HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!
Hola Latinopians! Hope you’re having a great Father’s Day. We celebrate El Dia De Los Padres with two videos this week. Author Sarah Rafael García remembers her dad in a touching poem, ”In All My Memories.” Our Latinopia blogger Ricardo Acuña also remembers his dad in a special video, “Las Manos de mi Padre.” Check out these moving and tender remembrances of fathers and how they shape who we become. Latinopia hopes all of you are remembering your fathers in a very special way this week.
In the midst of a lot of bad news about how Latinos are being treated in our country, we have some good news about a Latino victory! Sal Baldenegro weighs in with his Political Salsa y Más blog with a report about a recent victory for La Raza in Tucson, Arizona. We’ll let Sal explain it all in his blog, but for those of you who want to know more about the El Rio Park in Tucson, Arizona, check out the adjacent Latinopia Event 1970 El Rio Park video.
We welcome a guest blogger this week, attorney Irene Daniel (that’s pronounced Dah-knee-él). A second-generation Mexican American originally from Arizona, Irene has her own blog site (http://theidpostblog.blogspot.com/ ). Irene offers here a thoughtful reflection on the ties that bind us all together as Americans. Check out her concept of “hearth,” it’s pesado! Latinopia is proud to showcase this insightful commentary and we hope to be hearing more from Irene in the months to come.
And speaking of Father’s day, our boy Lazaro De La Tierra has his hands full dealing with the disturbing revelation that he may be the son of arch villain and no-good-nick zombie Juan De Oñate. This casues him to ask the questions: “Who is my father?” We are also posting Lazaro’s Father’s Day blog from a year ago which will inform this week’s episode, and remind us of how far we have come in this weekly zombie blog series. Hay estos zombies, púes! Can’t live with them, can’t live without them!
We have another great Angela Ortiz photo in her blog, Photo of the Week, this time Angela treats us with a shot of the classic First Street Bridge in Los Angeles. And be sure to see Sergio Hernández’s cartoon commentary on Father’s Day.
As always, there’s lots on Latinopia this week. Tell your friends and…
