Latinos Help To Build Our Cities, Too.

This headline is real and is troubling and this grief is even more heart wrenching:

crane25n-3-web2 Years, 31 Dead Construction Workers. New York Can Do Better.

Not only can NY do better but NY can also praise those Latino workers who have given their lives to build our cities while trying in earnest to provide for their families.

I call them the unknown heroes who wake up at the crack of dawn with their hard hats in their hands and their loved ones in their iPhones.
