With all the differences among Latinos in America, is there a collective goal? Are there ideological principles we can rely on, an aesthetic we can emanate and replicate for future generations? We did not get here by ourselves. There is a social contract with our ancestors we must fulfill if we wish to achieve true success and prosperity.
