Today is a wonderful day for all Lateenos, today we celebrate the successful confirmation of Judge Sonia Sotomayor into the U.S. Supreme Court. She will be the 111th person, the 3rd female justice and the 1st Lateena sworn in to the high court. Though Sonia Sotomayor met much opposition during her initial nomination and in depth questioning from all aspects of her life and career, she was able to maintain that she was the right person for the job. I believe that we are beginning to reap the rewards for so many years of service and dedication to our United States, and as doors of equality and opportunity open up for us we will then fill the positions that we have rightfully earned. We wish Ms. Sotomayor nothing less then our best wishes and give our full support. May God bless her, her family and her career as the new Supreme Court Justice.
