Today we not only woke up to receive the 3Kings but to a 5.8 moderate earthquake on the southern part of the island. A few houses fell near the epicenter but thank God everyone is ok. It was a big scare but to my side of the island the shaking was not that strong. Since September we been having movements all around almost daily; so, people are freaking out in fear of a big one. Praying to God to bless our little island and all of us.

Yes, The three kings,3Marys or Orion Belt. We can see them in the beautiful night sky.
.
In Puerto Rico there is a female name for the stars we call the 3 wise men, they are equally called: The 3 Mary’s. On the Smithsonian page says about the 3 Mary’s... " however, a popular story of Puerto Rico tells that the three kings were suitors of the three Mary’s, to those who accompanied during the festivities of the place. This radical away from the scriptures is an example of the distinctive religious traditions that were emerging in the rural areas of Puerto Rico through the centuries ". (Boricuazo)
The picture was taken buy an amateur astronomer during a visit to the island on 2015.

Salute to all!
.
Still trembling here in the island but thank God we are all ok. Had a few power outages and my mind was someplace else with all the things going on here. But if you think the earth is going to swallow me; think again because a Cat 4 follow buy a cat 5 hurricane did not take me down, I’m sure not going to let the earth shake me down. So, if you thought I was gone… guess again. I AM BACK!!
Thank you for all your prayers and best wishes but you know me I am tougher than the rest and with God by my side we will be ok. Hoping to see you all around the dogfight Elite skies.

Glad you are safe. I figured you would be back. Saw a recent video of a fire ball there. I figured you shot down another meteor. It would be fun to see someone photoshop one or more TFL planes shooting at it.

The life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luthor King Jr. inspired so many lives.
.
I did not know that Dr. Martin Luthor King Jr. had visited our little island of Puerto Rico and was friends with our very own Roberto Clemente; inspiring in his short life. If you have a few minutes you will enjoy reading this historical and inspirational article written by Roberto Angotti.
.
In this pic: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke at Universidad Interamericana de Puerto Rico in February 1962.
,
The Great One “El Magnifico” Roberto Clemente was both black and Latino, one who sought equality despite the disparity between Puerto Rico’s easygoing acceptance of all and America’s hardline segregation regarding race, language and culture during the 50’s. The first black Puerto Rican to play in the American League was Clemente’s friend “El Gran Senor” Vic Power, the flashy-fielding Kansas City Athletics outfielder–who was dragged off the team bus one spring by the local authorities for buying a Coke from a whites-only gas station. Roberto despised the humiliation, internalizing it as if it were his own. Power tried to calm Clemente down with his wit and humor by recalling a conversation he had with a server at a Jim Crow-esque restaurant. “We don’t serve Negroes,” said the waitress. Power was relieved and replied, “That’s okay. I don’t eat Negroes. I just want rice and beans.”
. .
As a Spanish-speaking black man from Puerto Rico, Clemente battled against discrimination from day one in America and was outspoken about the inequities he faced. During his first seven years at Pirates Spring Training in Florida, he was not afforded the comfortable amenities a downtown hotel offered. Instead, Clemente was confined to living with a black family in the Dunbar Heights section of Fort Myers. When the Pirates held its annual spring golf tournament at the local country club, Roberto and the other black teammates were excluded.
As if that was not enough disrespect, while his white teammates dined at roadside restaurants on Grapefruit League road trips, Clemente would have to remain on the team bus. Fed up with such atrocities, he finally coerced the Pittsburgh Pirates front office management to allow the black players to travel in their own station wagon. Clemente said that enduring the unjust racial divide during spring training was like being in prison.
.
Roberto Clemente’s admiration for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his participation in the civil rights movement was spurred by the racism he experienced in the United States. During his professional career from 1954 to 1972, he saw significant change in both Major League Baseball and American society. Clemente was an intelligent and politically-charged activist who marched in the street protests of the 60’s and spent time with the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. when the civil rights leader visited him at his farm in Puerto Rico. He had a strong connection to King as the humanitarian witnessed firsthand the black freedom struggle from the Montgomery Bus Boycotts to the urban ghetto rebellions and from Rosa Parks to the Black Panthers
.
Roberto Clemente
.
When Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated in Memphis on April 4, 1968, Pittsburgh Pirates All-Star Roberto Clemente was devastated by the news. However, out of respect for the slain leader, he gathered up his teammates for a meeting to prevent the Pirates and Astros from opening their season on April 8th–the day before King’s burial. He convinced his fellow Pirates, which included 11 African Americans, to stand with him in unity. As a result of his extraordinary call to action in honoring his fallen hero, Pirates 1968 Opening Day was postponed and moved back to April 10th in observance of King’s memorial service. Like Dr. King, Clemente was a passionate believer of social and economic justice. Clemente once said, “If you have the chance to make things better for people coming behind you and you don’t, you are wasting your time on earth.”
.
David Maraniss quotes Clemente about being warned before speaking out on American injustice in his 2005 biography of the Hall of Fame outfielder: “They say, ‘Roberto, you better keep your mouth shut because they will ship you back.’ [But] this is something from the first day I said to myself: I am in the minority group. I am from the poor people.
I represent the poor people. I represent the common people of America. So, I am going to be treated like a human being. I don’t want to be treated like a Puerto Rican, or a black, or nothing like that. I want to be treated like any person.” Clemente had a profound social conscience and drive for justice. Toward the end of his career, Clemente felt he had made some headway against prejudice. “My greatest satisfaction comes from helping to erase the old opinion about Latin Americans and blacks,” he said. On April 3, 1968 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave a speech saying, “I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I’m not concerned about that now. I just want to do God’s will. And He’s allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I’ve looked over. And I’ve seen the promised land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we as a people will get to the promised land.” Clemente shared Dr. King’s personal fatalism and always believed that he would die before his time. His widow Vera remembered, “He always said he would die young that this was his fate.” Born on August 18, 1934 in Puerto Rico just outside of Carolina’s sugar cane fields–where today nearby stands a 30-foot-long cenotaph which encapsulates the life and death of the Puerto Rican legendary hero–Roberto Clemente boarded an ill-fated overweight DC-7 aircraft attempting to fly from San Juan to earthquake-stricken Nicaragua with relief supplies and died when the humanitarian mission flight went plunging into the sea shortly after take off on New Year’s Eve, 1972.
