que bonita bandera.

soy boricua para que lo sepas.

puertorriqueña.

de la isla.

a comer pasteles ….arroz con gandules…

la salsa.

guayaba y queso de papa.

coqui.

y para que llorar pa’ que.

p.s. These are some words and lyrics that captivate Puerto Rico in my world, especially in honor of today’s 60th anniversary of the National Puerto Rican Day Parade in New York City. I’m very proud to be Puerto Rican, and blessed to have been to Puerto Rico several times. I love that I have roots in an island where my grandparents grew up, and that in the past 6 years, have taken time to truly dedicate myself to learning the Spanish language. Here’s to that! Que viva Puerto Rico para siempre!
