Jul 19, 2017 DENNIS HOPPER “THE LOST ALBUM”

Dakota Romero joins Historic Global Women’s March

New York, New York: ETE recording artist Dakota Romero marched today in New York City for Women’s Rights, Human Rights, and the Rights Of Indigenous Peoples and Mother Earth.

USA TODAY WASHINGTON — More than 2 million people across the world, led by hundreds of thousands who overwhelmed the nation’s capital, protested the first full day of President Trump’s tenure Saturday.

What began as a Facebook post by a Hawaii grandmother the day after Hillary Clinton’s loss in November’s election blossomed into a massive protest uniting people of all ages, races and religions who crowded downtown Washington. They called for a “revolution” as a bulwark against the new administration and the Republican-led Congress they fear will roll back reproductive, civil and human rights.

THE CAPTIVATING RITA ROGERS

Born Ida May Aragon January 10, 1937 in The Land Of Enchantment, Rita Rogers was an exotic and talented dark-eyed beauty. Her courageous spirit, love and positive energy inspired all who came in contact with her.

On June 11, 2012, Rita passed peacefully in the home of her son, Robby Romero encircled with family and prayer.

“My mother began her transition to the Spirit World in ceremony that ended with her journey song; like a mystical shooting star she gracefully left this world right on cue.”   – Robby Romero
