MONICA PUIG DOES IT

I have watched Olympics games all my life.

I felt emotions as athletes achieved their dream of receiving the coveted Olympic medals, particularly the Gold one.

I remember how it felt to see their emotions, their tears as their country’s flag and their country’s anthem was played.

It always gave me chills and tears came to my eyes.

This time is so very much special.

This time it’s a Puerto Rican, Monica Puig.

It was incredible to see her when she realized what she had accomplished.

Her emotions were contagious.

Tears, chills and pride …

… as the Puerto Rican flag came up and the national anthem was played.

Never before in my lifetime.

Thank you, Monica, for this gift you have given all Puerto Ricans.

You are our pride and joy!

Monica Puig of Puerto Rico, the 34th-ranked tennis player in the world, stunned world no. 2 Angelique Kerber of Germany in the Olympic gold medal match in Rio on Saturday, pulling out a history-making win in three tough sets, 6-4, 4-6, 6-1.

As soon as she won the final point, Puig dropped her racket and mouthed the words, “Oh my God.”

By making her surprising run to the finals in Rio, Puig was assured of becoming the first woman to win an Olympic medal representing Puerto Rico. Now, she’s the first person ever to win gold for the island.

Tennis player Monica Puig wins Puerto Rico’s first-ever Olympics gold medal
Toaa soundtrack of “Si se puede!” from the stands, Monica Puig won Puerto Rico’s first gold medal in any sport in Olympic history, upsetting Angelique Kerber of Germany 6-4, 4-6, 6-1 in the women’s tennis singles final Saturday at the Rio de Janeiro Games.

Yes, she can. And, yes, she did.

Puig is also the first woman representing Puerto Rico to earn a medal of any color at an Olympics, and when she finished a tense closing game — saving six break points and converting her fourth match point — she dropped her racket and went over to collect a flag she paraded across the court.

NEWEST AFRO-LATINA SUPERHERO

La Borinqueña

La Borinqueña shows solidarity with the horrible events of June 12, 2016

This was the day that 49 members of the LGBT community in Orlando lost their lives at the hands of a shooter at Pulse.

An American security guard, killed 49 people and wounded 53 others inside Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, United States.

Pulse was hosting Latin Night and most of the victims were Hispanic.

It was both the deadliest mass shooting by a single gunman and the deadliest incident of violence against LGBT people in U.S. history, as well as the deadliest terrorist attack in the U.S. since the September 11 attacks in 2001.

It was also considered a hate crime.

The art of collaboration was instilled in Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez at an early age, when making the classic Latin American dish pasteles with his grandmother.

“No Puerto Rican can think of their heritage and the island from which it comes from and not start thinking about the current financial crisis plaguing Puerto Rico,”

Miranda-Rodriguez said.

The comics creator decided that his hero wasn’t going to be a crimefighter per se, but instead a symbol of Puerto Rico who could shine a light on issues that Miranda-Rodriguez felt should be on the minds of all Puerto Ricans.

Thus, La Borinqueña was born.

Inspired by the Puerto Rican national anthem of the same name, the superhero La Borinqueña – a woman named Marisol Rios De La Luz, wearing a costume inspired by the Puerto Rican flag is the newest super hero.
