Ghost Of Cesar Chavez Demands Proper Train Crossing Signal At Ave. B & Cesar Chavez—Flowers Framed By Passing Train

This afternoon I stopped at Munoz’s Flowers at the intersection of Avenue B and Cesar Chavez here in Houston.

I bought some flowers for my wife.

After I bought the flowers and as I was getting in my car, I heard a loud train whistle.

Above you see the train that came and the flowers I bought.

As they train passed by, kids in a school bus stopped for the train yelled out the window of the bus asking who was getting the flowers.

I told them they were for my wife.

That seemed to meet the approval of the kids.

There is no gate and flashing lights to warn people about oncoming trains at the intersection of Avenue B and Cesar Chavez.

If this railroad crossing was in a more wealthy area—Which I understand it would not likely be—there would have been a gate and flashing lights.

One man driving a pick-up truck cut it very close driving across the tracks as the train approached.

If the ghost of Cesar Chavez had been at that intersection, he would have pleaded with the man in the pick-up to wait for the train. Also, I’m certain that the ghost of Cesar Chavez would be working hard to get a proper signal at that location.

Some lives have more value than others. At least in the eyes of some.

Here is information on the life of Cesar Chavez.
