Cesar Chavez my idol

Growing up in the 80’s my parents worked for Almaden Vineyards.  I would go with my mom to picket the local markets.  As I grew older I realized who Cesar Chavez was and how he helped many farmworkers including my parents and grandparents.  I would go to the local meetings, and I was Cesar Chavez’ little helper.  I would help the farmworkers fill out paper work, pass out flyers.  I was his little right hand, in Hollister, CA.  My parents always took me to the marches around California, and I remember always marching side by side with Cesar.  He would hold my hand and we would chant “Si Se Puede!!!” through out the streets.  I felt empowered.  I will always hold a special place in my heart for Mr. Chavez.  He taught me to go after what I believe is right.  To always do the right thing.
