Power of the people

Many of you may have heard of the resiliency of the people of Puerto Rico who in a united front outed the Governor. Governor Rossello resigned on 7/25/19 marking 8/2/19 as his last day in office.

I followed the events closely, having family back home. Being part of the diaspora. Knowing full well I not only supported my people in this revolution, but thinking, I wish Americans were this united and passionate against corruption.

In the midst of the revolution I wrote this poem:

Our people are resilient.

Our people are brilliant.

The pleas are clear….

Ricky start packing your gear.

Our people are expressive

Our people are tired of the suppressive.

I hear the sounds of the battlecries

Ricky our people are tired of the lies.

Our people are creative.

Our people are innovative.

The rage is real, the people are driven.

Ricky they ain’t stopping until your Leaving.

Not seeking re-election is not enough.

The people are tired of all the fluff.

Stepping down from your party’s leadership will not suffice.

It might be time you listen and take the people’s advice.

During the protests and pleas of the people I prayed. Vigilantly. I prayed for peace. I prayed for our leaders regardless of the escándalo. I prayed for our protestors. I prayed for the officers. I pray for this transition and I pray for our island.

Vamos primeramente orar por nuestro pueblo, nuestra gente, el liderazgo que se va y el liderazgo que se va entrar…. poniendo todos lo opiniones a lado. Dios fue muy misericordioso con este revulaccion. Despiertan, despiertan la isla del cordero, despierta, despierta como un leon feroz. Vamos orar por la policia, la guarda nacional, los soldados que estuvieron medio del frente de este revulacion unidos de la junta. Oramos por las iglesias que estuvieron vigilando, orando, llorando, y pidiendo que Dios intercede por nuestra isla. Vamos orar que los lideres del mañana sean líderes como Devorah, que sean sabio, que temen a Dios por el ha sido misericordioso con todos. Que se no sean corrupto, que siempre ponga la necesidad y el clamor del pueblo adelante. Despierta mi gente despierta! Pero no Olvides que sin Dios no se podría lograr este victoria pequeña. El clamor del pueblo se han oído, pero el pueblo también tiene una responsabilidad civil. Hay que restaurar nuestra naccion en todos los departamentos y eso solamente se puede lograr si se mantiene la unión. Paz, amor, bendiciones y victoria mi gente ✊🏾🙏🏽✌🏼🙌🏻❤️🇵🇷
