It’s that time of the year again when the weather gets a little bit cooler in the evening hours, the days become shorter, the leaves begin to change color and fall, the start of a new school year, and warm savory pumpkin spice coffee is the flavor of the season. All the changes are welcoming during the waning days of summer, they are trademark reminders of the autumn season, and is the backdrop to Hispanic Heritage Month.
Hispanic Heritage month is here. In an ever changing world the spirit of the holiday is the same and more alive than ever. The recognition of Hispanic culture, contributions and influences is the cornerstone of the month-long observances.
From September 15 to October 15 we celebrate numerous Latin American nations, for some their independence day, Hispanic and Latin American cultures, traditions, contributions to the world along with prominent Hispanic figures who have contributed to the arts, education, entertainment, science, social, political, activism, and Hispanic communities.
In the world of today there are many influences and trends that have emerged from Latin roots. The vastness of the Hispanic outreach is massive and ever growing, especially in the United States. In fashion, the vibrant colors, embroidery and handmade products from Latin American nations is a bold cultural statement many wear to enhance their own individuality. In the arts and entertainment realms, the music, films, and visual arts move us with passion and a transcending energy, a Hispanic and Latin vibe that opens the heart, mind and soul. In the social and political ring Latin and Hispanic voices have emerged as bold voices, dominant and influential for all. Even in business, education, entrepreneurship, science and engineering the Latin and Hispanic figures have proven to be innovators of commerce, educating and building a new place for all that is sustainable and unique in both the digital and physical world.
There are many reasons to celebrate Hispanic Heritage month this year as we move forward together into a brighter future with the essence of Hispanic history, culture and traditions. We are all different, but with our differences we can change the world as one. The Latin and Hispanic people are different and unique in their own individual way, a way they want to share with the world. Together we celebrate the beauty of Hispanic Heritage moth.
Love what you do, do what you love.
