WHERE ARE ALL THE ROLE MODELS??? In a time when the current goal of our youth is to appear on a reality show, marry a celebrity and so on; it is a great loss to have such a positive influence depart our society. In the light of our dearly d...eparted Maya Angelou, we will be discussing the lack of positive role models that exist for the children in our community. Tune in this Sunday as we discuss the diminishing state of our children's future.
Why Are Openly Gay Positive Role Models Important for Children?
Because some children, from a very early age may be aware that they are LGBT. For a child or young person growing up heterosexual there are many positive role models available. Gay people traditionally have tended to shy away from acting as role models, for fear of judgement or discrimination, despite this there are countless LGBT people world wide who act as positive role models in a variety of jobs and situations.
For any child or young person who has LGBT family, friends or may be questioning themselves, it is vital that they see their own lives reflected positively in both the school and the wider community.

Arnulfo Hernández, Jr., is an attorney in Sacramento and co-author of a book on WW II that focuses on the men of Company E, 141st Infantry Regiment, 2nd Battalion, 36th Texas Division, 5th Army, who saw action in North Africa, Italy and Southern France. Company E was the only All-Chicano Company in the Army in WW II. The title of the book is, “The Toughest Chicano Fighting Soldiers in WW II!” A memorial in El Paso pays tribute to the Fallen Sons of El Paso of Company E, many of whom paid the ultimate price in the failed attempt to cross the Rapido River in southern Italy in January of 1944.
The company was based in El Paso, Texas, and the majority of its members were from Bowie High School from El Segundo Barrio in the Southside of El Paso, the same school from which Arnulfo graduated years later. Many of the men of company E left high school before graduating to answer the call of duty and serve in WW II. They serve with honor or were killed in action or went missing in action under honorable conditions while fighting the Nazi war machine bent on subjugating those not of the claimed human master Aryan Race. They fought as Americans against a racist Nazi enemy, although they were not always treated as Americans back home before, during and after the war. On July 25, 2014, a special graduation ceremony for the members of Company E will be held at Bowie High School in El Paso, Texas. High School Diplomas will be awarded to 4 survivors of Company E, all in their 90’s. Other “posthumous” High School Diplomas will be presented to widows and next of kin of Company E members. They are all entitled to receive their High School Diploma under Texas State Law.
Currently working on different projects dealing with immigration, specially the deportation and dividing of families.
Born in 1947 in “El Barrio,” in Arizona in an aunt’s house next to the railroad tracks. Born to one Leonila Larriva, 32, a one-armed Mexican national from Chihuahua (who had run away from PanchoVilla’s revolution), and one Young Jim Fong, 25, Chinese national from Canton, China. “Parents” never married due to ban on Chinamen marrying white women, even though Mexican women were not considered to be “very white” then. I learned early, swimming in the womb, that justice and law could often be opposing forces.
At age three was given a quarter by the “father” and taken to the movies by a half-sister and never returned. I was never to eat rice and poke at fisheyes with my chopsticks with the “father” again. “Father” was lost forever.
In coming years they wondered the border towns of Mexicali, Nogales, and Tijuana with a one-armed mother. Slept on cardboard boxes, ate from dumps. Stole whatever was not tied down. The “mother” sold her body at times because she was never very good at making tortillas to sell because of her one-arm situation. Please read poem “Awake in a Mexicali Dream” included for a view of a small child’s life on the border. “Mother” joined the “father” to be lost forever.
In 1951 he went to live in USA projects with half-sister and her husband. Started first grade at the age of eight. Met “Dick and Jane.” Was put in closet for speaking sing-song Spanish to them.
Graduated from Arizona State University. Became a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Philippines. Received his MFA, Ceramics degree from University of Hawaii.
