Your Voice, Your Vote. Can Make A Difference.

It’s time to vote in the United States. Do what you must to get to the polls. Many of us have already voted by mail, so help others that may need help. Make your decision by voting who supports your beliefs, your values, and your needs. Respect the opinions, beliefs, and the rights of all people. As U.S. citizens we have responsibilities to support and defend the Constitution. Be active in learning about the issues in your community. As people living in the U.S., we must respect the laws to maintain order in society. Engage in your community to see how you can support those who are actively working for your benefit.

Mandatory duties of a U.S. citizen are obeying the laws, serve on a jury, males at 18 years old must register with the Selective Service, pay taxes, vote, and complete the Census questionnaire.

Other responsibilities include supporting the Constitution, stay informed of issues in your community, respect the rights, beliefs, and opinions of others. As informed and productive citizens we should be informative starting with our family and extended family and friends having discussions on the neighborhood needs. Volunteer and engage in efforts that inspire you. Offer support those who can be trusted and who work for you and your community.

Because Sharing Can Inspire Change

With the holidays quickly approaching, just thinking about the preparations can overwhelm us - family visits, getting dinner together, sleeping arrangements, decorations, drinking glasses, a new rug, new curtains, and maybe changing the shower curtain. Did everyone have a great time during last year’s festivities or were there some incidents that may still be in the air?

For some folks it’s the loneliness and depression, the memories of past holidays, family and friends who are now gone.

It’s easy to say, “enjoy the rush – it’s fun anxiety, look forward and not back.” For some of us it isn’t that simple, but we can use popular tools for managing stress with an extra bit of umph! Check it out.



Order early for the holidays. Surprise a friend or loved one with a carry-all tote bag!

IN OUR CULTURA, hay un dicho que dice, "el que a buen árbol se arrima,
buena sombra le cobija."


Fall is a time for recharging, reflecting and enjoying nature. As we wrap up the chaos of the last two years, it's time to look forward to better days ahead.

“"If you have a dream, don’t let anybody take it away."
– Selena Quintanilla
