MEXICAN INDEPENDENCE DAY 2021!

Within this writing I share my congratulations and best wishes for Mexican Independence Day, and offer a moment to reflect upon the Mexican interconnections with Spanish history and the Americas.

IS IT REAL?

Within this writing I reflect upon the USA mission in Afghanistan to connect with worldwide regional humanitarian crisis such as in Venezuela and Syria. Since writing these words I wondered what words are left to describe the young lives who died to save others, to further question the socially constructed divides that are created by such terror attacks. I continue to remain proud of USA humanitarian efforts in Afghanistan.

REFLECTION | EMERGENT LEARNING.

Within this writing I reflect upon the process of learning as doing something, such as a process to shift a view, create an opinios and to build upon previous learning. It is through this thought that I share views upon the current evolving situation in Afghanistan, Venezuela and the book that I am reading, to discuss and reflect upon my own learning that is evolving through the learning of Spanish American History through its founding and creation story that leads to The United States of America.

MADE IN AMERICA!

Within this writing I would like to wish all the best for the MADE IN AMERICA TV series as featured on ABC’s World News Tonight with David Muir. I take note of why such efforts are important particularly as the effects of out-sourcing to home nations.

CHAPTER 11 | SUMMARY!

Within this writing I provide a summary of points of interests within this chapter 11 of the book entitled “EL NORTE.” II was particularly interested in the events that led to the Cuban-Spanish war, and that even as war took place the United States was not able to acquire Cuba. The U.S. continued to gain territory with wars. President Roosevelt became philosophical about the act of war. The claiming of territory was known as American Imperialism.

A RESPONSE | ISRAEL.

Within this writing I reflect upon the current violence that is taking place in Jerusalem, Israel.

THE AFGHANISTAN THREAT.

I wanted to offer a note upon the recent Afghanistan threat as I felt saddened to learn of this especially as I believe that the United States of America (USA) has taken part in homeland defence as well as peace-keeping missions within Afghanistan. Leaderships must understand the monetary and human-cost that is associated with war.Continue reading “THE AFGHANISTAN THREAT.”
