VOTE AGAINST GOP CONTROL

~WE CANNOT WAIT FOR ANYONE TO SAVE US~

Capt. Chesley Sullenberger

MAY DAY, MAY DAY, MAY DAY!

I was always impressed by this American human being.

I didn’t know much about him until the ‘miracle in the Hudson’ happened.

For sure, I watched the movie.

Yet, last night, as I watched  him on ‘The Last Word‘, I learned to admire, respect even more and totally agree with him.

His gravitas is impressive.

Take a look!

The pilot who orchestrated a dramatic plane landing in the Hudson River nearly 10 years ago encouraged Americans to vote in next week’s midterm elections in a Washington Post op-ed published Monday, October 29, writing that “we cannot wait for someone to save us.”
“The fabric of our nation is under attack, while shame – a timeless beacon of right and wrong – seems dead,” Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, whose “Miracle on the Hudson” landing in 2009 spared the lives of all 155 passengers aboard, writes.

“This is not the America I know and love.

We’re better than this.”

The op-ed comes toward the close of a wrenching political season marked by divisive language, conspiracy theories and race-baiting attacks, from Drumpf to local leaders.

Sul3

“We cannot wait for someone to save us.

We must do it ourselves.

This Election Day is a crucial opportunity to again demonstrate the best in each of us by doing our duty and voting for leaders who are committed to the values that will unite and protect us,” Sullenberger writes nearly a week before next week’s elections.

Following the 2009 landing, Sullenberger says that he realized his fame had given him “a greater voice.”

“I knew I could not walk away but had an obligation to use this bully pulpit for good and as an advocate for the safety of the traveling public,” he writes.

“I feel that I now have yet another mission, as a defender of our democracy.”

‘Día De Los Muertos’

~DAY OF THE DEAD~

The Day of the Dead (Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican heritage elsewhere.

The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey.

In 2008, the tradition was inscribed in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.

Dialysis Treatment in Vieques, Puerto Rico …. “🇵🇷 A 10-12 Hour Commute for Life-Saving Treatment …. HuffPost Reports 🇵🇷 …. “!!

DIALYSIS TREATMENT

~VIEQUES, PUERTO RICO~

This is a topic which is very dear and close to my heart.

As a retired physician, I fully understand the process, the need for treatment, the underlying medical conditions and the meaning of life-saving treatment.

On the other hand, my only brother died of complications of chronic renal failure several years ago. In the aftermath of Hurricane María, I often thought about him and how he would manage to receive this three times a week treatment when the electrical power situation and the hospital care was so lacking in my country.

One year after Hurricane María, Puerto Ricans living in Vieques, go through harrowing, uncomfortable, tiring, exhausting and dangerous ways to receive their treatment.

This video explains their situation.

An American possession with this ‘quality of care’?

Laughable … not!!

In medicine, dialysis is the process of removing excess water, solutes, and toxins from the blood in people whose kidneys can no longer perform these functions naturally.

This is referred to as renal replacement therapy.

Dialysis Patients Are Still Trekking 12 Hours for Care After Hurricane María
Left without a hospital, some Puerto Ricans must travel by plane for lifesaving treatment

Hurricane María totaled Vieques’s hospital, which housed the island’s only dialysis clinic

That set off an ongoing crisis for patients with kidney failure who cannot survive without dialysis and for whom the thrice-weekly round trip to a dialysis center in Humacao on Puerto Rico’s main island, including treatment, takes at least 12 hours.

Something to Think About …. “🤔 TEARS: Can’t Find Words to Describe Pain 🤔 …. “!!


Tears

~~October 30, 2018~~ 

HARROWING TIMES

~IN SO MANY WAYS~

The norms, the standards, the beliefs, the expectations, the behavior, the basic goodness I grew up with; the values instilled in me by my parents, my teachers, my role models, my guides are being shaken to the core.

I feel the ground shaking under my feet. I’m losing my moorings. I’m questioning what is happening around me.

Evil things are happening and there’s no check on them.

Seems evil is winning a ferocious battle and I was taught that good would always prevail.

Will it?

When I have no words, tears come to my eyes and express that pain.

CRIKEY!

~IT’S THE IRWINS~

I always enjoyed Steve Irwin’s shows and antics.

Didn’t follow regularly but he left an impression. His untimely death was a huge loss to his young family and the conservation movement.

It’s amazing to see how his legacy lives on through the work of his loving wife, Terri and his two enthusiastic and motivated children,
Bindi and Robert.

Wishing them success!!

Terry Lee Nichols and I created “We Have Only Come To Dream“, music that tells the story of MIGRATION to the AMERICAS.

In the United States we are almost all Immigrants.

At our core, we are Inclusive, and we care for all people.

‘We Have Only Come to Dream’ is an epic soundtrack of the history of the Americas … this album takes the listener on an extraordinary journey through sound and time …

We Have Only Come to Dream grabs the listener from the opening chords and never lets go.

This is an album you don’t want to miss.

We Have Only Come To Dream is a stunning release from Terry Lee Nichols and Rebekah Eden … destined to receive awards this year for the music and production values that are A+ from start to finish …

I would expect this recording to be considered into the Library of Congress or the Smithsonian Institute at some point, and hopefully as soon as possible as it deserves inclusion into one of our American Institutions …

If there is one album to make sure you get this year it is We Have Only Come To Dream.

‘I’ll Never Love Again’ …. “💫 A Star is Born …. Bradley Cooper and Stephani Germanotta 💫 …. “!!


~~October 22, 2018~~ 

‘A STAR IS BORN’

~RELEASE OF I’LL NEVER LOVE AGAIN~

Both Bradley and Lady Gaga performed impeccably.

The movie ends with this song.

I don’t want to give  the end away but her ‘husband’ in the movie wrote this song for her, Ally.

Fully recommend it!

This song is simply incredible.

The story around it is worth watching the film.

~~Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper release ‘I’ll Never Love Again’ music video~~

I’ll Never Love Again” was one of the numbers they most wanted to keep in check until audiences had a chance to experience it in theaters.

The song appears in the last scene of the movie, and without giving too much away for those who have yet to see it, it is performed in two different interlocking settings, both by Cooper and Gaga together at a piano and by Gaga alone on stage. 

Cooper and Gaga famously sang all of their parts live during the making of the film, something Cooper insisted on, and “I’ll Never Love Again” is no exception.

‘A STAR IS BORN’

FINALLY

I went to the movies yesterday and saw this film.

I was an ardent fan of the 1976 version in which Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson played the lead roles.

I wasn’t disappointed with this current version.

Both Bradley and Lady Gaga performed impeccably. 

Fully recommend it!

This song is simply incredible. The story around it is worth watching the film.
