The session started with Mr. Coon paying tribute to his mentor as he talked about how things turned around for him.
Cesar Chavez has inspirational core values to accept all people, celebrate the community, respect life and the environment, non-violence, innovation, preference to help the most needy, knowledge, sacrifice, service to others, and determination. His first core value to accept all people, I was raised to not judge people based on their race or religion. Being raised this way has made me curious about other peoples backgrounds and cultures. Therefore, during my years in college I would like to spend a semester abroad in order to incorporate myself in another culture and learn as much as possible. Celebrating the community, one of the major ways that I have done this is being involved in Florence All-Around 4-H. We take pride in giving back to the community whether it is to help an elderly couple clean up their yard or volunteering for town events.

This shows how much Jamal cares about William and that he is interested in getting to know him on an even deeper level. It is Jamals way of telling William that he wants to help him now and in the

Family can be the most important people in one’s life. After Jeevan’s time in Allan Gardens, he decides that “he wanted very much to tell Frank about the evening…” (16). His first instinct after having such a whirlwind of a night is to go to his brother and tell him about it; not to go home to his girlfriend, but to see his brother, his family.

Throughout my life, I have assumed many leaderships roles and positions at home, in school and in athletics. Coming from a family with two brothers, I have had the opportunity to learn and experience both ends of brotherhood. My older brother, Thomas, taught me the ropes of life and how to respect others, regardless of age. Through him, I learned how to lead and was able to build my leadership characteristics with my younger brother. When dealing with younger students at school, or younger teammates on the lacrosse team or hockey teams, I instantly refer to the term “acceptance”.

At first, it was just a way to get my community service hours, but the kids later won my heart and there was no turning back. It was a place of unity, a place of hope. It brought people from all over the city of Fitchburg together. Volunteers, such as myself, would come from everywhere to help, the high school kept in touch through their mentors, and the kids would bring different friends along. That unity, that Fitchburg unity, was shown everywhere: at football games, at school events, and even at the grocery store.

Enhancing My Roots Being Mexican-American has been such a blessing to me. Growing up I would feel embarrassed to have brown skin and to my speak my first language, which is Spanish. I would feel jealous hearing the other kids speak English so well as I struggled more and was placed in English Language Development. I would detest to get pulled out of class and get asked trivial questions like “what is this?” when it was a simple book.
