Dr. Juan Martinez from Fuller Theological Seminary, and head of the hispanic studies program, told a couple of us the other day that the Latino faith community in LA is planning a day of prayer and fasting this Sunday April 2. There is supposed to be another school walk out today from High Schoolers, which I am personally pretty happy about, I like to see people participate in civil disobedience when it is for a good cause. Lastly May Day, May 1st, is Labor day for the rest of the world and even though America doesn't celebrate it any longer (we started it but stopped doing it once Russia and other communist countries joined in on the celebration) the Latino community will have a work
stopage stoppage day. Juan Martinez is looking into some ways for Fuller to participate and I certainly hope we do something. Hopefully we will witness our own real "Day Without A Mexican" and learn just how important our Latino neighbors are in this great city.
