“Family and Legacy”
There is a common bond between, “Family and Legacy” that has been a thread that has driven men such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Cesar Chavez, Henry B. Gonzales, Frank M. Tejeda and Frank Madla to be part of a great legacy in our nation. Their force behind the scenes has been a family united to back their every move. A family process of standing behind them 100% no matter what was at stake, even if it were to mean being imprisoned, mocked, ridiculed, partaking in hunger strikes and even to the point of being away in meetings or rallies most of the time. The shear fact that knowing that family was always there made the endeavor and sacrifice, a process in which they were able to persevere and leave a legacy for generations to come.
“This We Believe”
Today is a time in which we can reflect upon ourselves and realize what type of legacy we are all going to leave behind. Knowing that our family is behind us 100%. We must ask ourselves what can we do together to make such an impact on society and our community. We must ask ourselves, “Where is the most need in our beloved San Antonio?” Let us start from there and move forward to create a new legacy. One that has such honorable mention as those men stated above. We as a family and as a community can stand united and work towards a common good.
• Standing together we can help feed the needy – the low to moderate income family. We can create a Super food Pantry with the assistance of the Food Bank and San Antonio Community Leaders support. •Standing together we can deliver to the door steps the much needed nutritional food source to the senior citizens. •Standing together we can serve our senior citizens and provide a safe environment, learning and just plain old fashion listening to their life long experience. Let their voice be heard and take notice of their contributions to society. •Standing together we can provide the best educational resources possible to all underserved and underprivileged students. Through service learning, tutoring and mentoring. •Standing together we can prevent child hood obesity through training, exercise and physical activities such as Karate, Yoga, and WII Fit. “This We Believe”, is the calling for
