Environment: Peace and harmony to us all

La historia en la naturaleza
This past month, I spent a lot of time outdoors in places where history was alive. As the days tremble with a bite of cold and the curtains close in sooner than before, it usually forces many inside earlier in the day and more often. I remained resolved to try and fight this notion. My first atte....

Unacceptable public risk in the barrios

Protecting San Gabriel for future generations By President Barack Obama
One hundred and fifty years ago, President Lincoln signed a law that forever changed the way we conserve our natural heritage. It might have seemed an odd thing to do at the time. We were in the middle of the Civil War. The fate of our union hung in the balance. Lincoln himself had never even ....

The tyranny of asthma
Fear is Pati Calzada’s constant companion. Her 6-year old son, Abraham, has asthma, and his frequent attacks fill them both with terror and anguish. “He gets scared and calls me, ‘Mommy!’ And I can hear him wheezing, and he asks me, ‘why can’t I breathe?’ And then I have to calm him down because ....

Mi Abuelito, su jardín, and the outdoors
At twilight hours I think often of my grandfather. When I speak of him it is with great love and appreciation, but I know he was not a perfect man—he was human, fallible. But this also gives me hope, as I am the same. He carted his children and wife from state to state, dirt-floored work camp to ....
