December 2017 Please cut and paste: ​​

Dear Family, Primos, and Friends:

Feliz Navidad and a BIG thank you for the wonderful articles, tidbits, communications, and family information that you share with Somos Primos readers. You are all part of helping to show how we are connected to each other through the history.

I am sure that those of you who have been long-time Somos Primos readers, have noticed an increasing percentage of the articles published in Somos Primos, are in Spanish. It is both intentional and needed for our expanded, broader vision of our Spanish heritage in the historic evolution of the world.

Much of the history books on our public library shelves are in English. The perspective is British/Anglo-Saxon. That is the perspective which we are inheriting. However, the Hispanic community and also increasingly numbers of ethnic and racial groups want their story to be included within the history of the United States. Fortunately that is beginning to happen, more and more, even Hispanic/Latinos are finally getting a voice.

However, as long as we depend on the writings and documents in English, we will still not get the broader, global perspective on our ancestors who sailed from Spain, traveled throughout the world, and explored foreign lands on horseback.

Dr. Carlos Campos y Escalante has been searching out little known historical evidence of these far-reaching coasts and adventures, finding them in the writings of Spanish historians.
I am most grateful to Carlos for the information about the martyr Japanese Christians of the 1500s. The information, is a special Christmas gift to me. I knew our ancestors had traveled all over the world to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This information validates the fact.
May you all enjoy a wonderful Merry Christmas, full of love and family fun.

Abrazos, Prima Mimi
