Today I cleaned my backyard... spent all day in the sun, bending over and pulling weeds. I would stop to rest here and there cuz my back was killing me and my hands were full of blisters... then I felt it, the tears wanting to come out. It wasn't because of my back or blisters, it was because for a minute there I was really tired and all I could think of was how farm workers, gardeners, and all the hardworking Raza could do this on a daily and never complain... and here I am crying over a few blisters. It's moments like these that make me wake the hell up and just be thankful for every person who works really hard to put food on the table for their children, and who fight on the daily against injustice with integrity and pride just like Cesar Chavez did, and still does through all of us who keep his spirit and legacy alive. Today we remember him and celebrate his life... Long Live Cesar Chavez!!!
