Dear Primos and Friends:

If you attend events celebrating Hispanic Month,September 15 to October 15, I encourage you share the experience with Somos Primos. Don't feel intimidated, a short little article and a photo or two is just fine.

What Somos Primos is trying to convey is the Latino presence all over the United States and world. Gratefully, it is the involvement and contributions of readers that is accomplishing that goal.

Thank you for your submissions, for finding and sending fascinating articles and tidbits. It such fun to open my emails and read what is happening.

God bless America, Mimi
