Letter from the Editor, January 2013
Another year gone and passed, and we’re still here! I had my doubts with the whole “2012 End of the World” thing. But if you’re reading this, then I guess it was just the end of another calendar and we can all go out and hire some stonemasons to carve a new one for the 13th B’ak’tun. Seriously though, while the intricate and incredibly accurate Mayan calendar inspired Hollywood and doomsday seers, we shouldn’t let that tarnish a beautiful culture and the Maya’s actual predictions regarding the 13th B’ak’tun, which I enjoyed learning about in December’s article “The Era of the Light.” If you didn’t get a chance to read it or are interested in reading other articles from past issues of Qué Pasa, check out our website at www.grupoquepasa.com.
Qué Pasa is starting the New Year off right by giving some press to three great NGOs in the articles “CasaSito’s Founder: Making Connections, Building a Team, and Letting Go,” and “EducArte: Where Art and Social Justice Meet,” as well in this month’s Non-Profit Bite which features Faith in Practice. I hope you’ll take the time to read about these wonderful organizations. Perhaps they will inspire you to give a little back in 2013, too.
I’d also like, I think, to introduce you to our new column “Fijate Vos…” by Charlie Chisme. Turn to page 20 to hear the latest.
Happy New Year!
