A Special Father's Day Message from LULAC
Dear LULAC Friends & Family,
My papa , Alberto was 21 years old and a farm worker the day I was born. We did not have much but he taught me to be proud of hard work, nuestra cultura, to speak the truth, and to always stand up for those who were picked on or bullied. I know that we are all living busy lives and always have much to do. So it is wonderful to set aside a special day to spend with the Dads of our families and to celebrate those who still live on in our memories. Happy Father’s Day 2019. Feliz Día de los Padres.
We give thanks to each father who worked hard, many of them in difficult labor jobs to put food on our table and a roof over our heads. To those who served in our armed services, to the many who gave there lives and live in the memories of their sons and daughters.
In so doing may we also remember those Dads who because they have arrived in the United States as refugees seeking asylum, are in detention today away from their families. May the love and cariño of their children and wives give them strength to continue their fight for freedom and the American dream.
Our founding fathers of LULAC are also worthy of our thoughts today on this 90th Anniversary. They who risked their freedom, even their lives to create an organization that would serve for generations to come in ensuring freedom and liberty for all.
From border to border, shore to shore and to our brothers and sisters in Puerto Rico, may the corazón and spirit of LULAC move you forward on this Father’s Day.
May God Bless Your father and May God Bless LULAC.
