JAMAL’S EMPTY CHAIR

~Jamal Khashoggi’s Daughters~

We promise his light will never fade

“his legacy will be preserved within us”

Noha Khashoggi and Razan Jamal Khashoggi are the daughters of Jamal Khashoggi

Jamal Khashoggi’s daughters write for The Post

After the events of Oct. 2, our family visited Dad’s home in Virginia.

The hardest part was seeing his empty chair. His absence was deafening. We could see him sitting there, glasses on his forehead, reading or typing away. As we looked at his belongings, we knew he had chosen to write so tirelessly in the hopes that when he did return to the kingdom, it might be a better place for him and all Saudis.

This is no eulogy, for that would confer a state of closure.

Rather, this is a promise that his light will never fade, that his legacy will be preserved within us. Baba said it best:

“Some depart to remain,” which rings true today. We feel blessed to have been raised with his moral compass, his respect for knowledge and truth, and his love.

Until we meet again in the next life.

PUERTO RICAN WOMEN

I’m a proud Boricua woman

My heritage comes from Taíno, Spanish and African roots.

All of which I’m very proud of.

Many came before me … and in 1950, I was born!

The recorded history of women in Puerto Rico can trace its roots back to the era of the Taíno, the indigenous people of the Caribbean, who inhabited the island that they called “Borikén” before the arrival of Spaniards. During the Spanish colonization the cultures and customs of the Taíno, Spanish, African and women from non-Hispanic European countries blended into what became the culture and customs of Puerto Rico.

In the early part of the 19th Century the women in Puerto Rico were Spanish subjects and had little individual rights. Those who belonged to the upper class of the Spanish ruling society had better educational opportunities then those who did not. However, there were many women who were already active participants in the labor movement and in the agricultural economy of the island.

After Puerto Rico was ceded to the United States in 1898 as a result of the Spanish–American War, women once again played an integral role in Puerto Rican society by contributing to the establishment of the University of Puerto Rico, women’s suffrage, women’s rights, civil rights, and to the military of the United States.

During the period of industrialization of the 1950’s, many women in Puerto Rico found employment in the needle industry, working as seamstresses in garment factories. Many Puerto Rican families also migrated to the United States in the 1950’s.

THE PUERTO RICAN EXPERIENCE

The Indian, Spanish and African races came together on the island of Puerto Rico, contributing their blood and traditions to the formation of the Puerto Rican culture.

The original inhabitants of Puerto Rico at the time of the Spanish conquest were the Taíno and Carib Indian-tribes.

We are young and old, we are women and men, we are professionals and blue collar workers, we are farmers and doctors, we are architects and farmers, we are actors and painters.

We are a bit of everything!!

‘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.
