TIL ❤ [Heart] Transmission, v. 1


by Samantha Anne Carrillo

Postmodern human culture is inextricably intertwined with social media. Things in Light's ❤ Transmission series will aggregate and spotlight New Mexican people, places, art, music and events that I heart/'like'/retweet/etc. I call Albuquerque home, but anything and everyone within the Land of Enchantment is the TIL ❤ Transmission beat.

I'm always looking for opportunities to learn more about the state we're in. Reader feedback is actively encouraged. Email me at carrillo.samantha.anne@gmail.com or message me on Facebook [facebook.com/samanthaannenm] to hype the aspects of nuevomexicano history and culture that resonate with you.

Publisher's note: The savage murder of 10-year-old Victoria Martens is a fresh wound in Albuquerque's communal psyche. The brutality of Martens' death (and her all-too-brief life) is impossible to fully comprehend. We can, however, understand the structural causes for New Mexico's child well-being rank of 49th ... and we can do better. Our state is currently Number 6 for deaths resulting from child abuse.

Things in Light's warmest thoughts and deepest sympathies are with Victoria Martens' friends and loved ones. Her family and our society failed Victoria, and child abuse is preventable. Honor her memory by redirecting your natural urge toward vengeance into support of evidence-based solutions to child abuse in New Mexico.

For example, home visitation programs employ a registered nurse to provide educational and training-based support to parents, thus reducing child abuse and maltreatment. To learn more about our state's child abuse prevention program, visit nmcapp.unm.edu. For a more personal gesture of support, consider donating to a GoFundMe campaign for the college fund of Matthew, Victoria's 8-year-old brother.

On with the ❤!

Unknown / a fifth-wave feminist from the fourth estate | a burqueรฑa | a ladyboss | a writer + editor

I am a fifth-wave feminist and a reluctant member⸺hey, Groucho knew whereof he quipped⸺of both the fourth estate and the gig economy. I am an Albuquerque-based freelance writer, editor and social media marketing and branding+PR consultant. I remain an observant ’90s riot grrrl and a devout practitioner of halfhearted yoga posturing and zen and the art of the sentence diagram.
