Sixteen years ago today Selena was taken from us, what a sad day that was... there is not one day I don't think or talk about her, so I would like to take a minute to honor her memory. I know it might sound weird but I really do think she's my guardian angel. When ever I feel like life has given me too much to handle, or I'm feeling all sad girl, all I have to do is play some of her music and somehow all is good once again... and you best believe I have a Selena altar in my house, the two ladies I pray to on a daily are Mi Virgen de Guadalupe and Santa Selena... so on this day I pray that she's happy in heaven and can feel all the love we are sending her... We Hella Miss You and Love You Selena!!!! Anything for Salinas!!!
Now check out this video of Selena giving us a lesson on Mexican-American music history in the Southwest... Wacha!!!
and like Selenas dad in the movie (Edward James Olmos) likes to say...
"We've gotta be more Mexican than the Mexicans and more American than the Americans both at the same time. It's exhausting!"
