Richmond Gun Rally: Thousands Of Gun Owners Converge On Virginia Capitol On MLK Day

Let’s be clear as to who promotes easy and unrestricted access to guns: “Vendors also descended on the city, setting up tables and portable racks to sell pro-Trump T-shirts and pro-gun paraphernalia.” The United States has come a long way since 1776. Laws have been established and resources have been given to enforce laws that PROTECT THE SAFETY of law-abiding citizens. Electoral laws, not armed people determine the future of presidents in the United States, not violence, rioting, and insurrection.

Only in the United States: Gun violence, as of 2018- “It is the leading cause of premature death in the US—killing more than 38,000 people and causing 85,000 injuries each year. What’s more, this a problem unique to the US. Researchers analyzed 11 countries over 14 years and the United States has had more mass shootings than the other 10 nations combined.” (https://centerforhealthprogress.org/blog/patterns-of-gun-violence/?gclid=Cj0KCQiAvJXxBRCeARIsAMSkAprAPoC–dgW0fG2KXUXZ-AqenvmRemzhjZg_Fs-Fmo-Bc5W6g_V22YaAuOgEALw_wcB)

I love media and communication, as well as digital technology. I write in Spanish and English, fluent in both languages: speak, read, write, comprehend. 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 studied music at Berklee College of Music, Boston, MA, and Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology at various New York City colleges, including New York University, New York City, New York. I played professionally in Puerto Rico, prior to entering Berklee College of Music, and after finishing studies there I played in the 80’s bass guitar briefly, with various latin bands, including the Machito Big Band Orchestra in 1982. I was part of their recording that year. Once I saw the transitory nature of music, I studied speech-pathology and worked in that function after teaching middle-school and elementary grades in the New York City Board/Department of Education. In that capacity, I also worked for the New York City Department of Health as an independent contractor providing therapy and evaluations for pre-school and school-age children. I later worked in the high school setting in that capacity before I retired from the Department of Education. I am now retired and with my spare time, I pursue old, and new dreams, as age is a reminder of the evanescence and impermanence of life.
