Memories

When I was 12, I remember my sister Carmen being involved in the UFW movement.  She would always have us get involved in everything she did.  One weekend morning, we stood at the corner of Channel Islands and Ventura Roads in Oxnard, CA.  We were holding up signs and most people honked and showed their support.  However, the passengers from one car actually flipped me the bird.  Besides being shocked, I knew from that point on forward that I would be rooting for La Causa forever more.  I had more than enough reason without that event, however, that sealed the deal!  Si Se Puede!
