PR Parade 2017 Marches On Without Corporate Sponsors


recap of #prparade



there was a lot of controversy surrounding the Puerto Rican Day parade this year.  no one seemed to agree on any point.  everyone was polarized.  including me.  no one was gonna convince me against what i stood for!  i was standing my ground!  







the controversy surrounded a political prisoner Oscar Lopez Rivera.  a political prisoner of war who was just released.  Some call him a terrorist and as such should not be allowed to march.  and others calling him our mandela.


here is my recap of the #PRparade2017.






i was shocked. dismayed. distressed.  


i go to the parade every year.  so i speak from experience.  the crowds were thin.  even on the subway.  as we're walking ...

Take Your DAUGHTERS to Work Day

I took my daughter to work with me a few weeks ago.  I had to pick up some documents from the court.  We enter the court building and take the elevator up and go to the clerk's window and ask for said documents after I show her my attorney ID.  The clerk could not locate them.  She said she would ask someone to assist her obtain said documents for me.  She walks away towards the back.  We see her returning with what we assume is her supervisor.  We can hear her explaining what  I had requested.  Then we hear her answer her supervisor, "The one on the left is the one that asked".

Really?  It's bad enough, they never believe that I'm an attorney but now you can't tell the difference between a teenager and the lawyer.  No but really? 

My daughter accompanied me to the Supreme Court of the United States.  She met the Honorable Sonia Sotomayor.  There is no better type of learning than hands on!

It's very important to take our DAUGHTERS to work.  Until women get equal pay, equal standing, same opportunities.

To all the little girls who are watching me, never doubt that you are valuable and deserving of every chance, of every opportunity in the world to pursue your goals and dreams.                  -Hillary Clinton

4 o’clock hour of the night

I always remember. We were little and my little sister was so sick that her little usual hyper self was motionless on the bed and Grandma paced back and forth, back and forth. It was so late that I didn’t recognize the hour. I never knew the night had so many numbers. How was it that the night had a three- o’clock? And my Grandma, my mama de crianza, paced and paced.


No money, no medicine.  She poured out the Agua Florida all over my little sister’s body down to her little toes and covered her up with the blanket.

Agua Florida is so cold.  It usually made me shiver.  But my little sister seemed not to feel the coldness of the Agua Florida.  Not even when Grandma...

Thanks for reading my blog!
