My abuser died today

Today my sister told me that my cousin died of pancreatic cancer.

I really don't know how to feel. I had wished him suffering and it happened.

When we were both 12, he got a tape recorder for Christmas. We were playing around and he said f*ck on tape and then erased it and dared me to, I did but he wouldn't erase it. He said if I didn't do what he wanted he would play the tape to my mom and dad and grandparents. For 2 years there was a lot of unwanted touching but no intercourse because I told him I didn't want to get pregnant and that stopped him although he tried to convince me to let him do anal.

When I was 14, I told him no more and to just play the tape because I would rather get the punishment for saying a bad word than continue letting him touch me or worse. He played it at Christmas in front of all the adults in the family and the tape had degraded so much they didn't understand it or know it was me.

Now I'm sitting here feeling like crying and not knowing how to feel about his death and the suffering I wish on him.

UK Bookmaker now sees Elizabeth Warren as favored to win Democratic Primary


Elizabeth Warren has overtaken Joe Biden as favorite to win the Democratic Party's 2020 primary, according to a leading British bookmaker. Biden, a former U.S. vice president and senator for Delaware, is leading the polls, but has generated headlines recently for repeated gaffes, a foible of his.

Warren, the current U.S. senator for Massachusetts, is polling around third or fourth place depending on the survey in a wide and diverse field of more than 20 candidates.

The bookmaker Ladbrokes said it now has Warren at 9/4 favorite to win the Democratic nomination in 2020. Biden slipped to 11/4. Joint third are Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, an independent socialist, and the party's California Senator Kamala Harris. Both are on 6/1.

Colores, colores by Bacilos - great Spanish song addressing racism

Bacilos was a Latin pop band based in Miami. They won Grammy awards for Best Latin Pop Album in 2003 and 2005 and numerous awards throughout South America. The group broke up in 2007.

Their song Colores, colores has been used high school Spanish classes all over the country, so there are many, many videos of the song on YouTube with photos and lyrics (often with a few spelling errors). It works well with upper elementary students too. This is one example of a student project, but you will find many more.



On October 2017, the band decided for a reunion and released their latest hit, "Por Hacerme el Bueno". In August 2018, the band released their fourth studio album "¿Donde Nos Quedamos?".
