Legend Says

According to the legend (I’m making this up), people with sarcastic humor aren’t well liked at first, or actually they are never liked, to be honest. Well, I get it... Sarcasm is not for everyone! It seems that those who have a simpler sense of humor, usually relate better to most people, or are not disliked as easily as the sarcastic ones. Yes, I’m referring to those who chuckle at everything, but do not really understand anything.

To keep this story short, it just seems to me that, those of us who are more honest, direct and unfiltered when saying things, have the common trait of sarcastic humor which identifies us.

And what can we do? Life has rewarded us not only with being smart and witty, but we also received the grace of having an excellent sense of humor. Analyze the situation and you will see that people who are not very good at honesty and sincerity, have a lesser sense of humor, and take everything personal. Could it be an inferiority issue?

You shouldn’t feel about not being liked or being blunt. This is just part of the many personalities that exist. For those with sarcastic humor, it’s important learning to be tactful, which is something that many with this trait are not very good at. It is also important to keep in mind that some people tend to be much more sensitive and do not understand this type of humor. It is necessary sometimes to be discreet so that we don’t go around hurting people around us. Don’t you agree?

Publisher's Note

There is an idea that most Latino immigrants who come here lack education, and thus are bound to perform jobs that require more physical abilities than intellectual ones.

The laborers usually receive a negative stigma, even though the United States society requires these types of jobs to function properly. It is important to us to remember there is dignity in any job. 

In our Líders section, we feature Mari Alejos-Puente, an entrepreneur who is succeeding in the cosmetics’ industry. She graduated from Tulane University and Xavier University and she told me how her mother and her grandmother  were part of the cleaning crews at these institutions, respectively, and how proud they were to see her obtain her undergrad and master degrees.

It is a beautiful thing when you know ladies like this mother and grandmother work hard to give a better life to their children. I wanted to mention this as a side note, because it is important to highlight their efforts, just as much as the effort of the highly skilled professionals we are featuring in our cover story.

In our cover we feature three Latin American physicians who are giving individuals a second chance in life with through their commitment and work at the Ochsner Transplant Institute.

Let his note be a reminder that Latinos, in every field, are providing their skills, talent, and sacrifices every day to make the United States a culturally and economically stronger society.
