The smell of humidity and slightly warmed soil filled the air of a beautiful July day in San Jose. Seeing hundreds of youth and adult alike, ranging from ages thirteen to thirty, talking and laughing as though they were the one and the same. The buzz of conversation and the sweet sound of laughter filled the air. This is a day that I would never forget.

In early June, my church set a socializing activity for all of the youth in the districts of Northern and Southern California for July 26, 2009. It was the weekend of my church's 95th anniversary and the church administration thought that it would be good to bring the districts of Northern California and Southern California together to emphasize the unity of our church.

All that everyone was talking about was the socializing. My friends and I were so excited. We planned outfits. We planned our rides and where to meet when we got to San Jose.

I reveled in the fact that I was a part of my church's history. I was lost in conversation on the way to San Jose. Next thing I knew, I looked out the window and there we were! Now let me say, being a Daly City baby, I should've expected that San Jose was actually in summer while Daly City is still stuck under the clouds. It was hot to us Daly City kids. The smell of humidity filled the air. As we jumped out of the car, we were suddenly hit by the overwhelming heat. We gathered under the shade next to the San Jose Locale's Function Hall and waited for the rest of our friends.

When they arrived, we walked toward the registration table with hesitation. We hoped that we wouldn't be separated but of course we were. The leaders of the socializing separated us by age groups, which wasn't too bad but we were separated from a majority of our friends. I stood with the age group
