THE SAD REALITY COMES THROUGH LOUD AND CLEAR

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.

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!

What Does Toad From Mario Kart Look Like Then?

Toad  is a fictional character who primarily appears in Nintendo’s Mario franchise. Created by Japanese video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto, he is portrayed as a citizen of the Mushroom Kingdom and is one of Princess Peach’s most loyal attendants; constantly working on her behalf.

~Wikipedia~

BLine

The Twitterverse is having a collective meltdown over the fact that Mario Kart became a trending topic today for all the wrong reasons.

No, the beloved Super Mario-themed racing game franchise is not getting the 9th installment, not yet anyway. Stormy Daniel’s remarks attracted online attention really fast, particularly the fact that she compared Drumpf’s penis to the good citizens of the Mushroom Kingdom.

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

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.

Watch the season finale of Breaking Big to follow Cruz’s story from humble beginnings to becoming one of the most vocal mayors in the United States. Breaking Big is a new documentary series from the minds of OZY and PBS.
