José De Diego's Day

Today was a holiday in Puerto Rico. We were celebrating the birth of one of the most important thinkers of the island: José De Diego. He was born in the city I live, Aguadilla, but many- many years ago. He was so many things: politician, thinker, educator, poet, jurist, journalist, essayist and orator. In education, he founded the University of Puerto Rico in Mayagüez, where many engineers study, even some that actually work at the NASA. How can a person do so many things?... I don't know, I'm tired already. If José De Diego have heard me, he would recite me one of his most known poems: En la brecha, that encourage people not to become lazy but to act for the things they want. Well, you can learn more about José De Diego in the links I've already marked in the text (the information is in English).

Ola kala!
