In this photo taken July 26, 2012, recent Ohio State University graduate Erik Santamaria sits on a campus library stairway in Columbus, Ohio. He's 30, between jobs, with $50,000 in student debt, and no clear sense what the future holds. But Erik Santamaria, Ohio-born son of Salvadorans, has a pretty awesome attitude about his country, his life and the world of possibilities. “Maybe things won't work out the way I want,” he offers. “But, boy, I sure can't complain about how things have worked out so far.” (AP Photo/Kantele Franko) less
