THIS BLOG WAS BIRTHED FROM “GANAS” AND A PASSION TO INSPIRE MY FELLOW LATINOS…SI SE PUEDE!
Thehispanicblog.com launched nationally to galvanize a movement that inspires Latinos to register and get out the vote. It’s a tool designed to pique curiosity and captivate a person in such a way they want to be engaged. It’s geared to motivate the spark that kindles intellectual passion about the issues that plague our people. It’s a gateway to explore and discover the extraordinarily courageous Latino icons of yesterday and highlight the signature leaders of today. It magnifies our breakthrough presence and performances in Entertainment proving to the younger generations that their dreams can be made manifest. It yields Marketing updates of savvy corporations that dauntlessly invest their dollars because they recognize that in the U.S. alone our purchasing power has surged and surpassed a trillion dollars; a colossal figure equivalent to the fifteenth greatest economy in the world.
Yet in spite of this mind boggling assessment, many of us still suffer from a “defeated mentality” we tend to inherit. For example, many believe that our vote does not count because individually we cannot determine the next election. But what we fail to recognize is that when we do vote, then every politician will know the name of every Latino that voted. When we add just one more vote to the “overall Latino vote,” then that number adds up and that’s what matters.
Like most Latinos, I grew up in a pit and not the palace, and my grades were definitely not a reflection of my genius, but my determination and relentlessness were. Through grants and scholarships, I was able to receive my International Business degree at 21 and with my great faith in God I moved to Miami. My mind was shifted, and I stepped out of my comfort zone and into my called place where I started possessing and walking in who I am. For me, it was my faith in Jesus that made me realize that I was born to do great things. I challenge the system and it changes; I don’t live frustrated, I live activated! I had to experience it, so I could transform it! I never saw myself as a victim to my circumstances because I knew that I knew that I was a child of destiny. Then unexpectedly, I stumbled upon a new world beyond anything I ever imagined or deemed possible. I was working with celebrities, jet setting around the world, and even meeting with President Obama! I am living proof that our mind determines who we are, what we can do and what we can have!
“Latinos, let this be the day we become immune to fear and blinded to the possibility of failure. Let this be the day we take inventory on ourselves and recognize that our value is established by our ability to render service to our community, and in turn induce others to render such services. Let this be the day we CEASE divisions among our peoples, and SEIZE the moment for all of our peoples! Let this be the day we dare to inspire, elevate self-respect and contribute to every person’s worth striving to set the bar higher and higher for ourselves, for our children and for our children’s children. Let this be the moment we recognize that in union there is strength but as individuals we are powerless. Let us make the definite decision to put our minds and hearts together in such a way tremendous power is ignited! A power so forceful, like an incandescent fire accelerating fearlessly into the night that in the heat of a moment and without warning, a LATINO REVOLUTION IS BORN!!!” -Jessica Marie Gutierrez
“I am American free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, and free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind!”
