      One, if not me, then who?!?. You have the power to make change, you only have to execute! Two, it's a beautiful art work. Three, it illustrates history. Four, I am a proud Latino who understands the dangers of being marginalized! I don't care to be marginalized, I have a unique history that has shaped my culture! You erase the beautiful mural, you erase the telling of my unique history that has shaped my culture and you marganize me at the same time. No thank you!!!

      I am signing because I believe we must preserve this historical piece. This is not only related to Chicano history, but it is also the history of our United States... The Chicano movement will forever be part of the the US history just like any other time of history. We cannot erase our history.

      The first time I saw the mural, I could not believe how amazing it was and how it was right here at The University of Houston. I felt proud to be a student. I'd like others to feel the same sense of pride.
