A moment to acknowledge the great contribution of our customs, traditions and hard work to this country.
Latinos arrived to the United States with goals and dreams. Over the years, this country becomes our home away from homeland. What makes this nation great is the diversity that houses and that is largely due to the millions of people who have come from Spanish-speaking countries.
How it began?
The celebration began in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 making it a celebration of a full month. The law states that every year for a period of one month should be held.
The day of the start of Hispanic Heritage month is significant as it coincides with the anniversary of the independence of several Latin American countries such as Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Mexico and Chile likewise celebrate their independence during this month.
In Washington DC, the capital city, there will be many celebrations as part of the month. Also the whole country joins celebrate with dancing, food and music. It is an excellent opportunity to draw attention to the great contributions of Hispanics to the United States, but above all, educate. For these reasons, today more than ever we must celebrate our roots and Hispanic pride.
