Mi Comunidad...Mi Orgullo...



Pa'lante...siempre pa'lante...I hear the elders calling

for a change in the way we raise our youth...

With every ebb and flow of the ocean they plead for us

to take a stand for peace and justice.

May we look into "el corazon de la cultura Latina"...

and listen to every beat say, "pa'lante, pa'lante sin cesar!"

 

Walking in faith to a future unknown...

Yo soy mi madre when I call my sons to stand tall,

I am mi padre when I feel injustice rise before me,

I am Boriqua when I sleep...

I dream of a future where our sons & daughter can always stand tall & proud

 

En la sangre lo llevo.. orgulloso por ser   "Latino"

En el futuro lo veo, la buen vida y el destino.

Ll ega el cambio que nos espera, mi hijo

En este mundo que vivemos, este mundo tan frio...

 


Española, Taina, Africana comiendo arroz con habichuelas,

pernil, chuleta, y un poco de mavi....

yo si tengo sabor de mi raza que nacio boriqueña!

 

My pride is generated from the spirits of my ancestors

and the will of the Orishas who guide me..

The Love for my people is like the earth hugging my soul

as the sun embraces my body with its warmth...

 


Latino is one of the richest ethnicities. Also one of the most complex.


As a teen, I practiced a lie, acting non-Latino, without hesitation,

but my roots were strong and made me come to my senses...


Destroy your television sets because Hollywood has a long history that forgets..

Let's reinvent ourselves, let that be the wealth of our community chest.

 


A legacy of achievement in bypassing social taboo

No matter what you look like my cousin looks like you.

 


Evolving with each heartbeat and refusing to blend in with the facet of ignorance

We rise above with substabce as one people together.

With corazon and sazon we wave our souls as one flag forever.

 






We are Latinos from Central America, Mexico, the Carribean and South America.

Let us excel & educate ourselves. We as Latinos will continue to grow.

 

y hasta el ultimo suspiro...

 

SOMOS LATINOS!

 

PUNTO!!!
