The island of Puerto Rico where I was born and raised has suffered a severe storm catastrophe.. it has been almost destroyed. One hundred percent of its power was wiped out. There was no communication for days. We could not reach our loved ones in the island so we did not know if they were dead or alive. It has been one of the worst natural disasters for puertoricans in a century.
It just makes me think about how fragile human life is. In a few hours everybody’s lives were dramatically changed. . A few people died and others were just left homeless .
Now people are struggling to survive in an island with no power , no water, and few resources .. Food is scarce and gas is limited. And now the federal government is finally arriving and helping out… but it’s not enough . The mayor of Puerto Rico’s capital, Mrs. Cruz, made it very clear that there are people who are dying and there is not enough help from the federal government.
No way to go to hospitals or gas stations because there is not enough gas… can’t get gas because the gas stations are empty or have long lines.. can’t go to the grocery stores to get water and food because there is no gas in cars… can’t call anyone because there is no signal or internet… so on and so forth.
And now the president of this “great nation” is saying that the mayor of San Juan has poor leadership skills, and that the people of Puerto Rico want ” everything to be done for them.”
Now he is planning to travel to Puerto Rico this Tuesday. To do what? Make a show and pretend he cares about the victims ? It’s all politics, and he should be politically incorrect .. the government will spend too much money sending this clown and protecting him during this trip . This money should be spent helping the people of Puerto Rico.
The mayor or San Juan said she is mad as hell… we should all be mad as hell.
