CHRISTMAS EVE

This Christmas Eve, millions of American children will leave out cookies and milk for Santa Claus to enjoy after his trip down their chimney with his bag of gifts. Some will add a few carrots for his trusty reindeer, as Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen and Rudolph need sustenance as well.

But it hasn’t always been that way.

According to one theory, the cookies-and-milk custom is derived from an older tradition, when families would stuff stockings with goodies for Santa and hang them by the chimney, his preferred mode of entrance, as a welcoming gift. Now, however, those stockings are usually chock-full of treats and smaller gifts for the family members themselves.

~Always Embrace Your Flag~

My flag represents my country.

It has 5 bars colored red and white.

It has a blue triangle were a lone star sits.

This flag represents me.

The three red stripes represent the blood from the brave warriors.

The two white stripes represent the victory and peace that they would have after gaining independence.

The white star represented the island of Puerto Rico.

The blue represents the sky and blue coastal waters.

CONFEDERATE FLAG

The “Confederate flag,” as it is colloquially referred to, was the flag used in battle by the Army of Northern Virginia during the Civil War.

The actual flag of the Confederate States of America featured red and white stripes offset by a blue canton (a term that usually describes a rectangular block in the upper-left corner of a flag) and white stars. The battle flag came into use in 1861, when Confederate Gen. P.G.T. Beauregard complained that the flag of the Confederacy appeared too similar to the American flag on the battlefield.

The battle flag, designed by secessionist William Porcher Miles, was incorporated into the second design of the Confederate flag and was also adopted as the Navy Jack, in 1863. The design remained a part of the Confederate flag until the fall of the Confederacy in 1865.

The origins and symbolism of the flag are the subject of heated debate.

The flag has long been divisive.

Descendants of Confederate soldiers who served in the Civil War argue that the flag is an emblem of their heritage. Others say it carries an insignia that is inextricably linked to racism and hate, especially since it has been adopted by many neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups.

JUMPING WITH JOY 

You don’t need a special reason.

All you need is to be on the wall of an old fort in Puerto Rico.

You see the guard’s station …. ‘Garita del Diablo‘, you see the ocean, you feel the breeze, you see the blue sky.

Your heart swells.

The happiness of being there overtakes you.

You feel your roots and your heritage.

You can’t help but jump with joy!

MI COQUI

El Coquí 
(Ko’Kee)

Soy caramelo
fingernail small
con alma Taína
once you hear me
you won’t forget
Coquí! coquí! coquí!

I am hard to catch.
Not many know
the origin of my song.
Coquí! coquí! coquí!

A midnight serenade
keeps the island alive.
Coquí! coquí! coquí!

I belong to the Old World.
I hide by the river
travel on a leaf of your mind
Coquí! coquí! coquí!

Confederate flag pulled from SC capitol grounds by activists

An activist group claimed responsibility for taking the flag down. Witnesses said two people were arrested by authorities almost immediately after one of them scaled the flag pole on the north side of the State House grounds and pulled the Confederate banner down.

The state Bureau of Protective Services confirmed it had arrested two people at the State House about 6:15 a.m. Those arrested were Brittany Ann Byuarim Newsome, a 30-year-old Raleigh resident, and James Ian Tyson, a 30-year-old Charlotte resident.

They are charged with defacing state property, a misdemeanor that carries penalties of up to three years in prison or a fine of up to $5,000 or both.

To some “Bree” is a hero. To others, she’s an enemy.

To some she’s expressing her freedom of speech.

To others she’s insulting their heritage.

I know what she is to me.

You decide what she is to you.

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”’
