Within this writing I connect my research endeavours of Hispanic / Spanish heritage with the MLB World Series Championship Tournament. The beauty of research is when we are able to see it come to life with its practical element, thus to create and contribute to the social good of society. It is with these words I offer my congratulations to the Houston Astros for their American League Division Series (ALDS) 2021 win!!! And my good-thoughts to all the teams within the MLB World Series Championship 2021!!! All the best and thank you for our proud baseball history as well as history in the making!!!

Within this writing I offer my support to the First Lady of Florida Casey DeSantis as we learn of her Breast Cancer diagnosis, to include the strength and support of women in the political arena including: Speaker of the United States House of Representatives: Nancy Patricia Pelosi, Britain’s former Prime-Minister Margaret Hilda Thatcher (1925-2013) and the first Cuban America ever elected to congress, Republican Ros-Lehtinen. Thank you for your inspiration that encourages the strength of a woman particularly in political life and to all who encourage the strength of a woman.
Within this writing I reflect upon a recent documentary that aired on ABC’s Soul of Nation as a special for Hispanic / Spanish Heritage Month.

Thank you to everyone involved in putting together this documentary!!!

A point of view (POV) with the continuation of thoughts from the American withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan.
Within this writing I reflect to provide a summary of “Chapter 13 New York, ca. 1920s-’60s” from the book entitled “EL NORTE” I found this chapter refreshing to learn of the evolutions and blending of cultural infusions with arts, poetry and dance. Puerto Rican, Cuban and Spanish migration to New York led to the creation of the idea of Hispanidad, that aimed to create a shared Latin American cultural heritage.
