Vistas: Hispanic Cultural Traits To Preserve For Future Generations

First Posted: 09/16/11 08:24 AM ET   Updated: 11/15/11 05:12 AM ET

In this week's Vistas, we join in the celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month by asking prominent Latino thinkers and doers for their perspective on a common theme:

As U.S Hispanics, we hold firmly to a sense of common roots with all Latinos across the world, even as we celebrate the diversity of, and breadth across, our shared heritage.

In recognition of Hispanic Heritage Month 2011, we ask:

Which is the one Latino cultural trait you most want to see preserved and handed down to future generations?

Recognizing that Latinos are not a homogeneous group, and yet share a broad range of experiences and legacies, Vistas simply aims to help illustrate different points of view, which in aggregate can present a truer reflection of what the larger community feels and thinks.

In the slideshow we present their responses to this week's theme and invite you share your punto de vista and comments below.

Strength Of Family Connection

Daniel Cubias, The Hispanic Fanatic

'I read that sociologists recently polled Latinos to gauge the single most powerful indicator of our culture. In a landslide, Hispanics answered, "strength of family connection." I agree with that result. Yes, focusing on our families can be a double-edged sword, but it's still a great trait to preserve across generations. I'd also like to see it exported to other segments of American society.'
