Latinos Help To Build Our Cities, Too.

This headline is real and is troubling and this grief is even more heart wrenching:

crane25n-3-web2 Years, 31 Dead Construction Workers. New York Can Do Better.

Not only can NY do better but NY can also praise those Latino workers who have given their lives to build our cities while trying in earnest to provide for their families.

I call them the unknown heroes who wake up at the crack of dawn with their hard hats in their hands and their loved ones in their iPhones.

The marchers will march but no matter where your political, social, or moral views are, sometimes it is okay to stand alone.

I just saw this beautiful photo of our beloved Rita Moreno and could not help but notice that there was a time when HIV Aids marginalized the millions who were struggling to understand this disease.

This Twitter post comes via Diana Bosch and I encourage you to follow her:

Rita Moreno was one of earliest stars to publicly support AIDS fundraisers when it was highly stigmatized during the 80s “AIDS hysteria”

A Moment of NOISE on MLKDay

Today is a necessary day devoted to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his nonviolent approach to civil rights and activism. Social media outlets are blasting quotes, photos, and it’s safe to say #MLKDay is trending on all platforms; as it should.

Even GoogleDoodles recognized this day with their image of diverse characters interconnected by holding hands.

Holding HANDS in a world that is filled with a lot of noise nowadays. No one is talking or listening to iGadgets in this image; they are without a mouth and holding hands. What’s the message? One eye – no mouth – interconnected…

While we hold hands today I cannot help but ask the burning question that I know we all know the answer to – what about tomorrow? Where will that powerful image retreat to?

Well…Dr. King held hands with everyone
