With renewed energy and hope for a more stable future, we prepare to enjoy the more pleasant coming months. And, as if adding to the celebration of the 15 year anniversary of our magazine, PARA TODOS, the Getty Villa allowed us to have a photo session for this edition, in the magnificent gardens of the outstanding museum in Malibu.

Beautiful Genesis Rodriguez and charming Christian Meier, two recognized soup-operas actors, felt much complimented at being the first Latino couple to pose at the Getty Villa for our cover. Besides, this is the first museum which because of the bicentennial celebration of Mexico?s Independence, will exhibit valuable pieces from The Aztec Pantheon and the Art of the Empire, from March 24 until July 5. This is a unique opportunity you cannot let go by. ?

There are some signs that the economy is awakening. Don?t forget to be moderate in your expenses. Saving some will make you feel more secure. And if the noose is choking you, if the recession took your job, try to figure things out calmly and find sensible solutions; accept whatever job you are offered until better opportunities come your way. There are always options. Find yours. This is why it is so important that you fill in your 2010 Census form in March. How can we get better labor, health and other benefits for the Latino community if our numbers are not known?

Cheer you up and join us at the Swallows Parade in San Juan Capistrano on March 20 from 11 AM to 2 PM. I have been announcing at the Festival in Spanish for many years and I?m asking our advertisers to donate gifts to raffle among the audience. Share the fun with us and win a prize!

As PARA TODOS feels great pride at being granted the first cover with a Latino couple at the Getty Villa, as Latinos we should witness the treasures this center offers- they exhibit unique pieces, some of them never before seen publicly, for our personal enrichment.* Our quest is to look for those things that render us more knowledgeable because by being well informed and educated we can achieve the life we have always wanted for ourselves and for our children.
