    Estoy de acuerdo con Marcos Castro…there are many more missing … in sports for example I can tell you of people that lives in Los Angeles where I also live like Jovany Varela the ONLY Honduran to ever win a JUDO World Championship, the FIRST Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter that represented Honduras, etc…

    its not about being famous its about remember where youcame from and where your memories as a young child are and where most of your family is from…ive been in the united states for a while now and ive meet a few honduran that maybe someday they will make their country proud and show them what we are
