Hispanic Heritage Month

Quote of the Day

Hola a todos, 

This week, we continue to celebrate Hispanic Heritage month with a quote from

from the Hispanic musician Shakira who is world famous for her music.  She once said, 

“Siento un verdadero sentido del deber de usar la voz y la plataforma que me ha dado mi fama para hablar por aquellos cuyas voces no tienen la oportunidad de ser escuchado.”

I feel a real sense of duty to use the voice and the platform I've been afforded by my fame to speak out for those whose voices don't get a chance to be heard.
