My beloved brother from another mother … a huge loss!! All his good friends feel with him and are here for him!! FFL …
If you are a follower of this blog and are now reading this. <y hats off to you. Thank you for visiting even though I have been away for yours.
A lot has happened, but of that lot, the most important and impactful one was last October 15th thing that could possibly happen became reality. At half past 9 that evening, my lovely beautiful wife gave up her fight against (what we thin was) Neuroleptic Malgnam Syndrome. A very rare side effect of anti psychotics. She was 57 years and 15 days old. I will miss her forever.
Lijda and I have been married for 22 years and we have been together for 25. She was my light, my inspiration, my rock. Everything I did, Everything I was, it was all for her.
So.. now I have to find something to do and maybe bringing back my blog is one…

There was a time in my life that this song was quite important. The idea of coming to America was always on mind – even though as a Puerto Rican – I’m a naturally born American citizen. I grew up with the goal of coming to live here permanently.
The ‘Jazz Singer‘ was one of my favorite movies, Neil Diamond one of my favorite singers.
I actually went to one of his concerts and he ended it with this song and displaying a huen American flag in the background.
It was a chilling, impressive and hair-rising moment.
“America” is a song written and originally recorded by Neil Diamond, released in 1980 on the soundtrack album of Diamond’s film The Jazz Singer.
This is a tribute to immigration in America, where people from all over the world were welcome to come and seek opportunity. Diamond grew up in Brooklyn, New York, where many Europeans arrived. His grandparents were immigrants: on his father’s side they came from Poland, and on his mother’s side from Russia.
Diamond wrote this for the 1980 movie The Jazz Singer, where he starred as a young Jewish man who must defy his father to follow his dreams of becoming a singer.
Later, they moved to Miami where she participated in different musicals including Godspell, Jubilee and Show Boat in addition to singing with the chorus of Jubilee, which was invited by Pope Paul VI to sing at St. Peter’s Basilica as part of the celebration of the 1975 Holy Year. She is now is the arbitrator on a show called “Caso Cerrado” which airs on Universo at different times throughout the entire day.
‘América’, la emotiva canción de Ana María Polo en homenaje a los inmigrantes en EE.UU.
Ana María Polo, más conocida como la doctora Polo, lanzó la canción ‘América’, en la que envía un mensaje positivo sobre la lucha de los inmigrantes en Estados Unidos.
La pieza musical es una nueva versión de la original interpretada por Neil Diamond, a la que le agregó sonidos cercanos a la balada, la salsa y el reggae.

“América Lejos, Venimos desde lejos, Sin un hogar Pero llenos de sueños Libre Sólo queremos ser libre Nos acurrucamos juntos Nos Aferramos a un sueño En barcos y en aviones Llegamos a América. Nunca mirando hacia atrás. Llegamos a América. Hogar Nuestro Hogar no está tan lejos. Estamos viajando leve y sin mucho equipaje. Pero guiados por una estrella. En el ojo de la tormenta, En el ojo de la tormenta … “
“Lamentablemente en los últimos años la palabra inmigrante ha adquirido una connotación de odio y separación, por eso quise hacer este video para todos ustedes que trae un mensaje positivo y que también nos recuerda que llegamos aquí buscando estabilidad, libertad y trabajo”, escribió la abogada.
