• THIS ADVENT SEASON OVERFLOWS WITH THINGS TO DO AND KNOW

  • Acusado

    Sólo 4 presidentes en la historia de los Estados Unidos -Andrew Johnson, Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton y Donald Trump- han sido formalmente acusados como parte de un proceso de “impeachment”, un mecanismo ideado por los fundadores de este país para castigar a los servidores públicos bajo la sospecha de...
  • HAVE THE COURAGE TO SPEAK UP

    “Having the courage to speak against prevailing opinion in civil strife is often greater than that demanded on the battlefield” is a statement made by Oliver Wendell Holmes (1809-1894).

  • El viaje de un soñador

    Osmán López es un “dreamer” que vive en la frontera entre la realización de los sueños de toda su vida y la inminencia de una pesadilla personal y familiar. A los 15 años llegó a los Estados Unidos con una maleta llena de ilusiones y de las memorias de...
  • INCLUSIVE FAMILILES BECOME EXTENDED FAMILIES

    Now that November 11th Veteran’s Day has been celebrated appropriately, it is time to think about one’s family becoming a more inclusive extended family. This is in preparation for Thanksgiving Day family reunion get-togethers as a first step (regardless of long-term disagreements).
