THREE MONTHS AGO TODAY

It’s been three long months.

It seems like an eternity ago.

Tributes continue to surface.

Sia has released a song Sia featuring Kendrick Lamar.

It’s powerful.

I’m sharing it today, on the 3rd month after the Orlando tragedy.

Hoping this event doesn’t get lost amid all the current events our society is continually going through.

On June 12, 2016, a heartless man, killed 49 people and wounded 53 others in a terrorist attack/hate crime inside Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, United States.

He was shot and killed by Orlando Police Department (OPD) officers after a three-hour standoff. Pulse was hosting Latin Night and most of the victims were Latino.

It was the deadliest mass shooting by a single shooter, the deadliest incident of violence against LGBT people in United States history, and the deadliest terrorist attack in the United States since the September 11 attacks in 2001.

The Greatestis a song by Sia featuring Kendrick Lamar

The single was released on 6 September 2016 through Monkey Puzzle Records and RCA Records as the lead single from her upcoming eighth studio album, We Are Your Children. The song was written by Sia alongside Greg Kurstin, who produced the song with AJ Santos also known as Yektro.

The video for the single features dancer Maddie Ziegler, and was directed by Daniel Askill for Radical Media.

sia

Jessica Goodman from Entertainment Weekly found the chorus “massive and catchy.” Once the critics had picked up on the song’s connection with the 2016 Orlando nightclub shooting, Spencer Kornhaber of The Atlantic wrote:

Making pop about a specific tragedy is necessarily a tricky job. So it’s no crime that some of the other mainstream original songs memorializing Orlando have been as rote as issue-oriented singles are often stereotyped as being. But “The Greatest” is very potent, a work of art, not charity.There’s no break here from the rest of Sia’s catalogue about pain and release in everyday life: You hear a sad voice wailing about bucking up, very stark emotional peaks and valleys, and a danceable backing of explosive drums, toy-box melodies, and reggae grooves.

Sia and Greg Kurstin may have written the song even before the massacre. But in the context of Orlando, the possible platitude of the chorus becomes gutting:

“I’m free to be the greatest/I’m alive.”

She’s pepping the listener up, but she’s also defining the value of life, marking the human potential that’s been lost.

Thoughts for today, #392 …. “Can bury us …. we are seeds”!!

~~August 13, 2016~~ 

CAN’T BURY US

Two months, after 49 souls were forcibly removed from this Earth, I find this graphic.

It brought to mind, the many times that humans in the LGBT community have been silenced.

How many have given their lives to bullying, violence, abuse, discrimination, murder?

It’s been proven over and over again, those voices may be silenced.

Yet, many more come out and take their place.

One goes away, another one takes its place.

Like seed, we can’t be buried.

From the first hours after the news of the Orlando massacre broke, in which a shooter killed 49 people and injured 53 others in an act of hatred of LGBTQ people, it was clear that most of the men and women who died that day were Latin Americans.

But it wouldn’t be for several more hours, after the majority of the victim’s names were confirmed, that it would become clear that most of the Latinas and Latinos were Puerto Rican …

WE REMEMBER

I woke up early this morning.

Two months ago, around this time,  I learned about the senseless killing of members of the LGBT community in Orlando.

We all know by now that they were at Pulse, a local gay club, celebrating Latin night.

Since that day, many other ugly/sad things have happened.

More details have come out, autopsy results are available.

The killer shot victims more than 200 times in 2o minutes.

The actions of the local and, maybe federal authorities, are under scrutiny.

I wonder why it took that long to go into the club and stop this maniac.

For 49 families their lives will never be the same.

My heart goes out to all of those who have been effected by the killings at Pulse in Orlando, Florida.

The Orlando shooting was a tragic event which touched the hearts of many.

Innocent humans were killed at the whim of a thoughtless person.

It’s been a month and several days since the incident.

Many people have been moved and felt the need to render tribute to those lost on that day.

This is one long waited tribute since Jennifer López and Lin-Manuel Miranda announced their collaboration.

Both of them have Puerto Rican heritage.

The majority of the victims were from Puerto Rico.

Jennifer Lopez and Lin-Manuel Miranda Deliver Emotional Performance of ‘Love Makes the World Go Round’ on The Tonight Show

Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jennifer Lopez are spreading a simple message: love makes the world go around.

The two appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday and delivered an emotional performance of their new song “Love Makes The World Go Round.”

The performance was a more intimate rendition than their first live performance of the collaboration on the Today show earlier this week.

Lopez, 46, opened the performance wearing a long cape over her outfit that spanned several feet and resembled stained glass windows of a church.

I finally got it back today.

I’ve missed several important events and this is one of them.

I’m trying to catch up.

On June 12, 2016, we woke up to the terrible news of a mass shooting in a local gay club: PULSE.

This started around 2am this morning. Lives have been lost, our community is in pain. Investigation still ongoing …. local police, FBI and other Federal Agents.

Sad days continued in this country.

“It was both the deadliest mass shooting by a single shooter 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.”

Forty nine people died in the incident and another 53 were injured.

UNVEILING OF LGBT MONUMENT

BY: JEREMY WILLIAMS

JULY 5, 2016

Puerto Rico has its first LGBT monument in the island’s history, which now is also a memorial to the victims of the Pulse shooting.

The monument is seven concrete pillars, each covered in colorful mosaics, and sits at the entrance of Sixto Escobar Stadium in San Juan’s Third Millennium Park, according to Noticel, a Puerto Rican publication.

The monument cost an estimated $9,000, funded by city taxpayers, Noticel reports.

It was designed by Alberto de la Cruz.

A section of the monument lists the names of the 49 people who lost their lives at the Pulse shooting, highlighting the names of the 23 Puerto Rican victims.

Next to the names, written in Spanish, is the quote,

“This tribute to life strengthens our commitment to fight hate – the product of homophobia – with love and respect.

Our slogan resounds in all our hearts:

Love is love, is love, is love …

The monument’s dedication took place almost exactly one year after a federal judge in Puerto Rico first ruled in favor of marriage equality.

Although an anti-equality judge in Puerto Rico tried to halt that ruling, a federal appeals court determined in April that the U.S. Supreme Court’s June 2015 decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, which brought marriage equality to all 50 states, was also binding in Puerto Rico, an unincorporated territory of the United States.

“We celebrate life,” said San Juan mayor Carmen Yulín at the monument’s inauguration. “We must work together to eradicate discrimination and homophobia. We must raise our voice for justice and equality of every human being.

We must aspire to a country where everyone is equal and not be judged by how we love.”

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.

“As it appears in … full read/full credit”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2016_Orlando_nightclub_shooting

RBLine

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.
