Puerto Rico Constitution Day

Law #1 of August 4, 1952 of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico established a full state holiday on July 25 of every year, to be known as Puerto Rico Constitution Day. The holiday commemorates the day the Constitution of Puerto Rico, approved on July 3, 1952, was signed into law by Governor Luis Muñoz Marín the same year.

Up to then, July 25 had been a holiday in Puerto Rico, known as “Occupation Day”, to commemorate the arrival of United States military forces on July 25, 1898 in an area of the municipality of Yauco that in the early 20th century would become the separate municipality of Guánica.

The government of Puerto Rico holds a commemorative ceremony every year, the most recent of which was held at the Puerto Rico Department of State headquarters building, the “Edificio de la Real Intendencia”, in Old San Juan with the mayor of Yauco, Abel Nazario, as the keynote speaker and Supreme Court Associate Justice Edgardo Rivera Garcia in charge of the reading of the Constitution’s Preamble.

LYRIC

She’s flashing pearls and Adidas
Only turned eighteen last weekend
And she truly believes that
She’s got time on her side
And now it’s four in the morning
And her friend’s in the store
And they take turns in calling
Her higher state of mind

She’s feeling electric baby
Checking the mirror now
She’s about to break some hearts
Gonna fix now baby
One of them passing rounds
Suddenly it all goes dark

There’s something in the water
She’s just somebody’s girl
In Adidas and pearls
But there’s something in the water
She doesn’t need your help
In trying to lose herself

Have a little patience with yourself
You’re not a racehorse, darling
There’s something in the water
She’s just somebody’s daughter

(But there’s something in the water)

(But there’s something in the water)

She’s feeling electric baby
Checking the mirror now
She’s about to break some hearts
Gonna fix now baby
One of them passing rounds
Suddenly it all goes dark

There’s something in the water
She’s just somebody’s girl
In Adidas and pearls
But there’s something in the water
She doesn’t need your help
In trying to lose herself

Have a little patience with yourself
You’re not a racehorse, darling
But there’s something in the water

(But there’s something in the water)

She doesn’t need your help
In trying to lose herself

Have a little patience with yourself
You’re not a racehorse, darling
But there’s something in the water
She’s just somebody’s daughter

All sin is virtue unevolved,    Release the angel from the clod–    Go love thy brother up to God.Behold each problem solved.    All sin is […]
