August 17, 2017 Barcelona Terrorist Attack
This is so absolutely wrong and shame on all the people who knew about these plans and didn’t tell the authorities. Barcelona is one of the world’s truly great cosmopolitan cities and Spain is extremely respectful of its Muslin heritage.
We have been to Spain and twice to Barcelona, even staying on La Rambia. La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona may be the most emotionally stirring structure ever created by humans.

EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK
(PERSONA EXTRAORDINARIA DE LA SEMANA)
Isabella I (22 April 1451 – 26 November 1504) was Queen of Castile. She was married to Ferdinand II of Aragon. Their marriage became the basis for the political unification of Spain under their grandson, Holy Roman Emperor Charles V.
After a struggle to claim her right to the throne, she reorganized the governmental system, brought the crime rate to the lowest it had been in years, and unburdened the kingdom of the enormous debt her brother had left behind. Her reforms and those she made with her husband had an influence that extended well beyond the borders of their united kingdoms.
Isabella and Ferdinand are known for completing the Reconquista, ordering conversion or exile of their Muslim and Jewish subjects in the Spanish Inquisition, and for supporting and financing Christopher Columbus’ 1492 voyage and to the establishment of Spain as the first global power which dominated Europe and much of the world for more than a century.
Isabella was granted the title Servant of God by the Catholic Church in 1974.
