UNBREAKABLE – A Story of Hope and Healing in Haiti

In the late afternoon of January 12, 2010, an otherwise ordinary day turned into a nightmare, forever changing the tranquil yet volatile nation of Haiti.

A magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck the land that day devastating an already impoverished nation. It wiped out entire villages, and collapsed buildings including the country’s government headquarters. Hundreds of thousands lost their lives, more than one million were displaced, and tens of thousands were injured—including countless children and young people who suffered the loss of limbs.

Two American organizations stepped in. Despite corruption in the country and the threat of failure, Project Medishare set up clinics to aid the victims, and the Knights of Columbus, an international charitable organization, provided the funding necessary to ensure that prosthetic limbs would be made available for every child amputee. But this was only the beginning of the story.

A small group of earthquake victims became emboldened to defy deeply entrenched Haitian stereotypes against people with disabilities. They formed Team Zaryen, an amputee soccer team that has transformed victims into beacons of hope, creating real possibilities for those attempting to rebuild their lives from the rubble of the 2010 earthquake. Team Zaryen’s dream to give back to those whose efforts helped them get back on their feet stretches all the way to Washington, offering help and inspiration to wounded American veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.

STILL STANDING WITH JULIA TORRES 3/10/2015

Julia

Julia Torres

Interview with Author Julia Torres

“Julia from playground battles in New Jersey to Operation Desert Shield, from battling the effects of a date-rape drug to government-ordered BP pills silently waging war on her body. This is the explosive story of a young woman who never backs down, whether a decorated soldier bringing to light the cover-up of sexual harassment in the armed forces or later working as an undercover agent. As a high school and college English/Theatre teacher for forty-seven years, I recommend this brave, jaw-dropping book that chronicles the experiences of a true hero for readers 14 to 94.” ~ Sarah Rosenberg, Co-Founder and Artistic Director of Open Hydrant Theatre Company, Bronx, New York

“In her memoir, Julia vividly and candidly invites us to share intimate moments which shaped her into the woman she is today, still standing. Her personal account of perseverance and triumph reminds us that our circumstances do not define us but rather molds us into the best version of ourselves.” ~ Patty Smith, LT COL, USA

“CUBA, ADIOS” BY LORENZO PABLO MARTINEZ 2/26/2015

Lorenzo

Lorenzo Pablo Martinez

Between 1960 and 1962 more than 14,000 Cuban children escaped Fidel Castro’s communist regime as part of an airlift known as Operación Pedro Pan. LORENZO PABLO MARTÍNEZ was one of these children. In CUBA, ADIÓS: A Young Man’s Journey to Freedom, Martínez vividly recounts his participation in a program that bridged two different cultures and achieved great political significance over the years. At eighteen, he forfeits a music scholarship to Prague to accept an unknown future of exile in America without knowing the language, money to pursue an education, or family to help. Plagued by guilt around his sexual identity and having to care for a younger brother, Martínez forges ahead to become the composer of his future; later he opens the doors that enable his sisters and parents to join him after a harrowing sojourn in Mexico City. With the same determination, he attends college and pursues a music education, obtaining a master’s degree from the Manhattan School of Music, then a doctorate from Columbia University. Even after his music compositions are published and performed on television and at international festivals, Martínez feels restless and spiritually unfulfilled. Until, that is, he is able to define the true music of his freedom. CUBA, ADIÓS is a poignant, thoughtful account of one boy’s survival and self-acceptance, written with unflinching honesty and a wry humor.

BIO: LUIS GONZALEZ

Luis González nació en La Habana, Cuba, donde pasó los primeros siete años de su vida. Su madre, viuda y con tres hijos, huyó del estado comunista con sus niños en remolque. La familia se mudo a Culver City, California, un municipio de Los Ángeles. Aunque lejos de su patria, Luis se dio cuenta que llevaba a Cuba en el alma, en su sangre cuando en el sexto grado, hizo un reporte sobre su país y ahí comenzó una relación amorosa con su patria que continúa hasta el dia de hoy. Desde la edad escolar primaria, Luis supo que llevaba la escritura en su sangre. “Siempre me ha gustado escribir, desde niño y supongo que siempre he sido autor independient. Cuando estaba en el tercer grado, después de sólo haber estado en este país un par de años, escribí dos cuentos. Uno se llama Las Zapatillas Mágicas, el otro, Los Delfines. Tomé hojas de papel que doblé y grapé, y no sólo escribí los cuentos, sino los ilustré e hice la portada y todo por ellos. Todavía tengo estos dos primeros libros míos, y ahora que miro hacia atrás me digo, “De verdad que siempre fui escritor, por lo menos en mi alma.” Hasta hoy esos dos libritos siguen siendo dos de mis posesiones más preciadas. Luis estudio y se graduó de UCLA con licenciatura en literatura inglés y una concentración en composición y literatura española. A Luis le inspira profundamente y es conmovido por la política, la religión y las artes, cuales forman hilos de la tela en su escribir.

Luz: una novela que amarra esos tres componentes pero al estilo cubano.
