Dear Latin American community,
On the occasion of the celebration of Latin American Heritage Month, I send you a big greeting on behalf of the Casa Cultural Colombiana. I share with you the letter that the Prime Minister of Canada Hon. Justin Trudeau has sent to all Latin Americans.
And as the prime minister mentioned, pluralism strengthens us as a nation, for this, I want to make an invitation not only to celebrate but also to take active participation in the preservation of that cultural legacy that identifies us as a unique ethnic group within pluralism that allows the growth of identity as individuals with their own values, beliefs, and customs with roots that grow and intertwine to make us stronger.
Insertion within pluralism does not mean the abandonment of Latin American identity, on the contrary, coexistence as different ethnic groups brings wealth and strengthens the spirit, it is okay to adopt changes necessary for coexistence and development, but always with the intention of preserving their authenticity and integrity. I remind you that it is our responsibility to ensure the preservation and continuity of this cultural heritage.
The Latin American contribution in Canadian society must continue to grow and explore other fields of incidence that are achieved through education, training, and commitment that manifest the clear sense of the Latin American community to participate and intervene in the future of Canada, we need more representation In political and educational fields, we must seek more international agreements and treaties that favor the performance of Latin American professionals in different economic-social fields.
In conclusion, I want to congratulate you for your resilient spirit, your strength, and creativity, qualities that are very representative of that fighting identity of Latin Americans, and that in these difficult times has served as a stick to continue forward with your head held high, with a dose of optimism-realism that will surely lead us to find prosperous paths in the midst of this pandemic. Take good care of yourselves, a big hug.
