Something to Think About …. “🤔 TEARS: Can’t Find Words to Describe Pain 🤔 …. “!!


Tears

~~October 30, 2018~~ 

HARROWING TIMES

~IN SO MANY WAYS~

The norms, the standards, the beliefs, the expectations, the behavior, the basic goodness I grew up with; the values instilled in me by my parents, my teachers, my role models, my guides are being shaken to the core.

I feel the ground shaking under my feet. I’m losing my moorings. I’m questioning what is happening around me.

Evil things are happening and there’s no check on them.

Seems evil is winning a ferocious battle and I was taught that good would always prevail.

Will it?

When I have no words, tears come to my eyes and express that pain.

Joaquín Oliver …. “🌻🌻 One of the Parkland Mass Shooting Victims …. Never Forgotten …. #GuacIsBack 🌻🌻 …. “!!


~~October 25, 2018~~ 

JOAQUIN OLIVER

CHANGE THE REF

I can barely begin to imagine how these parents feel after the loss of their son in a school shooting in Parkland, Florida more than one year ago.

Manuel Oliver, Joaquín’s father, has put all forth all his effort to keep his son’s memory alive and to advocate for gun reform.

Take a look!!

Gun reform organization Change The Ref is raising awareness about 3D-printed guns with 3D printing technology of its own – a 3D-printed sculpture the group is calling “the first 3D activist” in a campaign created in collaboration with the agency Alma.

The sculpture is modeled after Joaquín Oliver, Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooting victim and son of Change The Ref founders Manuel and Patricia Oliver.

Entitled “Guac is Back,” the campaign is centered around a 3D sculpture of Joaquín holding a bouquet of flowers, in tribute to the Valentine’s Day gift for his girlfriend he was holding when he died.

The statue of Joaquín is wearing a pin which, when scanned with a smartphone, directs viewers to a website collecting signatures for a petition demanding action against 3D-printed guns and encourages visitors to register to vote.

An emotional video features Manuel Oliver explaining that his family fled gun violence in Venezuela to settle in the U.S. and that Joaquin himself was an activist.

Hallelujah

YET ANOTHER ‘HALLELUJAH’ COVER

CHILL FACTOR

Music for the Soul

As I’ve said before, for some unknown reason, covers of this song keep ‘popping up’.

My tattoo artist, Stacy, showed this cover to me three days ago.

This song soothes my raw feelings.

It calms me, it centers me.

In the days after another mass shooting in Florida, this song comes to mind.

This song has attained a new meaning in my personal musical library.

It reminds me of so much …

Jeffrey Scott Buckley (November 17, 1966 – May 29, 1997), raised as Scott Moorhead, was an American singer-songwriter and guitarist. After a decade as a session guitarist in Los Angeles, Buckley amassed a following in the early 1990’s by playing cover songs at venues in Manhattan’s East Village, such as Sin-é, gradually focusing more on his own material.

In 2004, Rolling Stone Magazine listed him at number 39 on their list of greatest singers of all time. In 1997, Buckley moved to Memphis, Tennessee, to resume work on the album, to be titled My Sweetheart the Drunk, recording many four-track demos while also playing weekly solo shows at a local venue.

On May 29, 1997, while awaiting the arrival of his band from New York, he drowned during a spontaneous evening swim, fully clothed, in the Mississippi River when he was caught in the wake of a passing boat; his body was found on June 4.

Jeff Buckley

Well I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
Well it goes like this:
The fourth, the fifth, the minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Well your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya
She tied you to her kitchen chair
And she broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah …

Composite Photo …. “🇵🇷 Honoring my country, Puerto Rico 🇵🇷 …. ‘Proud Boricua Woman’ …. “!!

HONORING PUERTO RICO

Some of you may know, others not.

I am a fan of tattoos, having a few of them myself.

I’m also Puerto Rican, born and raised, living in the mainland.

Since September 20, 2017, when Hurricane María battered and almost flattened my country, my personal feelings have come to the surface.

My heart and soul ache for Puerto Rico.

Yesterday, I visited my tattoo artist.

I had an idea in my mind but Stacy showed me her idea and this is what she came up with.

I instantly fell in love with this image.

This is a proud Boricua woman, holding her head up high, ready to hold her stand and give the good fight. This happens in Puerto Rico every minute of every day.

The fortitude of the Puerto Rican woman has been tested during the trying times since the hurricane. 

There are still some details and colors to be added to the artwork.

I wanted to share this with you today.

 More will follow when completed.

Tencha, you rock!

That looks like a Puerto Rican statue of liberty on steroids.

💟 💟 💟

Comes to mind the last part of “En La Brecha“, de José de Diego.

Jeannette P.

My Facebook friend saw the image and commented as noted above.

I asked her about “En La Brecha” and here it is.

Jose

~En La Brecha~
Poema

José de Diego
¡Ah desgraciado si el dolor te abate,
si el cansancio tus miembros entumece!
Haz como el árbol seco: reverdece
y como el germen enterrado: late.

Resurge, alienta, grita, anda, combate,
vibra, ondula, retruena, resplandece …
Haz como el río con la lluvia: ¡Crece!
Y como el mar contra la roca: ¡Bate!

De la tormenta al iracundo empuje,
no has de balar, como el cordero triste,
sino rugir, como la fiera ruge.

¡Levántate!, ¡Revuélvete!, ¡Resiste!
Haz como el toro acorralado: ¡Muge!
O como el toro que no muge: ¡Embiste!

Vicente Fox is Running for President of the United States ….”😂 Facetious and Simply Amazing …. Humor Takes the Day 😂 …. “!!

HUMOR WILL ALWAYS MAKE THE DAY

The United States just elected an outsider president, and now Vicente Fox is hoping it will elect a Mexican

As you know, I’m in Florida waiting for Hurricane Irma to arrive. I have to post this before I lose power.

And … this video cheered me up for the time being. 

Hope you enjoy it too!!

In a five-minute video statement shellacking Drumpf with profanity and mariachis belting out his “Vicente for Presidente” campaign song.

“Donald, every time I make fun of you, which I do a lot, people say, ‘Why can’t you be our president?’ ” said Fox, who emerged last year from a sleepy post-presidency on his ranch in central Mexico to become an Internet sensation as one of Drumpf’s most consistent and brutal comedic critics.

“America, I feel your pain. We all do. And that is why today I am proud to announce my candidacy for president of the United States,” said Fox, who pulled on a Drumpf-style red campaign cap that read:

“Always ask before grabbing a pussy.”

The video says it all!

Keith Olbermann, #77 …. “How low can you go? …. This is How Low Drumpf’s Apologists Will Stoop …. “!! 


~~May 23, 2017~~ 

HOW LOW CAN THEY GO?

“The kind of man who wants the government to adopt and enforce his ideas is always the kind of man whose ideas are idiotic.”

~H.L. Mencken, Minority Report~

http://www.goodreads.com

Seth Conrad Rich (January 3, 1989 – July 10, 2016) was a 27-year-old employee of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) who was fatally shot in the Bloomingdale neighborhood of Washington, D.C

The crime was used as the pretext for right-wing conspiracy theories, which have been debunked by law enforcement agencies in their official statements about the case. These theories falsely stated that there is credible evidence Rich was the source of the 2016 Democratic National Committee email leak.

According to U.S. intelligence assessments, Russian intelligence services are most likely responsible for the hacking and the leak.

~Wikipedia~

I feel this is important information about what is happening in the Republican Administration lead by Drumpf and what we need to be aware of.

Keith Olbermann series called “The Resistance” continues.

He has posted installment #77.

The video speaks for itself.

If this resonates with you, good.

If it doesn’t, just scroll away to the next blog.

Thank you!

~What is the goal of A Day Without a Woman?~
The goal is to highlight the economic power and significance that women have in the US and global economies, while calling attention to the economic injustices women and gender nonconforming people continue to face.

 We play an indispensable role in the daily functions of life in all of society, through paid & unpaid, seen & unseen labor.  

We must have the power to control our bodies and be free from gender norms, expectations and stereotypes.

We must free ourselves and our society from the constant awarding of power, agency and resources disproportionately to masculinity, to the exclusion of others.

We must end the hiring discrimination that women, particularly mothers, women of color, women with disabilities, Indigenous women, lesbian, queer and trans women still face each day in our nation.  

We believe that creating workforce opportunities that reduce discrimination against women and mothers allow economies to thrive. Nations and industries that support and invest in care-giving and basic workplace protections – including benefits like paid family leave, access to affordable childcare, sick days, healthcare, fair pay, vacation time, and healthy work environments – have shown growth and increased capacity.

We believe in Gender Justice and the protection of the human rights of gay, lesbian, bi, queer, trans, Two-Spirit and gender nonconforming people.

We believe in an economy powered by transparency, accountability, security and equity.

We believe that all workers must have the right to organize and fight for a living minimum wage, and that unions and other labor associations are critical to a healthy and thriving economy for all. Undocumented and migrant, farm workers and domestic workers must be included in our labor protections, and we stand in full solidarity with the sex workers’ rights movement. We recognize that exploitation for sex and labor in all forms is a violation of human rights.
