Tears of joy, tears of frustration and tears of sadness filled my eyes during the week I spent on the island of my ancestors recently. I’ve tried to soothe myself by producing this travelogue video.
I was ecstatic to return to the healing waters of Puerto Rico – which I crave constantly because they rejuvenate me in a way no other H2O can.
It broke my heart to be reminded of the beautiful and gracious souls of my people who continue to politely serve the United States without full and equal voting rights and/or representation.
I didn’t want to leave the island when it came time to board the airplane headed back to the mainland. I wanted to stay and fight for what my people have earned and deserve.
The call to return is a resounding coqui sound in my head that I cannot ignore. NEWYORICANGIRL
