Good Thursday friends! Today in La Voz with Mariel Fiori is a day of entertainment. I passed on several ideas for activities for the weekend.

I also talked to Barbara Sarah about a topic that we avoid talking about, but with the reality of the pandemic, it is more urgent than ever: preparing for death. Sarah is a retired Kingston social worker, cancer survivor, founder and director of an oncology patient program at Health Alliance, started in 1994. She also helped create the Circle of Friends for the Dying program, and hundreds of people have attended the meetings called Death Cafes for the past 7 years. Sarah is considered a pioneer of these issues in Kingston, and one of the volunteers who is part of the concept of creating a home for people who are at the end of their life. A suggestion: fill out the five wishes form and give it to your family and GP. Starting Friday, July 31, a virtual series begins on the theme of death, mourning and COVID-19, in English. More information about the organization's programs on their website.

In addition, in Let's Meet the Radio Kingston, we met the Puerto Rican Sebastián Rodríguez Delgado, a member of the station's technical team and a lover of comics.

Today we heard the story of the singer Alaska, as well as the account Annuska Angul, Yaiza Santos and Tanya Huntington about their book Lives Without Borders, 51 Stories to Tear Down Walls.
