Rising - what I titled this image. I named it that because for me, finding this person's name was like bringing him back to life from the dead. I had a purpose that day. From a blank piece of paper to his name. As I rubbed the graphite pencil across the paper we were introduced without words and it felt odd. I had no clue who Vicente Quintan Rodriquez was just 30 minutes before my dad told to look him up and I found his name. As each letter appeared, it became more personal.
My dad had never spoken of this time in his life. I later found out Vicente is who at one time saved my dad's life. Guess I owe him my most humble thanks.
If not for this wall...many would never know any of them ever existed.
