13 Jul - I just wanted to say how happy I am for the Latino's. They have come a long way. It just proves that if you fight hard enough you can accomplish almost anything. I am sure that Ricky had some turn downs in his career as well as Gloria Estefan, and Selena and many other singer/actors, but they set a goal and achieved that goal. In my opinion they set a good example for the younger generation out there, to work hard and set goals for yourself and you will see results. Keep up the good work! Thank you.
