Barrio Bushido will be officially released on Tuesday, February 1, 2011. It is time to mobilize, spread the word, and fully support not just a book but a movement. Here is our opportunity for empowerment and promotion of our unique intellectual and spiritual identity. In this novel, we have a homeboy and homegirl power, a human power! I volunteer to speak for all of us, whoever you may be, and boldly present the brutal truth about our humanity. This is not just my book; this is my life. Together let us share life and spread this life to the world so that others may learn and benefit from our ideas.
At this point these events listed below are planned for Barrio Bushido, and this is a great beginning. Still, there is much more to accomplish. We need your assistance to sing our beautiful song. If you have ideas or would like to volunteer your time and/or energy into making our voice heard, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like more information about me and my ideas, please search through all sections of this blog. Thank you.
Con Sinceridad y Humildad,
Ben Bac Sierra
