I’m in Puerto Rico right now (8/4/15) and my island seems sad, frustrated and tired. From the moment I landed at the airport, I could see and feel a sense of despondency. Between the economic collapse and the current water crisis, our fellow Boricuas are suffering here in Borinquen and it shows in the infrastructure and on their faces.
I chose to travel here during these traumatic times because I want to help my people. I will be traveling around the island for the next 10 days asking them to share their stories – their pleas and pride. Follow my journey on my Facebook page, Newyoricangirl News & Views where I will share video clips of our conversations daily.
In the meantime, please hope for rain here and say a prayer for Puerto Rico. NEWYORICANGIRL
