Filipino American History--Our Legacy is Not for Sale!

I am proud to be Filipino, Filipino-American.  I am proud of our legacy in America.  I love the laughter and resilience of my people.  I love the sound of their laughter, their thick voices of different tongues.  I love my people 365 days a year.  I love the Filipino youth who stand up for their community.  I love our generosity.  I love how gracious we are while at the same time possess the fiercest fire when defending our community.  The sun rises

Hey Brother

Life is short for some people and life is long for others and it's hard to except the value of death. But without death there is no living life to the fullest. That's what Mark, a man who died too soon after a hemorrhage and facing the comeback of what the struggle can to people and sadly he had died leaving the world and going on his journey. Mark Flaherty a man who was born in 1969 and died in 2016.

A day For Mark Flaherty

The funeral started around 11 o' clock on a Thursday. At first it began cloudy then about a couple of minutes later it got sunny. The car he was in came, then his sister went along as some of his family and friends saw Mark for the last time. It was sad seeing Aunt Viv cry and depressing for most of his family. Then the pallbearers carried the casket toward the grave, then put it on top of something to carry the casket and lower it down.

A breeze for Mark

There was a small breeze that crawled through the graveyard in Vallejo, California. It seemed that that breeze was honoring along with us the amazing man Mark Flaherty who died January 28, 2016 at the age of forty-seven. When we got to the site of the funeral we saw a group of people spread out and waiting for the hearse.

The Houseless Folks

The Houseless are always told what to do, and what Not to do

Where to sleep and where not to sleep

What time they need to go sleep and what time they need to get up

Where to eat, and what to eat
