1,012 deaths due to COVID-19 in Puerto Rico (John Hopkins University statistics) 11.22.20

1,012 deaths to date in Puerto Rico due to COVID-19. What a tragedy! And in the island what they talk about is statehood to resolve all issues. From now until Puerto Rico is a state, thousands more will die. And why is it that Cuba, a similar island in the Caribbean, does not suffer from the same, being a country with supposedly fewer resources? Well, don't say that to the Cubans and Puerto Ricans who voted for the infected Trompo as if it were the salvation of the universe. I'm sorry for all the friends, family, and musicians I have lost due to the Tromper plague. A great loss, but I wish you at least received a check from El Trompo before you died. I hope that one day they will see El Trompo for what it is - an immoral despot who manipulates weak minds with lies based on the wishes of those who want to be rich no matter what.

1,012 muertes hasta el dia de hoy en Puerto Rico debido al COVID-19. !Que Tragedia! Y alla lo que hablan es de estadidad para resolver. De aquí a que Puerto Rico sea estado morirán miles mas. ¿Y porque Cuba, isla similar del Caribe, no sufre de lo mismo, siendo un país con supuestamente menos recursos? Bueno, pero no le digan eso a los cubanos y puertorriqueños que votaron por el infectado Trompo como si fuera la salvación del universo. Lamento todas las amistades, familiares y músicos que he perdido debido a la plaga Trompera. Una gran perdida, pero les deseo que por lo menos recibieran un chequecito del Trompo antes de morir. Espero que algún dia vean el Trompo como lo que es – un inmoral déspota que manipula las mentes débiles con mentiras basadas en los deseos de esos que quieren ser ricos a como sea.

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.
