Dad sent me this video back in March. Danny en Collores...

If you are Puerto Rican then you know El Valle de Collores by Puerto Rican poet Luis LLornés Torres. Mrs. Higuera, one of my school's Spanish teacher from Cuba, assigned us to memorize el Valle De Collores for Spanish class. We had to stand in front of the room and recite out loud. I loved it, and her, Mrs. Higuera, and the poem. Dad, here so proud of Puerto Rico's bounty. Todo es diferente hoy. Everything is different today. María was ferocious to her, la Verde Luz. But, after a knock out it's back up again, one step at a time, one day at a time. Defeat is humbling. I'm not saying Puerto Rico is defeated. Because it isn't, but the storm beat it so. Puerto Rico te amo. You are not alone. With a heavy heart and in full awareness and solidarity with all the towns, countries, and people suffering around world. #PuertoRico #BorinquenVive
