O'Higgins by Pablo Neruda & Why I talk about Latin America Too Much

One of the pillars of Phi Alpha Iota fraternity is Bernardo O'Higgins. O'Higgins liberated with San Martin and Bolivar, Chile from colonial Spanish rule. We used to have his pure silver medal of St. George, I used to wear it to my classes in college- but I gave it to a girl at college. Luckily, she still has it in her counseling office in Philadelphia. Anyway, his story is part of my family story and explains why I am always harping about Latin America and Jeffersonian Pan-Americanism so I am happy to share his song with you.....
