cyclist, wearing a white top and cycling helmet, who responded by giving the middle finger.

“The motorcade had to slow and the cyclist caught up, still offering the finger, before turning off in a different direction.

Motorcade is now gathering speed and heading for DC.”

Social media users responded to the image of the cyclist with messages such as “Heroine!” and “Her2020”.
