Dear Family and Friends:

Hope you all enjoyed some Hispanic Heritage Month activities in
September; we still have two weeks in October to complete our month. It
is nice to identify a time period to ask for recognition of our
heritage. Our population keeps increasing in size and public awareness
is good for all.

You’ll enjoy a map showing the distribution of Latinos in the United
States. Viewing the map made an impact on me.

It turns out that half of all Hispanics/Latinos in the United States
live in California and Arizona, neither of which state has ever had a
Latino United States Senator in Congress.

You’ll find quite a few articles on immigrants and government amnesties.

You’ll enjoy a special article on the Summer Olympics by Mercy Bautista
Olvera on Hispanics who won an Olympic Medal, not only United States
winners, but Hispanics from Spanish speaking countries, Mexico, Puerto
Rico Cuba, Argentina, Colombia, Venezuela, Spain.

A surprise support for Rancho del Sueno came from a song, Soldier’s
Song, sung by David Meza. Do listen to it. It is very touching:
https://youtu.be/XR2EV4B7BLo. The composer, Mel Harker will send a CD
copy to anyone that donates to Rancho del Sueno, the herd of horses
whose DNA ancestry goes back to the earliest horses brought into the
Americas by our Spanish ancestors. Mr. Harker action is in strong
support of Resurrecting Lives whose mission is to help returning
Veterans deal with the traumatic effects of war, a focus of concern and
involvement in which Rancho del Sueno has also been involved.

Thank you Mel, who can be reached at 1 562 477 8575.

The California drought has greatly increased the burden of caring for
the herd.
So a very special thank you to Steve and Jane Shanahan, who applied,
requested and received a large grant from the Nebraska Lincoln Community
Foundation for Rancho del Sueno. Thank you to the Shanahans and
Lincoln Community Foundation.

God bless America, Mimi
