The importance of the Vacations

For the average North American worker the idea of taking vacations has become a complex and unlikely situation for a number of reasons in recent years. Two different organizations, the online web site Skif and Office Team, have found that approximately 40 percent of Americans did not take any vacation days off in 2014.

The challenges of racism and classism

It is not a secret that in this most powerful nation in the world, with a democratic system that’s a model to many nations, the consequences of racism and classism are felt every day, sometimes quietly and sometimes violently. It is imperative to open an honest dialogue about this controversial and important subject. It matters for the health and development of our community. Our leaders and society as a whole, must take up this challenge today without hesitation, so that in the future our children do not become victims of beliefs and misconceptions created in the past.

Los desafíos del racismo y el clasismo

No es para nadie un secreto que en la nación más poderosa del mundo, con una democracia ejemplo para muchas naciones, las consecuencias del racismo y el clasismo de su sociedad se hacen sentir día a día de forma silenciosa y violenta en algunos casos. Es imperativo el diálogo abierto y sincero alrededor de temas tan controversiales e importantes para la salud y el desarrollo de nuestra comunidad. Nuestro líderes y la sociedad en conjunto deben dar ese paso sin vacilar hoy para que en el futuro nuestros hijos no sean víctimas de las creencias e ideas erróneas concebidas en el pasado.

La época decembrina

Llegó la época decembrina la cual trae consigo el espíritu de reconciliación, paz y amor que une a las familias y permite dejar a un lado los sinsabores y las divisiones creadas con las acciones del diario vivir, que en nuestros tiempos pasan a tal velocidad y en ocasiones ni nos percatamos de lo que hemos hecho. La religión católico-cristina nos enseña que Cristo como enviado de Dios vino a vivir con el hombre para estar más cerca de nosotros y compartir sus enseñanzas de amor y fraternidad entre la humanidad, ya que todos somos hijos del mismo Padre: Dios.

The Holiday Season

The Christmas season brings the spirit of reconciliation, peace and love that binds families and lets them put aside conflicts and divisions that sometimes emerge from our frenzied daily lives. Christianity teaches us that Christ was sent by God to live close to humanity and teach mankind love and the brotherhood, as we are all children of one father: God.

Rest in peace

Early in life we learn that we should pay more attention to the present. Today is the gift that has been given to us, because tomorrow is uncertain and guarantees nothing to us.
