Puerto Rico needs us…
Tuesday, September 26th, 2017

I know, I know. The folks in Houston and Florida need us, too. But they have some advantages Puerto Rico doesn’t—like a president who cares about their votes (Puerto Ricans can’t vote in the presidential election) and transportation connectivity. I know there are wildfires, earthquakes…horrible, apocalyptic devastation going on in several places in our country and the world, but after watching the news coverage of elderly and disabled, homebound people near death due to heat, lack of water, lack of dialysis and insulin, I have to add my voice. These are Americans, folks. They need us. Read about the crisis here if you aren’t a newshound like me and don’t know what’s happening: News about PR

My simple message today—if you can, give.

    I am an American who is also Puerto Rican and it’s absolutely true about the people there right now we were waiting for word for days and days on some of her relatives who are diabetic and didn’t have any electricity or cold insulin they needed so we were worried about them we finally heard from one yesterday so we know she’s OK but it’s gonna be a long road there’s no way to get out of her house the roads are washed And town still flooded. My grandmothers house is gone because it was wood. I am glad she’s not alive to see the destruction of her home and homeland
    I may have been born here while father served in Vietnam and am an American but I always considered myself a Puerto Rican first.
