"Meeting Cesar and the UFW"

My most memorable experiences with the UFW go back to my days in seminary in Oakland, CA, when I went on the Walk to Modesto, and had the chance to meet Cesar himself when he came to give a talk to interested students of the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley. There was something about his courage, his humility, his enthusiasm, and the peaceful spirit in him that touched me, and memories of him still do as I continue, with my wife and family today, in our support of farmworkers and the poor in need.
