As a Hispanic Latina who rose from a poverty-stricken world subscribing to guiding-life superstitions, I’ve been summarily called-upon to serve as a cultural diplomat.  I have always tightly held one core belief: fairness through social justice.  My son now breathes that stridently-held sense of fairness swelling my heart with pride.
