Every Day Heroes Special Edition – Giovanni Brignoni


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.

Giovanni 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/

HUMANITARIAN CRISIS IN PUERTO RICO

CBS 60 MINUTES OVERTIME

This past Sunday, November 5, CBS Television had a special segment detailing information about many Puerto Ricans, American citizens, have endured the longest blackout in American history following a direct hit from Hurricane María. I’ve been looking for this special on YouTube to share it with you.

The situation in Puerto Rico is still dire. 

It seems that the segment presented in the regular show isn’t available yet. I will keep looking and share it when I find it.

During my search, I found this 60 Minutes Overtime presented on November 05 by Brit McCandless Farmer.

Take a look, please!

Hail to the chief: cyclist gives Drumpf the middle finger

The ‘so-called president’ of the United States is used to being saluted but a cyclist in Virginia put her own particular slant on the tradition on Saturday when she was overtaken by Drumpf’s motorcade.

The woman on her bike was photographed raising her middle finger when Drumpf’s vehicles passed her on their way out from the Drumpf National Golf Club on the banks of the Potomac river, on the outskirts of Washington DC.

She repeated the gesture when she caught up with the motorcade.

As noted in the White House pool report, “POTUS’s motorcade departed the Drumpf National Golf Club at 3:12 PM, passing two pedestrians, one of whom gave a thumbs-down sign.

Then it overtook a female cyclist, wearing a white top and cycling helmet, who responded by…

FEELS LIKE AN ETERNITY

HURRICANE MARIA

Today is the 46th day after Hurricane María made landfall in Puerto Rico. As you know, Puerto Rico is a colony of the mighty imperialistic U.S. of A.

There’s no doubt that the ‘master’ has treated its colony without any regard to the well-beings of its ‘subjects’.

To this day, Puerto Ricans are deeply feeling the effects of this uninterested involvement and response.

Puerto Rico, like a Phoenix, will rise up and be better than it was before.

This is the Boricua spirit!

#YoNoMeQuito

Here’s a ‘gentle reminder’ of how things are in the Island.

WE HAVE A LEADER WHO HAS A PERSONALITY DISORDER

Malignant narcissism is a psychological syndrome comprising an extreme mix of narcissism, antisocial personality disorder, aggression, and sadism. Often grandiose, and always ready to raise hostility levels, the malignant narcissist undermines organizations in which they are involved and dehumanizes the people with whom they associate.

“DO SOMETHING TWEET”

I started reading the book ‘The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump‘ where 27 psychiatrists and mental health experts assess a president. Being in the medical field for all my professional life, I can say that this book is very well written and rather than fictional, story-telling, biographical, it presents medical facts. It is serious and alarming information.

I will also be reading Keith’s new book too.

PARDON THE ANALOGY

LIKE A ZIT READY TO POP

How long have we been waiting?

Almost one year after the election. I strongly believe there’s so much more, this is just the tip of the iceberg, barely beginning. For the sake of this nation, this process better come to full fruition, with the expected results.

May gawd have mercy on this country!

I feel this is important information about what is happening in the Republican Administration lead by Drumpf and what we need to be aware of.
Keith Olbermann series called “The Resistance” continues.
He has posted installment #141.
The video speaks for itself.
If this resonates with you, good.
If it doesn’t, just scroll away to the next blog.
Thank you!
