Edwards James Olmo’s is speaking TRUTH! Very true and sad reality. I can honestly say I really didn’t care about school until I had the option to write a report on Louis Armstrong in the 11th grade. A teacher made the entire class write a report on an influential figure who was not white. Too often we are only given surface level stories about entire races of people, because its easier to place the unknown into a box and categorize them as being the same. Through education we have the opportunity to share knowledge and promote collaboration, to end the fear and xenophobia.
The real change guy outside of the UDistrict Safeway passed away. His back story is very interesting considering where he ended up.
In 2009 he was Vendor of the week and left with this:
“You only go around one time in this life. Live it to the fullest. When I die, I don’t want them to say I didn’t do this, I didn’t do that. When I die I want them to say, he didn’t leave a rock unturned. Life is so fragile; you don’t know when it is going to end, so enjoy your life. ‘Cause you won’t go around twice. Once you pass 14 you’ll never see 14 again. I wish for the whole world that they get a chance to enjoy their life. So that when they get to be 60 or 70 years old they can say, well, I did this, I did that, I achieved this, I achieved that. That’s what I’d like to wish my customers: The very best of everything.”
