We have the right, as written in the Constitution, “to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.”
 
The fact is, the journey to form “a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, (and) promote the general welfare” has not always been an easy one.
 
Along the way to secure all the people's civil rights, there were rough patches of discrimination, insensitivity and downright meanness as we attempted to secure our piece of the American Dream and survive in this United States.
 
After the violence, the lynchings  - and, in the case of the Mexico-Tejano, the loss of land and property - De facto discrimination took the form of home loan denials, school segregation and lack of access to higher education. We all  felt the weight of having to prove again and again that we, too, were worthy of a diploma, degree or job – even a simple meal at a restaurant.  
 
It is incumbent upon us to  honor that struggle and never forget that freedom is not free and that we must always be vigilant to protect our civil rights. Ever since 1929, the League of United Latin American Citizens has been  there for us, our country. We are still needed. The fight goes on and we are still here.
