Frijoles, Arroz y Jesus Christ

AJune 10, 2019

Cuando as llorado 

como yo y tus 

hermanas te llaman La 

Llorona.

Las lagrimos se vuelven 

a sangre, que escurren 

en cuajarones de 

penas, sobre mi cuerpo.

De nina llore por mi 

papa y hoy por mi gente 

y por el mundo de ver 

tanto sufrimiento.

It pains me to see the 

homeless, to hear of 

child abuse, domestic 

violence, substance 

abuse, human 

trafficking 

como ruido volcánica 

en mi panza. 

Mi cabeza llena de 

caracoles  y estos 

caracoles tienen voz, 

gritan

y los huelo  

pudriandose, 

es un dolor muy 

profundo

oigo los huesos tronar 

como relampagos.

Yo marche, pelea, y 

luche  en los 70’s, por 

mejores derechos de 

humanidad

por mujeres

trabajos

igualdad y 

representación en 

todos sectos y niveles. 

I wanted to build not 

destroy.

Many years later……

I’ve had an epiphany

I wonder why? Por que 

luche?

Por muchos 

malagradecidos 

(ungrateful).

Silly me I thought, I was 

not only opening doors, 

pero tumbando 

puertas!

I see people 

demanding, I 

repeatedly hear “that 

they are owed.” A 

sense of entitlement of 

that degree is a 

sociopath trait!

No one owes us 

anything. Every second 

is a gift, from our Lord. 

Embrace it. 

Estoy de acuerdo, this 

country was built by 

immigrants. But, I do 

not agree with rioting, 

burning, destroying, 

demanding your way 

into a country. We 

selected this country 

voluntarily, because we 

enjoy our rights and 

freedom here. But, you 

want to change it to 

satisfy your needs? The 

significance of this 

population cannot be 

ignored in American 

society. What do we do 

with 11 to 12 million 

undocumented 

workers. 

I want you to know I 

speak from personal 

experience. I have lived 

the immigration 

experience, this is not 

something I have read 

about. And, I agree the 

majority of immigrants 

are great people in 

search of a better life.

But, growing up I saw

the lies, of “getting over 

the man mentality,” the 

cheating of the system,  

people receiving two or 

more government 

checks under different 

names.  I saw it all; the 

crimes and criminal 

behaviors.

Me parte el Corazon, to 

see the level of violence 

on TV, to see the hate, 

rage and violence. Your 

anger is misdirected! 

We need to engage in 

communication not 

destruction!

Defenders always try to 

present themselves as 

compassionate people 

who care for the 

underprivileged. They 

characterize Capitalism 

as a dog-eat-dog 

system that produces 

inequities, with great 

disparities between the 

rich and the poor.

I believe in helping 

people in need or the 

poor.  I give to 

organizations, 

churches and social 

welfare organizations 

that provide food and 

clothing. 

But, I do so “willingly” 

as an expression of my 

love of Jesus. No one 

forces me to do so. And, 

that is the key 

difference. I do not 

want government to 

“force” me to do so!

As my strands of hair 

turn silver I’d rather 

focus on my 

relationship with my

Lord, grow herbs, cook

and travel with Mi 

Corazon.

I long of smelling the 

sweet aromas of wet 

rain, of sweet lavender 

fields and freshly 

mowed grass……. of 

people coexisting 

happily and respecting 

each other.

Not, caracoles 

pudriéndose  en mi 

cabeza.

 

Abrazos y Besos

Published by

I am perpetually creative, and my eyes “feel” art everywhere. Who am I, I am an open book. I believe that sharing “from the heart” with one another is what connects us, heals us, and inspires us! My love for my Lord, family, friends, cooking, crafting, gardening/nature, vintage, sewing and different cultures; these passions and too many more to list, have moved my hand to paper, thus, Abrazos y Besos. In addition to a nudge by my baby sister, Dudies. My last name is Hug which means Abrazo in Spanish, hence the name of my blog: “Abrazos y Besos” translating to “Hugs & Kisses.” I will focus on our personal life journey with Mi Corazon (Augie Hug) sprinkled with love, spice and fun. Please tune in. Philippians 4:13 New King James Version (NKJV) 13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
