Am I Hispanic/ Latino/ Chicano?

Am I Hispanic? It seems like such a simple question.  But, ethnic identity can be complicated these days.  I’m 6’5″ with grey eyes and light skin.

What did we learn on 9/11?

I saw a post from a friend who is a teacher showing a picture of a patriotic 9/11 backpack of one of her students full of American flags and “God Bless America.” She mentioned how her class had talked a lot about 9/11 the last few days. She mentioned that she was glad the lessons […]

The Problem and Blessing of Transparency

When I started Faith on View in 2011, I wrote on the About page that transparency is a core value of mine and this blog would seek to be transparent. That declaration has been there for eight years now. Honestly, I knew I was a little nervous about being transparent but I never knew how hard […]
