Cesar Chavez. I am not a Liberal, but I do recognize Goodness and Greatness. A true American hero, Cesar was a civil rights, Latino and farm labor leader.
But we have another kind of power that comes from the justice of our cause. So long as we are willing to sacrifice for that cause, so long as we persist in non-violence and work to spread the message of our struggle, then millions of people around the world will respond from their heart, will support our efforts…and in the end we will overcome. -Cesar Chavez
