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.

IT LOOKS LIKE THEY NUKED US

Ricky is a proud Puerto Rican

He has always been known for his love of the Island.

After the damaging effects and aftermath of Hurricane María, he has embarked on a mission to help the people of his Island.

He’s gone back to Puerto Rico and distributed tons of bare necessities,

He’s going back this Sunday, October 8, with 120 tons of supplies to deliver.

Every little bit helps!

‘It Looks Like They Nuked Us’

Ricky Martin returned to Ellen Friday to discuss his recent trip to Puerto Rico, where the singer distributed basic necessities to those affected by Hurricane Maria.

“I don’t wanna be pessimistic, I just want to be realistic: The images don’t do justice to what really happened in Puerto Rico.

It looks like they nuked us,” Martin said. “Regardless of what people say, right now Puerto Rico is still struggling, and I don’t see light at the tunnel.”

Martin added that he was returning to the island on Sunday with a FedEx plane filled with basic necessities for those still recovering from Hurricane Maria. Martin also thanked Ellen viewers for assisting in his YouCaring relief efforts, which saw its donations increase from $200,000 to $1.8 million following his last appearance on the show.

Dear friends,

Puerto Rico has been devastated by Hurricane Maria, and the island desperately need us. This is a humanitarian crisis affecting 3.5 million people. The power grid is destroyed, food and water are in short supply and we all need to work together now. For this reason, I created this page to collect funds and my donation of $100,000 is already in, as well as the generous donations from the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation and many others.

The Ricky Martin Foundation team on the ground is already working with the local government, local volunteers.

ROOTS OF PREJUCIDE

DRUMPF HATES PUERTO RICANS BECAUSE THEY TOOK OVER NEW YORK

Many of you know that Puerto Rico is my country.

I was born and raised there. I didn’t move to the U.S. of A. until 1999.

I left the Island because I managed to transfer to Jacksonville to continue to work with the federal government.

Both my Mom and Dad met in New York City and married there in the early 1930’s.

When I told my Dad about my transfer to Florida, he was happy for me and concerned, at the same time. He told me that prejudice was rampart and everywhere. I didn’t get his concern. Why should I be worried? I’m an American citizen.

Puerto Rico is part of the United States. 

After watching this video, my Dad’s concerns came back to me. Here is part of the explanation. I assume that while in New York City, during the 1930’s, he was a recipient of it. I recall that Puerto Ricans were known as ‘spics‘ … a derogatory name stemming from the fact that Boricuas pronounced ‘speak’ as ‘spic’.

“I don’t ‘spic’ English!”

That was it.

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 #131.
The video speaks for itself.
If this resonates with you, good.
If it doesn’t, just scroll away to the next blog.

WE WILL NEVER FORGET

PUERTO RICANS HAVE A GOOD MEMORY

I’m not sure what is more hurtful, disrespectful, demeaning, or racist

BLine

1. Ignoring the devastation in PR for six days while Tweeting about NFL players.
2. Responding to the hurricane by reminding Puerto Rico that the debt needs to be paid no matter what.
3. Waiving temporarily a law (Jones Act) that limits trade in PR and results in excessive costs for Puerto Ricans only for 10 days.
4. Claiming that Puerto Ricans want everything done for them.
5. Playing golf while insulting the leadership of Puerto Rico.
6. Delaying a request for aid until possibly mid-October.
7. Being condescending by telling Puerto Ricans that a member of his team, “works on something called a budget.”
8. Claiming Katrina as a “real tragedy” thus implying that PR’s condition isn’t.
9. Blaming Puerto Ricans for throwing “their” budget off for the money used in relief efforts.
10. Worrying Puerto Ricans with the burden that the relief aid will have to be repaid.
11. Boasting shamelessly about a “very good” response that has been deemed by his own military personnel as slow and insufficient.
12. Throwing paper towels at people in need as if he were throwing t-shirts at a concert.

BLineimg_2925-2BLine

I know that my fellow Puerto Ricans and I are outraged, but this should be a feeling shared not only by every American citizen but by every human that has an ounce of human compassion.

This goes beyond political affiliations.

This is at the core of being a decent human being.

BLine

There’s only a few things that are certain.
1. Puerto Rico will recover.
2. Many do care about PR.
3. Puerto Ricans have grit.
4. The world is watching.
5. We won’t forget.

From a dear friend Ronnie G.

IN A PUERTO RICO STATE OF MIND

My country is always on my mind. Y

ou can take a Puerto Rican out of the Island but you can’t take the Island out of a Puerto Rican.

This is a view of one of the old Spanish forts in the Old San Juan are.

The sun, the ocean, the breeze, the sky, the clouds.

That’s how strong being Puerto Rican is.

REFERENDUM WAS CONDUCTED

I don’t live in Puerto Rico anymore. I was born and raised there.

Politics is a national sport.

A referendum was held on June 11, 2017.

It was a ruse, a futile exercise and a total waste of money.

Get more information below and watch a short video which presents in almost a nutshell the reality of Puerto Rico, my country

Referendum on the political status of Puerto Rico held in Puerto Rico on June 11, 2017

The referendum had three options: becoming a state of the United States, independence/free association, or maintaining the current territorial status.

Those who voted overwhelmingly chose statehood by 97%; turnout, however, was 23%, a historically low figure.

(recalculating and using additional numbers, that number decreased to 18% turnout)

This figure is attributed to a boycott led by the pro-status quo PPD party.

~WIKIPEDIA~

GoldSwirlAJ+GoldSwirl

Puerto Rico’s governor, Ricardo Roselló, pushed ahead with his top campaign promise of trying to convert the US territory into a state, holding a Sunday referendum to let voters send a message to Congress.

His party has launched an aggressive ad campaign urging people to “demand respect” with their vote – to choose statehood so the island can obtain equal treatment from the federal government that some say would ease a 10-year economic recession that has spurred nearly half a million Puerto Ricans to flee to the U.S. mainland.

AMID ECONOMIC CRISIS, PUERTO RICO PREPARES TO VOTE ON STATEHOOD

Amid economic crisis, Puerto Rico prepares to vote on statehood

GoldSwirl

~Miami Herald~

“Sunday’s referendum is not binding.

It was more an exercise of electoral temperature-taking than a mandate to convert the island into an American state.”

Statehood should not be the equivalent of throwing a drowning swimmer a lifesaver.

Puerto Rico must ably address its economic distress and pursue statehood by assuring Congress and the rest of United States that it would be a strong and capable addition, not a chronically needy one.”

~~Should Puerto Rico Become The 51st State?~~

~~Published on Jun 4, 2017~~

There are 3.5 million US citizens currently facing one of the worst financial crises in this country – and they’re all in Puerto Rico.

The US government has an almost 120-year-long relationship with Puerto Rico – which is a territory, not the 51st state. But what has that relationship looked like? Why is Puerto Rico still a territory, and what do Puerto Ricans, themselves, want for their future? Explore these questions – and some others – with Sana Saeed, who starts the story at the very beginning: May 12, 1898.

While many may think this image has been altered, it was not.

This is an actual photo taken on October 25, 1977 when a group of unarmed Puerto Rican activists gathered to protest demanding the release of Puerto Rican Nationalist prisoners.

This was an act of symbolism illustrating their hopes of freedom and independence in putting an end to the discrimination that Puerto Ricans were enduring.

On November 5, 2000, Puerto Rican activist, Alberto de Jesús Mercado, better known as Tito Kayak, along with five other protesters went to the top of the Statue of Liberty in New York City where he bravely placed the Puerto Rican flag on the statue’s crown.

On June 13, 2005, Kayak was arrested at the United Nations headquarters in New York City for attempting to switch the United Nations banner with the Puerto Rican flag, while the United Nations Special Committee met to discuss the political state of the island.

DRESSED IN GOLD

Today, Puerto Rico’s flag, also known as the “monoestrellada” (only one star) is dressed in gold.

By this morning, Puerto Rico is known worldwide.

If you don’t know, the Puerto Rican flag is dressed in gold because for the first time ever, Puerto Rico has won a its first gold medal in any Olympic game.

Puig’s victory is also a first

The first Olympic gold medal ever won by a Puerto Rican athlete, while representing Puerto Rico.

Thanks to Monica Puig, who won the gold medal in this summer’s Rio’s Olympic games, Puerto Rico is proud to have this honor.

Puerto Rico is proud of Monica Puig.

The “little island” in the Caribben, the possesion/colony of the USA, which is going through its toughest financial/political crisis, stands in pride.

We stand on our own!

“Si Se Puede!”

Yes, we can!

Thank you, Monica!

PUERTO RICAN LOVE

My Country is My Love

My country is my love,
To whom I’ve given my heart.
To you I sing, my greatest happiness,
My flowering Estonia!
Your pain boils in my heart,
Your pride and joy makes me happy,
My country, my country!

My country is my love,
I shall never leave her,
Even if I must die hundred deaths
Because of for her!
Does the foreign envy slander,
You still live in my heart,
My country, my country!

My country is my love,
And I want to rest,
To lay down into your arms,
My sacred Estonia!
Your birds will sing sleep to me,
flowers will bloom from my ashes,
My country, my country!
