This weekend i went to a Hispanic Festival at Penns Landing. It was so awesome to see people come together to celebrate what we all have in common, being LATINOS. All Latin cultures were represented there, but in Philly the Puerto Rican culture dominates and you see more of a Puerto Rico overload....lol, which of course it is never enough. Such pride filled the air as people walked from one stand to another looking at artwork, eating our traditional Arroz con Gondules, and dancing to salsa as the band played on.
If someone gave me a choice to be re-born again into another culture or come back as me being Puerto Rican, i would would pick what i am now. I love who i am. I love knowing i am part of a heritage that is full of color, life, rich history, pride and strength. I love our language, our food, our people..soy boricua.
