Hi dear readers and friends. Long time no sees. I have not been able to ignite the posts in me that I want to share. As you might have seen I have been unhappy with the way our world is developing at the moment and I don’t want to be a doom writer. I want to be a blog about hope, love, and friendship. A blog about people helping this world and everything on it. Ironically, today’s blog is a bit of both.
Who is Mr. Giovanni Brignoni? He is a few things. First and foremost, Mr. Brignoni is a helicopter pilot in Puerto Rico. Secondly, Mr. Brignoni will be a symbol that stands for the people of Puerto Rico and those that are helping them. But let’s start with Mr. Brignoni.
You know… I couldn’t tell you a thing, not a clue except for the little bit I have seen from a video I will link below as Facebook doesn’t allow me to embed. This is a video by David Begnaud. A CBS journalist who has been covering the events in Puerto Rico ever since the Hurricane devastated the islands. While Mr. Begnaud has been keeping P.R in the public eye, Mr. Brignoni has been flying all over, rescuing people with every flight in many ways. Please watch the following to get an emotional but honest report and you might understand why I choose Giovanni Brignoni to be “the face” of today’s Everyday Heroes

I hope you agree that this man is a very shiny example of an Everyday Hero.
The People in Puerto Rico
Thos that lived there and fell victim as well as those that came and are helping the Islanders get back on their feet. Many people are working tirelessly to restore power and water, clean up beaches and town, clear taken down forests. Nature has a habit to heal itself over time and I am sure that in that regard, in a few years Puerto Rico will be back to its former beauty.
I would like to show you a video made by Sigma 3 survival school about their efforts to provide the so much needed help
I want to conclude with a few mentions and requests.
My first mention must be Carmen Yulín Cruz. The Mayor of San Juan who has been a voice for the people of Puerto Rico and has done lots of work when others waited for “official help”. She has imo shown to be a true leader and the people of San Juan and Puerto Rico should be dang proud of her.
My second mention must be my dear friend Horty Rexach. A proud Boricua that lives in the USA and has kept Puerto Rico in the news with her blogs and FB activity. I can advise no better place to go and get to know Puerto Rico and how the situation evolves then by reading It is what it is by Dr.Rex
Finally, I want to request you follow the above blog and David Begnaud and if you happen to feel generous please donate to a relief charity of your choosing. If you don’t know one you might try http://rickymartinfoundation.org/
Welcome back to the blogosphere my brother! I’ve been finding it hard to write as of late aside from my ministry I’m also working third shift at a psychiatric hospital for adolescents.

Martin, Great way to come back to writing with tributes to Giovanni Brignoni, Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, & our very own friend, Horty Rexach!!! Horty has really been an online crusader for Puerto Rico I know you agree!!! First video said, “Unavailable”…Must be a USA only thing! Second video came through fine! Fine job, Martin!!! Phil
Hi my friend. Thank you so much for your kind words. If I am not mistaken the window should also contain the text view on facebook. That should bring people to the video. I will link you on FB to make sure 🙂 And yes, Agree fully on Horty
