SEVILLA FC!

Congratulations to Spanish Soccor / Football Club – Sevilla FC’s UEFA Europa League Football Championship! To celebrate this win and also the recent reading / writing about American History as related to the Spanish Expeditions I decided to cook Churro’s. A traditional Spanish and Portuguese dessert, which is also a popular American dessert. Congratulations Sevilla FC!

THE SIGNIFICANCE.

These thoughts are a continuation of my previous reflection pertaining to the sadness I felt within the discovery of history, and also the excitement. I take sometime to flesh the sadness to surface, and give importance to this, and also offer hope, so that within the discovery of history, there is still time to learn, conserve, create and re-create a present and a future.

SUGAR SKULL!

Sugar Skulls are utilized often for the purposes of celebration and commemoration during the Day of the Dead / Dia De Los Muertos. They were also symbolic of traditions and customs during the pre-Columbian era as a representation of re-birth, as well as for the Roman Catholic faith of All Souls Day.

REFLECTION | UNCOVERED HISTORY.

These thoughts are a continuation from the journey of study of American History. Within these thoughts I offer a reflective tone, that encompasses a sadness of history tied to the Spanish Explorations, and development of settlements that is deeply entrenched within America present day, but feels somewhat on the brink of being diminished, especially through the development of present day politics.

REFLECTION | A JOURNEY WITH TIME!

This writing is a reflection of the current collection of thoughts that are related to the American history associated with the Spanish Expeditions. I take a moment to come back to the present moment to reveal the significance of history and the significance of history upon present day impacts.

AMERICAN HISTORY! TREASURES | LOST OR FOUND?

The thoughts contained within this writing were inspired from the recent discovery that I tweeted. For the purposes of contexts I decided to write a couple thought relating to the original tweet about the historical Spanish explorations of the American South. Further to this thought I contend that at present day, we must hold high regard for the founders of states and nation.

A Q and A!

These thoughts reflect upon my a question that I had written in my previous thoughts, they seek to build and expand our awareness upon the significance of the ship / sailboats as modes of travel within history for expeditions, imports and exports of goods and services. I further tie this thought with the protests / socio-political moments which have sought to create unnecessary divides that are not directly linked to the reason of protest. #ShaziaBlog

THE USMCA!

The USMCA seeks to offer congratulations upon the recent signing of the document. I write that it would have been nice to see all three nations presence, but was further inspired with the Mexican President’s visit as he acknoledges shares history between Mexico and the USA. I connect these thoughts to the recent toppling of statues, with a belief that the erasing of history with violent acts is not a solution.

POV | HISTORICAL MIGRATIONS!

These thoughts reflect upon a recent video that I watched that has enabled discussion and reflective viewpoints. To once again desire for openness to learning and dialogues that are associated with the racial topics. Within these thoughts I offer a historical viewpoint relating to migration. #ShaziaBlog
