A Picture Says a Thousand Words …. “😥 This one, a cartoon, screams, #69 …. My Heart and Soul Ache for My Country 😥 …. “!!

Need I say more?

I was in Puerto Rico last week.

I returned on Tuesday, May 29, that was the day when I became aware of the results of this study.

I knew this was true even after the first few days after Hurricane María battered the Island.

I will never forget or forgive the current American administration or the current Puerto Rican administration for the totally inadequate response to this disaster.

The conditions back home aren’t adequate still.

Uncle Sam, there’s Puerto Rican blood on your hands. 

The mighty, imperialistic US of A doesn’t care about it’s colony.

The Puerto Rican government is as corrupt as the American one.

4,645 Puerto Ricans, (so far), paid the ultimate price!

RedLineBBorn and raised by underpaid public school teachers in Sanford, Fla., Andy Marlette graduated from the University of Florida and became staff editorial cartoonist at the Pensacola News Journal in 2007.

Marlette received a priceless editorial cartoon education while living with his uncle and Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Doug Marlette in Hillsborough, N.C. Doug’s tragic death in July of 2007 made evermore poignant the elder Marlette’s fierce and faithful devotion to the art form of editorial cartooning as a cornerstone of American free speech.

With this in mind, Andy works daily to learn and uphold the disciplines and values passed on to him by his late uncle. Andy’s editorial cartoons have become both hated and adored by daily readers.

Composite Photo Update, #3 …. 🇵🇷 Honoring my Country, Puerto Rico 🇵🇷 …. ‘Proud Boricua Woman’ …. “!!

HONORING PUERTO RICO

PERSONAL PHOTOGRAPH MADE WITH ‘LIVE COLLAGE’

“That looks like a Puerto Rican statue of liberty on steroids.”

(a friend told me)

Some of you may know, others not.

I am a fan of tattoos, having a few of them myself.

I’m also Puerto Rican, born and raised, living in the mainland.

Since September 20, 2017, when Hurricane María battered and almost flattened my country, my personal feelings have come to the surface.

My heart and soul ache for Puerto Rico.

It’s been a week today since I visited my tattoo artist for add ons, updates, coloring and completion.

Colors, shading, The ‘cemí’, the hibiscus flowers, the ‘Taíno coquí’ and the ‘Taíno sun‘ were completed.

The process is almost totally done.

Only minor details for the last sitting.

My tattoo artist, Barefoot Stacy, is amazing!

Here it is!

RedLineBSTatt

This is a proud Boricua woman, holding her head up high, ready to hold her stand and give the good fight.

This happens in Puerto Rico every minute of every day.

The fortitude of the Puerto Rican woman has been tested during the trying times since Hurricane María battered the Island on September 20, 2018, a bit beyond six months ago today.

I wanted to share another ‘almost complete’ result with you today.

 More will follow as it’s totally done.

PRINCE …. “One year ago today …. he crossed the ‘Purple Bridge’ …. “!!

ONE YEAR AGO TODAY

I can’t believe how fast time flies.

A year ago we received the news of Prince passing.

He was found in Paisley Park, lifeless.

Many theories were presented, many half truths, many rumors.

No matter the reason, a huge musical giant, an amazing musician, a masterful influence was gone.

He crossed his ‘Purple Bridge”.

And left his many fans behind!

From a Facebook Member, Josie Fletcher … had to share! 
Prince isn’t dead … he just hopped on his “Little Red Corvette” … with his “Raspberry Beret” … drove off through the “Purple Rain“, over “Graffiti Bridge” … under the “Cherry Moon“, partying like it’s “1999” … because this is what happens “When Doves Cry“!!
