[Elizondo:2811] Somos Primos November 2013 158th Online Issue


Dear Primos and Friends:

May your heart and life be filled with gratefulness for your many blessings of family and friends.  The six-hour documentary, Latino Americans has surely given visibility to our varied, yet connected histories.  We have leaders whose stories were finally told; but we have thousands of others who have dedicated their lives, to nurturing and uplifting those around them, whose stories have not been told. I invite you all to do so.

You may want to interview your parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, or someone who has made an impact on your life, someone who taught you a skill, or shared a value, or concept which has guided you. I invite you all to send in your thoughts. We are not looking at or for writing skills, we are looking for stories reflecting us, Latino Americans, in all our diversity.

In this issue you will see one of the changes which 2014 will bring: CUENTOS, personal, first hand family stories will be scattered throughout the issues, based on where the incidences took place. I was hoping that it would increase networking and help stir familiar memories.

I have also included a category of FICTION/NON-FICTION for those that would like to share stories based on true experiences, but with adjustments or additions for more dramatic impact or privacy.  Louis F. Serna, sent a page from the journal of a fictitious Spanish soldier,  My Days as a Colonist/Soldier with Don Juan de Onate - Part 1 by Louis F. Serna.

Each of us may think that we do not have enough personal stories to write a book, but we all have some memories that are special to us, for some reason.  That reason may touch someone else's heart, and uplift them.  For the December issue, I invite you all to send a personal Christmas memory via an email.  . . length, a half a page to 3 pages, who, what, when.

God bless, Mimi
