The heat of the Texas sunshine could hardly overpower the warmth radiating from students and teachers in this diverse state. Texas’ initiative to move toward dual-language education is a huge step toward forging unity in our country. I feel so fortunate to have had the chance to share what being bilingual means to me and see children light up with enthusiasm about the opportunities it gives them as well. Thank you Mount Sacred Heart, Mary Magdalen, Notre Dame, St. Mary’s, St. Anthony’s, Holy Name, Our Lady of Grace, Harris Public Library, St. Austin’s and Casa de Ninos Montessori for receiving me with such hospitality! Your students’ openness, passion for learning, innovative dreams and commitment to ending bullying by valuing each person illumine hope for the future of our country and world.
