What example do we set?

The example we set as adults are those that our children will interpret as their own.

The National Puerto Rican Day Parade Board of Directors has decided that the selection of Osvaldo Rios as International Padrino of the 2010 Puerto Rican Day Parade is the best choice. This goes to show to what extent the parade has become commercialized. The Board of Directors here have made it so apparent in their selection that it is okay to be an accused domestic abuser . Whatever the case may be, our young men deserve and need as many positive role models as possible. I would think that in this day and age there is a pool of plenty more who are dedicated, hard working, loving, compassionate and positive role models.

The responses to his selection as Padrino are mixed and controversy continues to follow. Read... Open Letter to the Board of Directors of the National Puerto Rican Day Parade.
