Thank-you for this important reminder Mitchell.

Caesar Chavez is and will be in my heart forever. His essence and journey are always with US. Remember so clearly the first time i skipped grapes at the store and later lettuce, et al. . .what he gave is still most relevant and deeply needed in our lives today.

Some treasured words . . .

"Kindness and compassion towards all living things is a mark of a civilized society. Conversely, cruelty, whether it is directed against human beings or against animals, is not the exclusive province of any one culture or community of people." ―Cesar Chavez

"Years of misguided teaching have resulted in the destruction of the best in our society, in our cultures and in the environment." ―Cesar Chavez

"Do not romanticize the poor...We are all people, human beings subject to the same temptations and faults as all others. Our poverty damages our dignity." ―Cesar Chavez

"There isn't enough money to organize poor people. There never is enough money to organize anyone. If you put it on the basis of money, you're not going to succeed." ―Cesar Chavez

"It takes a lot of punishment to be able to do anything to change the social order." ―Cesar Chavez

"Dr. King challenged us to work for a greater humanity. I only hope that we are worthy of his challenge."
―Cesar Chavez

"A renowned civil rights and labor leader who fought for basic fairness, dignity for workers and human rights. César once said, "we don’t need perfect political systems, we need perfect participation.”!
