A Time for Celebration and Reflection

By: Ashmar Mandou

 Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Local NewsAs September 16 approaches, Mexican and Mexican-Americans will honor their roots, culture, and tradition through various forms of celebration. It is also a time in which to reflect and pay homage to ancestors who have strayed from the beaten path to bring equality to light and current leaders who carry their community in high regards no matter where life takes them. In this issue we celebrate the achievements of U.S. Treasurer Rosie Rios, City Clerk Susana Mendoza, Berwyn Mayor Robert Lovero, State Representative Lisa Hernandez, and the Benito Juarez muralists who gave the Mexican-American community a symbol of pride and optimism, which can be viewed at lawndalenews.com. We hope their message of hope inspires you. On behalf of the Lawndale Bilingual Newspaper, we wish the Mexican and Mexican-American community a Happy Independence Day.
