FOREVER IN MY HEART

You can take a Puerto Rican out of the country.

You can live far away from home.

Distance is but a number.

You can never take the ‘Puerto Rican’ out of a Puerto Rican.

Always in my heart!

‘Boricua hasta en la luna!’

I would be ‘Boricua’ even if I lived in the Moon!

DAVID AND GOLIATH

The David and Goliath story is one of the most powerful analogies a communicator can use to describe an adversarial scenario between imbalanced competing interests.

Especially where the weaker party is deemed to be the more righteous competitor.

David and Goliath terminology has been used to describe a wide range of business, sports and political activities.

I can’t find a better application of this analogy than to what is happening in North Dakota.

“We have not been consulted in an appropriate manner about … the traditional cultural properties, sites, or landscapes vital to our identity and spiritual well-being.”

ON A PUERTO RICO STATE OF MIND

I saw this video yesterday. It brought many memories back. The scenery surely shows many important and very well known places in Puerto Rico.

The singer is Cuban-born Lissette Alvarez who left Cuba with her parents.

They were very well known in the musical industry.

Lissette followed her parents footsteps and is a very well known singer in the Latino community.

She’s still very active in the music scene.

The video is very well done.

The images show the beauty of Puerto Rico, its progress through time, some of the culture and natural resources.

Puerto Rico isn’t what it’s been made to be … a country in the throes of a bad reputation because it doesn’t pay its bills, because it doesn’t know what it wants to be “when it grows up”, because of rampart crime.

No!

Puerto Rico is a beautiful place which has fought,and continues to fight, to keep its identity, culture, customs, governance.

In spite of all the efforts to strip HER of all of this, the Puerto Rican spirit remains.

It will never be squashed!

VIVA PUERTO RICO LIBRE!

Puerto Rico, officially the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (Spanish: Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico, literally the “Free Associated State of Puerto Rico”), is a United States territory located in the northeastern Caribbean.

Puerto Rico is an archipelago that includes the main island of Puerto Rico and a number of smaller islands. The capital and largest city isSan Juan. The territory does not observe daylight saving time, and its official languages are Spanish, which is predominant, and English.

Puerto Rico’s rich history, warm tropical climate, diverse natural scenery, renowned traditional cuisine and attractive tax incentives make it a popular destination for tourists, academics, and business visitors. Because of its location in the Caribbean and history of colonization, Puerto Rico’s culture is a melting pot of Taíno, Spanish, African and North American influences.

Maya Angelou …. May you rest in Peace!!


~~May 28, 2014~~ 

A humble celebration of a giant pillar of our Earth

THERE ARE NO WORDS TO ADEQUATELY ACKNOWLEDGE THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS INCREDIBLY AMAZING HUMAN BEING. NEITHER ARE THERE WORDS TO QUANTIFY THE LOSS THAT WE HAVE HAD WITH HER PASSING AND LEAVING THIS PLANE.

May she rest in eternal peace ….. Heaven has a new angel.

~~MAYA ANGELOU~~

Maya Angelou (born Marguerite Ann Johnson; April 4, 1928 – May 28, 2014) was an American author and poet. She published seven autobiographies, three books of essays, and several books of poetry, and is credited with a list of plays, movies, and television shows spanning more than fifty years.

She received dozens of awards and over thirty honorary doctoral degrees. Angelou is best known for her series of seven autobiographies, which focus on her childhood and early adult experiences.

The first, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings (1969), tells of her life up to the age of seventeen, and brought her international recognition and acclaim.

She became a poet and writer after a series of occupations as a young adult, including fry cook, prostitute, night-club dancer and performer, cast-member of the opera Porgy and Bess, coordinator for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, and journalist in Egypt and Ghana during the days of decolonization.

She was an actor, writer, director, and producer of plays, movies, and public television programs. Since 1982, she taught at Wake Forest University in Winston-SalemNorth Carolina, where she holds the first lifetime Reynolds Professorship of American Studies.

She was active in the Civil Rights movement, and worked with Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X. Since the 1990s she made around eighty appearances a year on the lecture circuit, something she continued into her eighties. In 1993, Angelou recited her poem “On the Pulse of Morning” at President Bill Clinton‘s inauguration, the first poet to make an inaugural recitation since Robert Frost at John F. Kennedy‘s inauguration in 1961.

With the publication of I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, Angelou publicly discussed aspects of her personal life. She was respected as a spokesperson of black people and women, and her works have been considered a defense of black culture.

Although attempts have been made to ban her books from some US libraries, her works are widely used in schools and universities worldwide. Angelou’s major works have been labeled as autobiographical fiction, but many critics have characterized them as autobiographies. She made a deliberate attempt to challenge the common structure of the autobiography by critiquing, changing, and expanding the genre.

Her books center on themes such as racism, identity, family, and travel. Angelou is best known for her autobiographies, but she is also an established poet, although her poems have received mixed reviews.
