Last Sunday there was triathlon competitions in Orange County, CA. It was quite unordinary contest. All the partakers were disabled people. Fermin N. Camarena – one of them – dedicated his race to “Republic Pilgrim”.
Month: September 2010
One of these days there was a special day in “Republic Pilgrim” – the official ceremony to the commission to be students. The heroes of the day were not only first graders but the new comers – new citizens of the state of former street kids who started studying for the 1st time in their entire life.
After the extreme summer with trips and journeys the pilgrims started to study again. The first day of study is always special for the pilgrims. The staff and the kids get prepared for this day in advance: they get the school uniform ready, organize a special concert – the children learn poems by heart. And everybody – kids and teachers look forward to this day.
