@jyotsnagopinath What a powerful way to look at the produce aisle. We are often so far removed from our food and don't always remember how hard someone worked to get it to our table.

http://www.brookings.edu/blogs/education-plus-development/posts/2013/09/27-reshaping-edu-innovation-latin-america-zinny This article is explaining the need for improvements in the education system in Latin America. Many students are not finishing school and are in need of better education to have bright futures. It is not simply maintaining the education they already have, but bettering it with better programs and teachers. Euginio Severin explains how it will take help from many other parts of the world to improve this education system, but it is necessary for the upcoming generations in Latin America.

The issue of immigration is said to be over powering many other issues that are relevant in the Latino community. According to the article, "only 15% of the Latino Community is affected by immigration reform." This shows that there are several other issues going unnoticed and are not getting their due time. Based upon a surgery given to the Latino Community, the top here issues of most importance are Education, Jobs and the Economy, and Healthcare. This is not to say that immigration reform should be pushed away, but rather let there be a balance between all so that all issues can begin to be solved. Also, because of the fact that most people advocating for the issues amongst Latinos are young, savvy, and optimistic, hope and action is being restored amongst the population for generations to come.

@brittanylatigue this article really puts a human face on the immigration issue. We often don't think about how policies impact people so directly.

Nick: I read your article about the capture of another cartel leader. It is always good to read things like these because these cartels tend to have a lot of power in Mexico. Not only do they affect the flow of drugs and guns, but sometimes they affect the government and politics. I didn't know another cartel leader had been captured and it was an interesting read

@Aukai15 this article wasn dry interesting in the way that it related the shooting of this this man to what happened in Ferguson. It was also very interesting to hear that there have been three police shootings here since July

@Katietoy It's good to see the education system in Latin American improving. Although there is still room for improvement at least there is a push for reform. It is essentials for people to realize th need for a better education system.

Roy: I agree that this is a big victory. For the Mexican people and their government. The war on drugs has been going on for too long and needs to be put to and end. It is great to see that they are making advances and cracking down on their issues.

@mariahvasquez This article is really sad because it shows how much harsh immigration rules are ripping families apart. Families that don't deserve to be separated are facing harsh punishment as parents see their children taken away from them. This article proves that there needs to be a stop to this because innocent children are facing negative consequences for no reason.
