As American as rice and beans

My parents came to this country as undocumented immigrants from Honduras, Central America. Their three children provide public service of some kind – I work with students with disabilities at a public college; my sister is a high school Spanish teacher and my brother is a former post-9/11 US Marine and current Brevard county Florida Fire Fighter. We are today’s American family – as American as rice and beans.
