Honoring the freedom fighters of the Alamo

By: Jose M. Ontiveros

Jose M. Ontiveros said remembering those who died at the Alamo is fitting because, after all, this is San Antonio. "I thought about it and they are special people who died for a good cause," Ontiveros said. While admitting that the Texas government wasn't that great toward Tejanos, and that the Mexican government also wasn't really good, Ontiveros said the people who died were just regular folks, for the most part. "We all have bad and good," Ontiveros said with a smile.
