"We want children to meet these people instead of learninghttp://images.intellitxt.com/ast/adTypes/icon1.png about them in a history book", said Dr. Jessie Olivarez.

"It was just a way for the community to say, we'll never forget you. We know what you've done. We know how important it is", Said Richard Peña Raymond.
