“In a way, they are a lot like the immigrants who came here in the 1700s, who built our great country into what it is today.”
I am a BBCphile. So imagine to my surprise to read a well written and researched article about who we are in the U.S.! Yeah! So refreshing to be portrayed in fairly. With paragraphs like:
The young girls slip long dresses of fuchsia and aquamarine over T-shirts and shorts, swishing and swirling them in time to the beat. The teenage boys, solemn in concentration, join in, stepping and stamping, hands clasped behind their backs.
Lyrically creating a sense of the importance of keeping our culture alive. Only to add some real meat:
“The richness of our culture is not just music and dance, but who we are,” Margarita Solorcano, the director of the dance project, tells me. Living here, we have a lot to learn, but we also have a lot to teach, like the family unit, the sense of community, the loyalty to our traditions.”
Please read the rest of the article to be refreshed: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-22578183
