Kind words about Hispanic community are appreciated by Criterion reader

Thank you for the kind words that John Valenti wrote about the Hispanic community in his column on Oct. 19.

I was born and raised in Mexico City. I moved to the U.S. after I met my husband, an American, eight years ago.

I have worked as an interpreter for Hispanic families for the last four years, and it is heartbreaking to learn the story of their lives.

It is also amazing and refreshing to see how strong they are. They get this strength from God and the Virgin of Guadalupe as most of us do.

Sadly, it is not very often that I read something positive about my culture. I really appreciate his words. The article put a smile on my face and in my heart. Thank you!
