"March twenty-fourth was a very important
day for me. Early in the morning, the
big sun rose quickly. I was very excited
because CCSF students would meet at
the foot of Market..." "I
was the first one there; no one was
familiar to me. However, I spend the
time reading a book. In just a few hours
many people had arrived. The music started
making it cheerful. I was very happy
about being there. You can't imagine
how many people were there. Everyone
lifted their red flags and chanted for
Cesar Chavez. We did this from the Embarcadero
to Civic Center.
We are in Maria's class; some of my
favorite teachers were also there. How
wonderful I felt to be with them! I
can't believe that I could walk with
others who had worked hard for the farm
workers. We came to respect Cesar Chavez
for the union he started.
He was a leader and we should all say,
"thank you, Cesar E. Chavez"".
