Simón Bolivar
b. 7-24-1783; Caracas, Venezuela
d. 12-17-1830; Santa Marta, Colombia (tuberculosis)

Simón Bolivar is often called “the George Washington of South America.” His heroic deeds helped many South American nations win their independence. During his lifetime, he helped millions of Latin Americans realize the dream of freedom. But he died without ever seeing his own fondest dream come true.

Simón Bolivar was born to a wealthy family in Caracas, Venezuela. His parents died when he was just a child, and he inherited a fortune. While on a trip to Europe, he met and married a young Spanish girl. But she died a short time after they returned to Caracas. Returning to Europe, Bolivar vowed that he would one day liberate Venezuela from the Spanish. He fulfilled this promise in 1811 when he captured Caracas and proclaimed Venezuela independent. The Spanish fought back, and soon forced Bolivar to flee to Jamaica and then to Haiti. But Bolivar gathered a force of fighting men and returned to South America. There, his victories over the Spanish led to independence for Bolivia, Colombia, Peru, and Ecuador.

Bolivar's dream was to unite all the countries of South America into one large and powerful nation. But one by one, the countries withdrew from the Colombian Union, as Bolivar called his union. By 1828, Simón Bolivar ruled only what is now Colombia. In 1830 health problems forced him to resign as Colombia's President, and he died in December of that year.

Gabriel Garcia Marquez
b. 3-6-1927; Aracataca, Colombia

Gabriel “Gabo” García Márquez was awarded the 1982 Nobel Prize in Literature “for his novels and short stories, in which the fantastic and the realistic are combined in a richly composed world of imagination, reflecting a continent's life and conflicts”.

Gabriel Garcia Márquez quotes ~
• “What matters in life is not what happens to you but what you remember and how you remember it.”
• “It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old, they grow old because they stop pursuing dreams.”
• “The interpretation of our reality through patterns not our own, serves only to make us ever more unknown, ever less free, ever more solitary.”
• “Fiction was invented the day Jonas arrived home and told his wife that he was three days late because he had been swallowed by a whale.”
• “No medicine cures what happiness cannot.”

Nancy Lopez
b. 1-6-1957; Torrance, California

Poster Text: It has been said that Nancy Lopez is women's golf, and in many ways that is true. More than any other person, Nancy Lopez is responsible for increating the visibility and popularity of the sport of women's professional golf. She was the first superstar of the sport, and she is still one of the best-known female athletes in the country.

Nancy Lopez was born in Torrence, California, in 1957, but she grew up in the city of Roswell, New Mexico. Her father, Domingo Lopez, came to America from Mexico when he was just a small boy. He worked on the farm with his four sisters and four brothers, and in the evenings he played baseball. Later he took up golf, and within eighteen months he was already winning amateur tournaments. Ms. Lopez has said that she inherited her love of sports from her father. At the age of eight, Nancy was given her first golf clubs, and she quickly became on the the best players in the state. At nine, she won the state peewee tournament. The next year she won the state girls' championship. Her father, impressed with her talent, became her coach and trainer. He even dug a big hole in their backyard and filled it with sand so Nancy could practice hitting out of sandtraps!

Thins were not always easy for Nancy, however. As a Hispanic woman, she was often a victim of discrimination. Her parents were not allowed to join the Roswell Country Club, so Nancy had to play on the municipal course in Roswell.. And many people did not like the idea of a Mexican American winning so many golf tournaments. In 1977, Ms. Lopez turned pro, and she quickly made a name for herself by finishing second in her first three tournaments. In 1978, she set a record by winning five straight tournaments. In her long pro career, Nancy Lopez has been one of the most successful and popular athletes in America. She has come a long way from the dusty streets of Roswell. But she always remembers that “you can't win all the time. As long as you're doing the best you can that's [what's] important.”
