Happy Veterans Day. Thank you for serving our country and protecting our freedoms. This Veteran’s Day, stand with our American heroes, and our wounded warriors. Give them and show them the respect that they deserve.
I have to say that Google has really stepped it up the last year or so with their graphics and innovative illustrations. Bravo to Google for showing your artistic expression and especially today showing your patriotism for our veterans.

HCL readers may be interested in this documentary of the acclaimed play de novo that tells the true story of a 14 year old boy from Guatemala, who chose to leave his life with a street gang in search of his mother and a better life in the United States. The story, crafted from immigration court transcripts, interviews, and letters, describes his legal struggle for asylum to avoid being deported back to Guatemala, where the gang he left behind had ordered his execution. Two showings are scheduled: November 13th at 7:30 pm and November 14th at 12 noon, at El Museo del Bario (Fifth Avenue and 104th Street).
This event is sponsored by the Libertas Center for Human Rights, in partnership with Houses on the Moon Theater Company and the Mount Sinai Global Health Program. On November 13th, there will be a panel discussion following the film with Dr. Dinali Fernando (Libertas Center Medical Director) and Leah Weinzimer (Libertas Center Program Director), Dr. Craig Katz (Mount SInai Medical Center), and Morgan Allen (CCCS Unaccompanied Minors Program Attorney). Tickets are FREE, but please reserve them in advance: http://www.elmuseo.org/event/de-novo-13/.
