BOBTR Christian Grave 10 Year Anniversary
Maricela, her husband Vidal, center, and an Miguel Guevara, old friend from Booker T, left, visit Christian's grave on April 11, 2020, the 10th anniversary of the fatal accident. “He loved me so much," she told me. "He never wanted to cause pain to me, so I try not to get sad. And that’s why I wanted to turn losing Christian into something positive.” For nine years after Christian's death, until the program was sidelined by COVID-19, Maricela made weekly trips to the Bexar County Juvenile Detention Center in San Antonio, Texas to share The Boys of Booker T video and her story with at-risk young men and women.
