TOUCHING HURRICANE RELIEF SONG

Lin-Manuel Miranda Assembled An Epic Cast 

This is what makes Puerto Ricans Puerto Ricans.

The undying spirit against adversity. My heart and soul have been aching since Hurricane María battered my country. The days after have been sadder as images come out of the utter devastation of a beautiful Caribbean Island.

The Puerto Rican spirit is battered but not broken after Maria.

“I would much rather be writing a song than jumping up and down and making noise.” Miranda said. He continued,

“And if the government’s response were commensurate with the people’s spirit and compassion we’d be on the road to recovery and ending this crisis so much faster.”

CLARE PALO

Lin-Manuel Miranda, the genius behind the musical “Hamilton,” has teamed up with Latin singers to create a touching song for Hurricane relief in Puerto Rico.

The Tony Award winner, 37, created “Almost Like Praying” in response to the severe need to relief in Puerto Rico, after islanders were left without running water, generators, food or electricity.

Miranda assembled an all-star cast of artists, including Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, Camila Cabello, Gloria Estefan, Rita Moreno, among others.

Proceeds of the track titled, “Almost Like Praying,” will go to the Hispanic Federation’s Hurricane Relief Fund, which is also working with New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio to help bring supplies to Puerto Rico.

The municipalities of Puerto Rico number seventy-eight incorporated towns and cities. Each municipality is led by a mayor and divided into barrios, though the latter are not vested with any political authority.

Every municipality is governed by the Autonomous Municipalities Act of 1991 which establishes that every municipality must have a strong mayor with a municipal legislature.

Every town in Puerto Rico is mentioned in this song.

The mastery of combining these names with the undertone of West Side Story’s María isn’t lost on any Puerto Rican.

This is very close to my heart.

Brings a tear to my eyes!

These are deep words which ring so true and evoke strong emotions.

Visit HAWAI’I …. “🇺🇸 Honest Government Advertisement … This is for Real 🇺🇸 …. “!

AMERICA’S LEAST KNOWN MILITARY OCCUPATION

I’ve been re-discovering the history of my country, Puerto Rico. As I’m going through that process, I’ve thought about other countries which could have experienced similar events as a result of the endless desire of the United States to be a global empire.

My gut was correct!

One of the countries whose history I want to review and research is Hawaii. I found this interesting video that explains concisely some of the information that I’ve been searching for.

Always remember, there’s truth in yest! 

I worked on the Puerto Rico video; here’s the Hawaii one mentioned by the creators.

My heart bleeds for these countries!

~Visit Hawai’i – Honest Government Ad~

Aloha!

I had the magical opportunity to visit Hawai’i at the start of the month and talk with local and native Hawaiians.

They all said the biggest problem they face is the fact that so few people are aware of the history of ongoing US military occupation.

So on my return to Australia, I decided to make a video about it.

MAY DAY

~April showers bring May flowers ~
🌺 🌸🌼🌸🌺🌼🌸🌺🌼🌸🌼🌺

May Day is a public holiday usually celebrated on May 1.

It is an ancient northern hemisphere spring festival.

What is May Day?
Depending on where you are, it’s either a seasonal celebration or a day to celebrate workers’ rights, or maybe a little bit of both.

Think of the latter use as a Labor Day, if you will, for the rest of the world.
