Golpe Militar Argentina

Mañana se Cumplen 42 años del último golpe militar en este hermoso país  Sudamericano. Según la CONADEP más de 30,000 personas desaparecieron entre el 1976-1983. Las masivas desapariciones se dieron entre los primeros tres años de la dictadura (1976-1979).  Lo peor de esta dictadura fue la apropiación de  los bebés,  de los cuales la mitad aun después de tanto tiempo siguen sin saber sobre su verdadera identidad.

Dirty Dancing

I miss Patrick Swayze so much!! 😥 I fell head over heels for him and the movie in general when I saw it. Of course, as a then 5 year old I wasn’t allow to see it  when it first came out (lol), but a few years lady I did and it has become One of my All Time favorite films!!  “Nobody puts Baby in a corner”  😉 

 

I miss You Patrick and Forever Will! 😥

The Promise (movie)

Deeply moving film staring Oscar Isaac and Christian Bale. This movie not only shows the Atrocities committed by the Turks and the Ottoman Empire against the systematic ethnic cleansing of the Armenians but also how people overcome the biggest obstacles in life.  I can’t even begin to imagine what it would be like to live in a war torn country and loosing all the people you love.

I love this review by a youtube user.

“I just watched The Promise in the theatre today… I’m writing in an objective way, and as a film expert I can assure you it’s a flawless movie It’s authentic, powerful and romantic This movie doesn’t just show the dark side of the Ottoman Empire during the war as many would presume, but it also shows the unconditional friendship between the two nations and how help was still there during those dark times It also shows how love was the key to survival and how love always wins (no matter what race, religion or gender) I also praise the cast & crew for such great script, visuals and acting This movie is definitely worth watching And don’t judge it or rate it if you haven’t watched it Be fair!”

Mario Benedetti – No Te Rindas

 

No te rindas, aún estás a tiempo

de alcanzar y comenzar de nuevo,

aceptar tus sombras,

enterrar tus miedos,

liberar el lastre,

retomar el vuelo.

no te rindas que la vida es eso,

continuar el viaje,

perseguir tus sueños,

destrabar el tiempo,

correr los escombros,

y destapar el cielo.

No te rindas, por favor no cedas,

aunque el frío queme,

aunque el miedo muerda,

aunque el sol se esconda,

y se calle el viento,

aún hay fuego en tu alma

aún hay vida en tus sueños.

Porque la vida es tuya y tuyo también el deseo

porque lo has querido y porque te quiero

porque existe el vino y el amor, es cierto.

Porque no hay heridas que no cure el tiempo.

Abrir las puertas,

quitar los cerrojos,

abandonar las murallas que te protegieron,

vivir la vida y aceptar el reto,

recuperar la risa,

ensayar un canto,

bajar la guardia y extender las manos

desplegar las alas

e intentar de nuevo,

celebrar la vida y retomar los cielos.

No te rindas, por favor no cedas,

aunque el frío queme,

aunque el miedo muerda,

aunque el sol se ponga y se calle el viento,

aún hay fuego en tu alma,

aún hay vida en tus sueños

porque cada día es un comienzo nuevo,

porque esta es la hora y el mejor momento.

Porque no estás solo, porque yo te quiero.

– Mario Benedetti

Say hello to hygge This wonderful article talks about how this book has become a best seller and how not only the Danish but the Scandinavian way of life is a great way to live.  

Why I No Longer talk to White People about Race

Does the title of this book offend you! GOOD!! Read IT!!  Imagine how fucking tired I am of people asking me All the time if I’m half white because I have a Hispanic last name and my skin is alabaster.   My Answer from now on; NONE OF YOUR FUCKING BUSINESS!

Ignoring Someone

Ignoring someone can be two sides of a coin. Either the person is so hurt beyond relief that is his or her way of letting you know how much you hurt them, of course that is if the culprit cares.  It could also mean the Person truly Doesn’t in fact care at All.
