Today is unofficially "Hug Your Nearest Chileno/ Chilena Day"...

by Carmen Cruz

...And here's why. If you have the time, Read This relatively short article about the coup in Chile (September 11th, 1973) . As the daughter of a Chilean political refugee, this day is always a bit of a sad day, as I know it is for every other Chileno / Chilena out there.

So if one of us happens to be close by you at any particular time today, a hug is in order.
