Clara Balcacer-Colon and I were speaking this morning, no matter how much we hoped and pray to remove the trauma Clara and I and so many others suffered; sadly it is our memories but....It does not mean we do not stand strong together. The most important and amazing thing we can say to one another, "WE KNOW AND WE ARE HERE FOR YOU." Be bless my sister and brother SURVIVORS.

Superheroes emerge when the world needs them most and, right now, Puerto Rico could really use its own caped crusader. Meet La Boriqueña. She is tough, she is proud and she is most definitely Boricua.

WHY DO SOME POLICE OFFICERS CALL VICTIMS AND SURVIVORS OF (OIDV) LIARS?

This morning I was speaking to our sister survivor, it truly amazes me how some Police Officer Involved Domestic Violence continues to threaten us with false accusations within the courts or calling us liars because we refuse to drop the Protection Order of ABUSE….
Many of them know that in order to control us you go through the children…Many are nothing but a bunch of punks!!! You are unable to control the strong, positive, dynamic, amazing SURVIVOR!!
Stay strong my SURVIVORS…..Be bless always!!!

SO....I notice many posting that they will not vote for Hilary Clinton....I sit back and have watched all the attacking against President Obama for the past eight years...And then we have a bigot yes, a BIGOT, Donald Trump attacking a judge because his parents are from Mexico!!! I understand that many are anger that Mr. Sanders lost but...Do you really want Trump in the WHITE HOUSE?! Are you willing to risk putting this twisted man into office I was almost blocked from voting because of my ethnicity!!! Wake up people!

I'm writing in my vote, you don't got to vote, for who is put in front of you, even tho they wont get it, my mind will be at peace for who I wanted. The system is trash, cause many Americans don't know what vote counts for them, and this was that time, they don't know when they vote in the fall they are voting for the ELECTORAL COLLEGE to vote for the PRESIDENT

The food and drinks are outstanding. I feel like I am back in California. I have found no place in Philadelphia that can make margaritas like La Margaritas

I accompanied my daughter because she heard the same advertisement on the radio....First we sat for several hours waiting for a sales person. For a 2013 mini van with 41,000 miles and no alarm, cloth seating and the vehicle fired back, would you believe they wanted $23,000 dollars for the van. Shame on this dealership and your false advertisement. I must applauded my daughter, because her friend advised her Buddy Matt, to have her older brother George, run the car through Kelley Blue Book and the car was only valued between 18,000 - 16,000. I am so proud of my daughter....Mami did not raise no dummy!!!
