UNVEILING OF LGBT MONUMENT

BY: JEREMY WILLIAMS

JULY 5, 2016

Puerto Rico has its first LGBT monument in the island’s history, which now is also a memorial to the victims of the Pulse shooting.

The monument is seven concrete pillars, each covered in colorful mosaics, and sits at the entrance of Sixto Escobar Stadium in San Juan’s Third Millennium Park, according to Noticel, a Puerto Rican publication.

The monument cost an estimated $9,000, funded by city taxpayers, Noticel reports.

It was designed by Alberto de la Cruz.

A section of the monument lists the names of the 49 people who lost their lives at the Pulse shooting, highlighting the names of the 23 Puerto Rican victims.

Next to the names, written in Spanish, is the quote,

“This tribute to life strengthens our commitment to fight hate – the product of homophobia – with love and respect.

Our slogan resounds in all our hearts:

Love is love, is love, is love …

The monument’s dedication took place almost exactly one year after a federal judge in Puerto Rico first ruled in favor of marriage equality.

Although an anti-equality judge in Puerto Rico tried to halt that ruling, a federal appeals court determined in April that the U.S. Supreme Court’s June 2015 decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, which brought marriage equality to all 50 states, was also binding in Puerto Rico, an unincorporated territory of the United States.

“We celebrate life,” said San Juan mayor Carmen Yulín at the monument’s inauguration. “We must work together to eradicate discrimination and homophobia. We must raise our voice for justice and equality of every human being.

We must aspire to a country where everyone is equal and not be judged by how we love.”

To start the day …. “Remembering John Lennon”!!


~~December 8, 2014~~ 

It’s been 34 years. To me it still feels like yesterday. Though the pain has lessened, the loss of this wonderful human being still is felt deep within me. Wondering always … what if!

AN AFFIRMATION FOR PLANET EARTH
Yoko Ono Lennon
December 8, 2009

“On the anniversary of the passing of my husband, John Lennon,
I would like you to share an affirmation with me.
Think it, say it, with firm belief,
knowing that we are all one.

In the name of truth, peace and love:
Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Our planet is healthy and whole,
We, the people of Earth
See clearly, Hear clearly, Think clearly.
Make the right judgement, right decision and the right move
For the benefit of our planet and others.

We are now bathing in the light of Dawn,
Standing in the Heaven we have created together,
Sharing the Joy
With all Lives on Earth
And of the Universe,
As we are all one, united with infinite and eternal love.

For the highest good of all concerned, So be it.

With all my love,
yoko ono lennon”

I’ve been aware of this award and when I heard about this story, I placed the graphic on the sidebar of the blog. It has never left its place of honor. 

More than an award, it is a memorial to keep Vicky’s spirit alive. I’m ask friends to share it and pass it on.
