Making History in Santa Monica
By Oscar de la Torre
May 24, 2015 -- It was great walking on the Samohi football field today where I once played and practiced. Only this time I was there to tackle social justice issues with presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
A diverse crowd of over 7,000 students, teachers and Santa Monica residents waited in line to form part of a historical moment. I ran into Samohi teachers and saw students excited, chanting and holding up Bernie posters with pride.
I must say, one thing I will always remember is Bernie telling me, like he told the rest of the crowd, that by reigning in Wall Street's hold on legislators and demilitarizing police departments, we can re-invest in health and education. He said, only a political revolution can accomplish this transformation.
