Who are you proud of? Who do you credit for helping you build your foundation?
This lovely email from Tania Cruz, one of my readers, reminds us that in order to truly appreciate today, we must honor the yesterdays that came before us:
"My dad and my uncles came frome El Salvador during their civil war. Ever since I was old enough to understand what they went through, it amazes me. The things I have learned and how hard they work to have a better life makes them my latino heros."
Happy Hispanic Heritage Month, my friends. May your personal celebrations continue each and every day.
