WHEN WE RISE 

Whoever you are, you are not alone

How I wish I’d heard those words as I was coming up in my life.

I lived through this alone.

I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, far away from this struggle.

I struggled on my own until I discovered that I wasn’t the only one who was different.

I discovered others like me.

The process was long and prolonged. There was no internet then. The books that were available were few and difficult to come by.

Yet, I totally identify with the struggle.

That’s why we are not standing down now after the advances made since then.

I thank all of those who came before me.

I refuse to go back into the closet.

~A Love Letter to LGBT Activism~

When We Rise” was written and created by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black.

This mini-series event chronicles the real-life personal and political struggles, set-backs and triumphs of a diverse family of LGBT men and women who helped pioneer one of the last legs of the U.S. Civil Rights movement, from its turbulent infancy in the 20th century to the once unfathomable successes of today.

~Cleve Jones landed in San Francisco too late for the Summer of Love~

Fifty years ago, about 100,000 young people from around the country converged on San Francisco.

They were flower children and hippies, queers and artists, radicals and draft dodgers. A generation of freethinkers looked to the city for change, with resistance, liberation, and free expression unfurling in every corner.

Because of them, the city gave rise to movements in support of the rights of women, African-Americans, gays, farm workers, Native Americans, animals, and even the planet.

Change was everywhere.

ABC’s groundbreaking miniseries When We Rise introduces us to the lives, loves, and struggles of these activists, covering a 40-year span in the long battle for LGBT equality.

Mother Earth …. “the invasion of plastic …. man-made ‘progress’ …. disposable society …. “!!

MOTHER EARTH OVERWHELMED BY PLASTIC

It’s no surprise – we are using tons of plastic, way more than we need, and the Earth cannot digest it.

Every single piece of plastic that has been created still exists somewhere on the Earth. It is poisoning our oceans, landfills and bodies. The production of plastic goods is polluting our atmosphere, and as a result of the oil extraction process to obtain the petroleum to make the plastic, our forests are being cut down and our rivers, lakes and oceans are being polluted. When will it be enough?

The fact of the matter is, we are using more plastic now than ever before, and because it is so (seemingly) easily disposed of, most of us are completely unaware of the waste we are helping to produce, especially on a mass scale.

PLANET EARTH

“I believe in strong women.

I believe in the woman who is able to stand up for herself. I believe in the woman who doesn’t need to hide behind anyone’s back. I believe that if you have problems, as a woman you deal with them, you don’t play victim, you don’t make yourself look pitiful, you don’t point fingers.

You stand and you deal. You face the world with a head held high and you carry the universe in your heart.”

It’s more than losing an election …. it’s beyond that …. The meaning of the American Dream has been lost …. “!!

STILL GRIEVING, STILL MOURNING

The Electoral College Meets Today

I’m not naive enough to think that they will have a day of ‘profiles in courage‘ and make any significant decision that will ‘right‘ the ‘wrong‘ that is happening in the country.

I know plenty of people who have expressed their feelings.

Many have said … let it go. It’s time to accept and move on.

Give the guy a chance.

In my heart I know I can’t. 

In my heart I know this isn’t the right way for the country to go.

It will eventually affect the way the whole world will go.

I’ve tired to put into words the feelings in my heart, my soul, my psyche.

Words fail me.

Scrolling through Facebook, I found some words that resonate to much with my own feelings.

I’d like to share them with you.

These words starkly and precisely say what I felt since November 8, election night.

A fog that doesn’t want to lift ….

Let There Be Peace On Earth Partial Lyrics

Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be.
With God as our Father
Brothers all are we.
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony.

Something to think about …. “History DOES repeat itself …. yet, we forget or ignore it …. “!!

HISTORY REPEATING ITSELF

“Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed.”

~Mahatma Gandhi~

http://www.goodreads.com

bline

“There are only patterns, patterns on top of patterns, patterns that affect other patterns. Patterns hidden by patterns. Patterns within patterns.
If you watch close, history does nothing but repeat itself.
What we call chaos is just patterns we haven’t recognized. What we call random is just patterns we can’t decipher.

What we can’t understand we call nonsense. What we can’t read we call gibberish.
There is no free will.
There are no variables.”

~Chuck Palahniuk, Survivor~

STANDING TOGETHER IN PRAYER

Many people would agree that prayer alone will not solve all of our problems, but to the water protectors at Standing Rock, direct action is considered sacred. Prayer can be action. To live one’s life as if it were a prayer is a very powerful way to engage in the world around us.

Indigenous spirituality acknowledges that all of life is interconnected through nature, knowing that humans have a responsibility to steward and protect the land. Standing Rock’s resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline has become globally symbolic of the struggle to protect our environment from the heartless exploitation of extraction industries that threaten water, land, air, and life itself.

For the first time in history, we are seeing a unified global movement to stand and act in solidarity with our indigenous relatives to protect the sacred.

This is your opportunity to participate in something truly inspired and hopeful, to pray with Standing Rock!

LOVE TWO 

“The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image.

Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.”
