I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Such a valuable source of what’s happening in city where we live. Objective reporting that informs us and allows us to come to our own conclusions.

Do you remember the 1992 LA Riots? If not, what have you learned about them?

"I was in high school," Vicky Rosales wrote on the Alhambra Source Facebook page. "I remember leaving Alhambra High, chilling near Super A market and watching all the smoke rise up. It was unreal. I had no idea what what really going till later that day. It wasn't until I was an adult in college that I began to understand what the LA uprising was about."

Next month will be the 20th anniversary of the LA Riots. We'd like to know how they impacted Alhambra residents, and how it continues to do so.

Please share in the comments below your thoughts on how the riots impacted you. Is the city too far removed from downtown LA for them to have an effect? Or did they? Do you think times have changed? If so, how? If you were too young to remember them, did you learn about them in school? Did your parents tell you about them? Do your parents even know about them?
