Thank you for writing this blog! It's a great little recap of what we've been celebrating this past month.

As Hispanic Heritage Month comes to an end, I hope everybody had a great time learning about the culture and sharing their accomplishments with the community!

It's such a wonderful time to share and gain knowledge. It's also a great time to be aware of the issues facing the community and what we can do about them.

For example, right now, there's one influential Hispanic who's doing just that.
