This helped more people to see Robinson as a civil rights baseballer. Another example is when he used baseball as a way to reach out to people. "Millions of others read about his exploits on the baseball field in newspapers and magazines, or listened to radio broadcasts. He was a living and breathing monument to U.S. civil rights" (Kinsman). He was showing America that everyone needs equal treatment. Robinson didn’t just impact baseball, he impacted America. He opened up the gates for blacks to join baseball. “There is a reason why so many young black men have tried to follow in Robinson’s footsteps, pouring all their ambitions into the hope of a career as a pro athlete” (Jackie Robinson's Greatness).

No one could see him through the debris. Around the area, Francisco's family was searching for him. "But outside the building the determination that runs in the Bucio family was making its mark. His father and six brothers joined countless volunteers digging frantically in the rubble with picks and shovels. His family never lost hope. Four days later, they finally reached Francisco" (Rising from the Rubble). Once the found him, Francisco was rushed to the hospital to be checked. Because of the steel beam, his dominant hand was no longer useful because of the damage it had been through. This was an adversity he had to overcome in order to accomplish his dream of becoming a surgeon. In order to do that, he had a struggle to follow his dreams. Francisco overcame this adversity by amputating four of his fingers. With five more operations in the future, his right hand still wouldn’t move. When the operations didn't work, Bucio looked out for a new treatment. "His quest led him to San Francisco and Dr. Harry Buncke... Francisco realized that Dr. Buncke was probably his last hope and promised himself, if Dr. Buncke can successfully complete the operation, I'll take care of the rest" (Rising from the Rubble). Francisco had to get his toes to replace his fingers. After the surgery, Francisco kept practicing how to hold things in his new fingers. He kept trying until he got every task right.
