Ricky Martin shocked the audience with an unexpected visit to Ellen, and talked to her about JetBlue’s Check in For Good contest, what it’s like being married, and being nominated for an Emmy for “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story“.

Plus, Ellen and her friends at Shutterfly also had a big surprise for Ricky so he can continue his efforts to help rebuild Puerto Rico.

One Year Ago Today …. “🇵🇷🌴 I posted This on Facebook …. After Hurricane María 🌴🇵🇷 …. “!!

ONE YEAR AGO TODAY 

~FACEBOOK MEMORIES~

🇵🇷💞🇵🇷 … ONE YEAR AGO TODAY … I POSTED THIS!! 🇵🇷💞🇵🇷

Hi! My name is Horty Rexach.

I am Puerto Rican and I grew up in an island (according to the president of the US Virgin Islands) in the middle of the ocean.

Surrounded by water. Big water.

A lot of water!

PTFl

Oh! … and we ARE American citizens, not by choice but rather by imposition.

We have been American citizens since 1917 because there was no other option.
My people have served in the might U.S. of A. military forces since 1917.

Yep, citizenship was imposed in the beginning of World War One. 

1917

We speak both English and Spanish.

The Puerto Rican people receive $22.5 million dollars in social help as well as subsidies from the American government.

However, we produce around $77 million dollars toward the economy of the mighty U.S. of A.

PRDEal

Why do we have two last names?

No Puerto Rican woman loses her last name when she marries because we don’t want to forget our very own mothers.

We are an archipelago (because we are not only a small island – we have Culebra, Vieques, Isla de Mona and several others).

The geography of Puerto Rico consists of an archipelago located between the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, east of the Dominican Republic and west of the Virgin Islands.

The main island of Puerto Rico is the smallest and most eastern of the Greater Antilles.

Our small archipielago, surrounded by big water, provides more members to the military forces per capita than ANY other state of the Union!!

Our Island has produced astronauts, NASA engineers, scientists, a Judge in the US Supreme Court, a recipient of a Medal of Honor, 5 Miss Universe crowns, the Borinqueneers (65th Infantry Division – google this one), Oscar and Grammy recipients, athletes, actors of world fame and many more distinguished citizens who call our beautiful Island HOME.

We are a beautiful and interesting mix of Spanish (European), African and Taíno blood. This mix gives us an incredible drive to survive.

Nothing Breaks our Boricua Spirit

NOTHING!!

We do not fit in any BOX. 

Biologist says Puerto Rican women possess the ideal genotype of the ‘Perfect‘ human via DNA ancestry.

It is a fact that this genetic composition represents the human race because of its wide heritage of races.
#PuertoRicoStrong … 🇵🇷 … ¡Weeepa!

I am Puerto Rican and I’m damn proud of it!!

Puerto Ricans Don’t Live in Another Country …. “🇵🇷 We Live in America and We Vote 🇵🇷 …. “!!

WE LIVE IN AMERICA

~POST HURRICANE MARIA~

As of today, midterm elections in the USA are 17 days off.

Many Puerto Ricans moved to the mainland after Hurricane María devastated the island.

Guess what?

As American citizens, Puerto Ricans have the right to vote in elections in the mainland.

I’m sure many won’t forget about the weak response to the devastation.

I, for one, can’t get the image of Drumpf throwing paper towels to those gathered the see him, expecting … what?

I vote!

I will never forget, I will never forgive!

BORICUA SPIRIT

PROUD PUERTO RICAN

I just came back to Florida after spending a week in my country, Puerto Rico.

A bit more after one year post Hurricane María, this is what you still see.

The resilience of the Puerto Rican people, their spirit and the happiness in spite of adversity is are forces to be reckoned with.

My people are strong, my country is still struggling yet their strength is formidable. 

I’m very proud to be Puerto Rican!
