​Somos Primos August 2015

Dear Primos and friends:
Wonderful heritage related projects and events are happening. It appears many of us are feeling a desire to know who we really are, searching and defending our heritage through diverse activities. Finding out that:

"In many ways each of us is the sum total of what our ancestors were. The virtues they had may be our virtues, their strengths our strengths, and in a way their challenges could be our challenges."
(James E. Faust, Ensign, Nov. 2003, pg. 53)

Surely the social challenges of the 19th and 20th century are still with us, and our ancestors faced them also. Probably to a greater degree. Somos Primos seeks out success stories to give us hope that through our efforts, we Latinos can make the world a better place for all.

"We may be of different political persuasions, but one thing we can all agree on, is what is best for our people," Delia Gonzalez Huffman. Delia, retired marketing executive, has set up a website to react to negative media coverage, to facilitate and assist us in protecting our past.

With deep gratitude to readers who continue to support Somos Primos by sending personal stories, extracted articles, and tidbits of information. The diversity of readership is reflected in the varied selection of information that I receive.

Special thanks to Dorinda Moreno who was surely a friend to all in this issue. Dorinda sent 18 pieces, which are scattered throughout the August issue!!

God bless our efforts in sharing historic truth . . .
