What will you do while the world is at war?

An Opportunity to Grow

Our Country is at war. Whether you are for or against it, our nation is the greatest nation in the world in which to live.

Given that, I am not going to spend time convincing you that war is either good or bad, but rather to ask you personally to consider how you will use your time during this time of difficulty in our nation's history.

We as Latinos, as Americans, have an awesome responsibility to be personally responsible for our lives. Instead of being paralyzed by war across the seas, let's stand up and live our lives committed to our dreams and continue moving forward.

What a waste it would be for our mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters to die fighting a war for our freedom and all we do is stay glued to our television sets.

Support our troops and our country and be a living memorial to the basic foundation of our great country: The Freedom to live the American Dream.

Accept your greatness and the greatness of our country and keep dreaming big.
