MONICA PUIG

HUMANITARIAN CRISIS IN PUERTO RICO

‘Help Puerto Rico,’ it’s ‘in crisis now’

Mónica Puig is closing in on her new goal of raising $100,000 to assist Puerto Rico after Hurricane María battered the island, insisting that the US territory needs all the help it can get – and immediately.

Puig chose her words carefully when asked if the US’s response has been fast enough but the world No. 77 said:

“The only thing I can say is that we need help and we need it now.

I don’t want to see suffering in Puerto Rico.
“We need all the help we can get from wherever we can get it. I just don’t want to see lives lost due to this crisis. It means a lot, anyone who is willing to help.
“We just need their help as quickly as possible.”

The tennis ace – who became Puerto Rico’s first ever Olympic gold medalist at last year’s Rio Games – says she has been in touch with pop superstar and fellow Puerto Rican Luis Fonsi to see what else can be done to help a week after María battered the island with torrential rains and 155-mile-per-hour winds.

THE DOOR IS GOLD NOW

I do not know if this picture is real.

I don’t know if it’s been photo-shopped.

I don’t really want to find out because, in my mind, this is the color it should be now.

If it’s still the original Puerto Rican flag colors or the black and white colors,

it’s still alright.

If it’s really gold, I commend the artist.

The color of the Olympic Medal which Mónica Puig won at the Río 2016 Olympic Games.

She’s a proud Puerto Rican who made the Island vibrate and resonate with her as she accomplished her gold dreams and dedicated her win to her country.

Thank you, Mónica!

The original story behind the door

By Andrew S. Vargas

 In San Juan’s historic center there is a giant colonial door bearing an image of the Puerto Rican flag.

Known appropriately as “La Puerta de la Bandera,” the mural boldly asserts its presence from the side of an abandoned historical building on a busy commercial strip, where on any given day a gaggle of tourists flashing peace signs can be found taking turns at photos.

Since it was first painted by local artist Rosenda Álvarez four years ago with permission from the building’s owner, La Puerta has emerged as an emblematic fixture of Old San Juan and a symbol of national identity.

QUIEN ORO MERECE

(Who Deserves Gold … )

I found this article today as I surfed the net.

It’s written in Spanish but I found a way to translate it to English.

I believe it’s so well written that I would like to share it.

All credit goes to original writer.

Many have been inspired by Mónica Puig, including me.

But in this paper I refer to her mother, Astrid Marchán, who always has accompanied Mónica throughout her career.

“That simplicity of spirit and his love for others and Puerto Rico were among the many things he learned from her mother, Astrid Puig Marchán.”

Said Maria de Lourdes “Lulu” Pure for El Nuevo Día.

GoldSwirlMMomGoldSwirl

But why her?

Because she contributed largely to what today is Mónica. Her mother has been an instrument of support and inspiration to achieve help her reach her achievements.

So why not give “Honor to whom honor deserves“? Astrid expressed in many interviews the great frustrations that have passed and how much I had to emotionally support your daughter to get up and keep fighting.

Monica, loving, family and above all humble, its quality that has led to be the “querendona” of Puerto Rico. She grew up in a united family environment, but above all respect. Her mother relates that Monica played all sports and was always a very active person. In the end her mother was leaning more for the sport of tennis and then went there. She always had their support, especially her mother, who says he always loved sports. But above all we teach the importance of maintaining the family togetherness that characterizes them.

“One remembers all the efforts made to get here.”

Astrid Marchan for “First Time”

GoldSwirl

And by that I mean, our effort is key to the success of our children.

It is our responsibility to them. And I do not mean to reflect ourselves in them and try to fix our frustrations, if not support them in what they really want, your goals. Every successful person needs this pillar encourages and revives again and again, and better than that person is your mom. She, who watched you grow, who gave you life and who better to know what you need and when you need.

MP2GoldSwirl

“It was a special moment.

We hugged everyone.

I told my husband ‘we did it,'”

Astrid told El Nuevo Dia.
