Una Salsa Por El Día del Padre
This is how we dance in Puerto Rico. The song is “Le Dicen Papá” (They only call me Papa) by El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico.
It’s a cute song. He sings that one kid looks like a friend, another like someone else, but they only call me Papa because I’m the one raising them. Ya. Here’s to stepfathers and extended families.

This is for you Dad
New York Latin Culture Magazine is published partly in honor of my Father, an immigrant who came to the United States as a young man without an education or any English, worked hard, got an education, and made himself a successful professional while raising a family.
Thank you Dad for showing me the world.
Thank you for the many things you taught me. They seemed so insignificant then, but so important now.
Thank you for working hard, and never giving up – even when people pushed you down, until you made it in America. I’m proud to be your son. You are my inspiration.
Love you Dad!
