"I have lived in New Mexico my entire life and my family has been here through countless generations. New Mexico is an oasis of diversity, and both the desert and people are a full spectrum of color, from one extreme to the other and everything in between. We have tiny, dusty towns, villages and pueblos which carry a rich history and a multitude of traditions dating back before recorded time. New Mexico is also mysterious, and many things have yet to be uncovered. New Mexico and its people also take pride in their roots and who they really are. We can unite New Mexico by seeing past our differences and standing together in this difficult time in our country."
