"¡Bienvenidos a nacersano y a la familia de March of Dimes!" are some of the welcoming words one might find when encountering the spank brand new, re-launched Spanish-language March of Dimes website; a site that's geared toward providing valuable, life-saving information to Latina mothers and would-be mother who're concerned about loss due to premature labor or birth defects.
Romeo and Juliet, and Tristan and Isolde are accessible (fictional) examples that may come to mind, but the history books –and succeeding web pages– are lush with examples of Latin couples who’ve affected history by being revolutionary, dynamic, passionate, and/or the talk-of-the-time.
From scoring a touchdown in the Super Bowl, to becoming first-time dads upon the births of their daughters in 2012, Victor Cruz and Aaron Hernandez do indeed share some things in common. Both seemed destined to spearhead the NFL's effort to market itself to Latin Americans domestically and abroad. That's only half-true now.
Thanksgiving, otherwise known as "El Dia de las Gracias" or "Feliz Dia de Accion de Gracias" in Spanish, is not only a time to show off your culinary skills and be surrounded by with the ones you love, but for many Latinos in the U.S., it's a time to be thankful for many of life's blessings.
