AFTER EVERY REVOLUTIONARY EVENT

“Decía que detrás de cada evento revolucionario, hay traición, muerte y desengaño, pero que aún así vale la pena morir por un sueño, por cualquier utopía de justicia y paz.”

‘”FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS”

PUERTO RICO’S CRISIS

There’s still a crisis in Puerto Rico and we can’t forget that.

It has become the second longest blackout ever.

Here’s a condensed version of Puerto Rico’s history by itself, with Spain and with he United States.

This video also takes us back to September 6, 2017, when Hurricane María destroyed Puerto Rico as we knew it.

Hurricane season is already under way.

Hurricane Beryl has formed and it’s too close for comfort.

Let the video speak for itself.

DON PEDRO ALBIZU CAMPOS …. “🇵🇷 On the American Flag 🇵🇷 …. “!!


RedLineB

Pedro Albizu Campos (September 12, 1891 – April 21, 1965) was a Puerto Rican attorney and politician, and the leading figure in the Puerto Rican independence movement. Gifted in languages, he spoke six. He graduated from Harvard Law School with the highest grade point average in his law class, an achievement that earned him the right to give the valedictorian speech at his graduation ceremony.

However, animus towards his mixed racial heritage would lead to his professors delaying two of his final exams in order to keep Albizu Campos from graduating on time. During his time at Harvard University he became involved in the Irish struggle for independence.

Albizu Campos was the president and spokesperson of the Puerto Rican Nationalist Party from 1930 until his death in 1965. Because of his oratorical skill, he was hailed as ‘El Maestro‘ (The Teacher).

He was imprisoned twenty-six years for attempting to overthrow the United States government in Puerto Rico.

POWER TO THE PEOPLE

Puerto Rico is a colony of the mighty, imperialistic US of A.

 The USA invaded the Island in 1898. It took over from the free authority of the people to impose their values and orders.

(Sounds familiar?)

In the process it used, abuse, stole, imposed views, subjugated individuals, incarcerated many and much more on the people of Puerto Rico.

The response generated after Hurricane María battered the Island shows the ‘heart‘ of the American governance.

It’s time for Puerto Rico to be on its own feet. It can’t be done overnight. It has to be a gradual process.

No one will come to save the Island.

The people will have to rise!

Puerto Rico …. “🇵🇷 Here We Come …. after Hurricane María 🇵🇷 …. Part One …. “!!


~~June 5, 2018~~ 

TRAVELING TO MY COUNTRY

~Both of us were born in Puerto Rico~

Life throws plenty curve balls and both of us ended up living in Florida. We have made it an event and traveled to Puerto Rico at least once a year.

Last year’s trip was abruptly interrupted by Hurricane María. Almost 9 months went by before we were able to go back home.

Initially, we wanted to say away from the issues on the Island mostly to avoid interrupting rescue efforts. We didn’t want to be in the way of people’s needs, first responders, rescuers and workers.

There was no power (power hasn’t restored fully yet, as of this writing), the roads were impassable, communications were very limited. Rather than be in the way, we waited until some degree of normalcy had been attained in the Island.

We embarked on our trip on May 18 and returned May 29, 2018.

This is the longest we have been away from the home base in Florida.

~This trip had a two-fold Purpose~

We wanted to go back and see what Hurricane María had done to our piece of paradise.

My high school was celebrating our 50th graduation anniversary and we had never met before!!

Off we went.

I would like to share some photos with you. I will do so in parts … for ease of posting and to separate the areas that we visited. I hope you enjoy them!

~We flew with JetBlue from Orlando to San Juan~

Once we arrived at the Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport, we had another leg to go. I knew that we were getting on a smaller plane … I called it a ‘kite’, ‘puddle jumper’.

An airport employee called it a ‘mosquito’.

I wasn’t expecting such a small plane!

Yet, here we were. The plane holds only 9 passengers. All the weight it taken into account. That includes your bags and every person’s who is on board.

O-M-G!! 

Then again, I realized I was concerned more than needed. The flight went surprisingly well in spite of the fact that there were plenty clouds and there was a rain spell locally.
