Hispanic Heritage Month

Quote of the Day

Hola a todos, 

This week, we will continue to celebrate Hispanic heritage month with a quote from Rigoberta Menchu who is a Nobel Peace Prize recipient from Guatemala who devoted her life to working for rights for the indigenous community following the Guatemalan war. She once said:

“Este mundo no cambiará a menos que estemos dispuestos a cambiar nosotros mismos.”

The world will not change unless we are willing to change ourselves.
