人日。People’s day.  The end of the one week celebration of the lunar new year.  It the year of the rooster!  

Just think 48 years ago I designed a poster for a Chinatown street fair while I was still in high school.  It changed my life.  It was there that I got involved with the Chinatown community.  I volunteered to help with the community street fair and began utilizing my art skills for the good of the community.

I couldn’t forget that there was a riot on Grant avenue with police in riot gear and people throwing firecrackers and barrel bombs at the police.

The year of the rooster!  恭喜發財!
