Talk about the status of Puerto Rico is irrelevant if it does not lead to substantial assistance to become truly self-governing. Colonization has failed. Let Puerto Rico take care of itself, Spain had already given Puerto Rico independence when it was forcefully grabbed by the United States for its purposes.

Hablar de independencia, “libre asociado”, o “estadidad” es irelelevante si no se le da a Puerto Rico los medios para ser auto-suficiente. En 1898, Espana ya le habia dado a Puerto Rico derecho a tener su propio gobierno cuando los Estados Unidos forzaron a Puerto Rico a ser parte de sus conquistas y propositos. Dejen a Puerto Rico, ya no queda mas, ahora es un “puerto pobre”.

I love media and communication, as well as digital technology. I write and speak fluently in Spanish and English. I was born in New York, but was sent to Puerto Rico at an early age, where I lived until drafted by the U.S. army. Upon returning from an honorable discharge, I found Puerto Rico small and limited at the time. I moved to Boston where I pursued musical studies and later worked as a musician, teacher, and speech-pathologist in New York. I am currently still interested in world politics, social justice, and income inequality. Health and wellness are essential to survive and thrive. I am working on patience and skills necessary to keep learning.
