Weary times in Puerto Rico

4 Aug

I’m in Puerto Rico right now (8/4/15) and my island seems sad, frustrated and tired. From the moment I landed at the airport, I could see and feel a sense of despondency. Between the economic collapse and the current water crisis, our fellow Boricuas are suffering here in Borinquen and it shows in the infrastructure and on their faces.

I chose to travel here during these traumatic times because I want to help my people. I will be traveling around the island for the next 10 days asking them to share their stories – their pleas and pride. Follow my journey on my Facebook page, Newyoricangirl News & Views where I will share video clips of our conversations daily.

In the meantime, please hope for rain here and say a prayer for Puerto Rico. NEWYORICANGIRL

    I feel so sorry for my country but lack of concern has an explanation to me for so many years we were strategically broken most puertorricans believe they cannot make it without the U. S. What is very suspicius to me is that while the island is such financial crisis, no water and many other bad thing How they opened a shopping center that very few people in P>R> can afford it. I believe this is a plan so boricuas leave the island for God knows what purpose
