Remembering Dr. Pio Valenzuela

Dr. Pio Valenzuela's birth anniversary fell on a Friday this year. Passing by the Valenzuela City Hall of Justice, One Valenzuela saw several wreaths which were laid in honor of Dr. Pio. Contemplating in a few minutes, she realized that it is already his 145th birth anniversary.

A day before the ceremony, One Valenzuela got the chance to take a look at the coffee table book about Dr. Pio Valenzuela's life through Mr. Jonathan Balsamo, the curator of the city museum and an awesome history professor. He said that a thousand copies were printed. It shall be launched the next day. There were a few books written about Dr. Pio and having another one is absolutely good news.

Before ending this short post, One Valenzuela would like to leave Valenzuelanos a question which could have been asked many times to students taking up the Valenzuela Socio Cultural Heritage subject: If Dr. Pio were alive today, what do you think would he say to us? 

Write your thoughts about it below. Every note is greatly appreciated.
