The Corazon Cinema and Cafe was the venue for the 50th Anniversary Vietnam War Commemoration Ceremony. The keynote Speaker was LT COL (RET) Barry Bridger, who was a prisoner at the Hanoi Hilton for over 6 years. His message was powerful and thought provoking. Authorized by Congress, established under the Secretary of Defense, and launched by the President in May 2012, the Vietnam War Commemoration recognizes all men and women who served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces from Nov. 1, 1955 to May 15, 1975. Nine million Americans served during this period, and the Commemoration makes no distinction between Veterans who served in-country, in-theater, or were stationed elsewhere during those 20 years. All answered the call of duty. This year NCA will participate in honoring Vietnam Veterans during the week of March 23 – March 31, 2019. During the event there was a presentation of Certificates of Honor.
Great energy in show 4, with our guests, author and filmmaker Derek Hankerson, Flager College ACE Program Jorge Herrera, and our musical guest lead singer from Paco Lipps, Victoria Romero. Show was catered by La Herencia Cafe.
St Augustine, as one of the oldest continuously occupied cities in the United States, is home to a rich history, diverse culture and cosmopolitan values. It is a befitting place for the Festival of Chariots which was held, as one of the oldest continuously held multicultural festivals in the world. In these times of uncertainty between nations, races, classes and cultures, a common platform for equality is needed, to inspire humanity towards peace, freedom and friendship.
The Festival of Chariots (Rathayatra) is the celebration of inviting into people’s hearts the Lord of the Universe (Sri Krishna – the All-Attractive One / Sri Jagannatha – the Master of the Universe) of Whom we are all a part. By offering a little service to the Lord, we can awaken our dormant love for Him within us. By watering the root of the tree all the branches are nourished. Similarly when service is given to the Lord of the Universe, all living beings become satisfied. This is known as Bhakti-Yoga, connection to the Lord through devotional service. By singing, dancing, cooking, feasting, decorating and having meaningful discussions about the glories and beauty of the Lord and His presence in our lives, we find a common platform for achieving peace, friendship and lasting happiness.
Chariots comes from the cultural heart of India, this ancient Ratha Yatra festival is an offering they bring to beautiful beaches, campuses and parades across Northern Florida.
