Facebook slammed for deleting iconic Vietnam War photo – Sep. 9, 2016

“What they do in removing such pictures, whatever their reasons, is to edit our common history,” Solberg said in a statement that urged Facebook to face up to its responsibilities as a major media platform.

Facebook is not an objective media organization. The picture they deleted represents the failure of violence as a means to settle international disputes. This failure continues 44 years later.

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.
