    Thank you, thank you for this beautiful video. It shows what immigrants have brought to the US and especially to Colorado. I hope and pray your families will continue to grow healthy food for themselves and to bring to the markets in Colorado.

    Wonderfully composed tribute to los Maya en Colorado…. well done. We salute their courage in building a new life here out of the sadness of leaving their homeland. Guatemala is an amazingly beautiful country, a fragrant and bountiful paradise in the center of the Americas. And unfortunately, another example of how the actions of politicians can cause so much destruction and evil. Your film demonstrates how heartening it is to see the resiliency that people are capable of in response to that evil.
