Hispanics have highlighted the beauty of diversity in our country. They bring the richness of their culture, customs and traditions to the United States, and what a joy it is to be able to indulge their many delicious foods, music, dances, and other traditions. This month certainly gave me the opportunity to reflect upon our family and how we celebrate our culture with love and pride of our heritage. As Puerto Ricans, we have the privilege of being simultaneous citizens of the United States and the Caribbean island. Our family was blessed with celebrating and embracing both our American and Hispanic cultures.
Today, I was inspired by the many posts and blogs I read about the celebratory activities taking place in honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month. We started by enjoying Chicharrones (Pork Rinds) and Papa Relleno (Potato balls filled with meat).
We are as blended as families come and we love it! My husband is a proud native Jamaican, I am a proud American/ Puerto-Rican, and my 13 year-old son, Richie, has autism. Acceptance and diversity resonates with our family's theme: "One love, One heart." The great Bob Marley couldn't have put it any better.
Buen Provecho (Bon Appetite) and Happy National Hispanic Heritage Month!
