FEMA’s Hurricane Aid to Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands Has Stalled

Maria tomo por sorpresa a Puerto Rico 😯❓❓❓❓❓❓❓❓❓❓❓❓No entiendo🤷🏼‍♂️

El amor de los puertorriqueños hacia los Estados Unidos siempre ha sido irracional. Es un producto de siglos de servidumbre a otros que colonizaron la isla cuando la encontraran llena de habitantes indefensos.

In spite of Puerto Rico, being a tropical island, normally exposed to hurricanes on a yearly basis, being prepared for one, Maria caught the local government by surprise. Now, after being exposed as a viper’s nest, full of profiteering scammers, the island lingers in agony after initial promises of a quick recovery. With all the finger pointing on both sides of the Atlantic, the recovery will last far longer than anybody anticipated, but politicians on both side will continue to labor to find who to blame for its incompetence and dishonesty.

A pesar de que Puerto Rico era un trópico normalmente expuesto a huracanes cada año, María tomó por sorpresa al gobierno local y no se preparó para uno. Ahora, después de haber sido expuesto como un nido de víboras, lleno de estafadores que se enriquecen, la isla se mantiene en agonía después de las promesas iniciales de una recuperación rápida. Con todos los dedos apuntando a ambos lados del Atlántico, la recuperación durará mucho más de lo que nadie anticipó, pero los políticos de ambos lados continuarán trabajando para encontrar a quién culpar por su incompetencia y deshonestidad.

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.
