Interesting Facts
George Bush said
  • Hispanic Americans have enriched the American
    way of life, and by designating this month, we
    attempt to recognize the millions of Hispanic
    Americans whose love of family, hard work, and
    community have helped unite us as a people and
    sustain us as a Nation. As entrepreneurs and
    public servants, scholars and artists, Hispanic
    Americans have provided wisdom, energy, and
    leadership to our communities, and to our
    country. We also remember those Hispanics who
    established the vibrant and diverse American
    cities of Los Angeles, San Francisco, Santa Fe,
    San Antonio, and many others. We remember those
    who were instrumental in exploring and mapping
    our great hemisphere and we honor those proud
    Hispanic-American patriots who fought and died
    for our country in every war and conflict since
    our founding.
