never left with a dry eye

I had the pleasure of seeing Cesar give talks on three or four occasions, and he brought tears to my eyes every time, with his passion, commitment and love. Once was in a college basketball arena, to a large conference of student environmental activists, and another time was at a small gathering on a street corner in downtown Chicago. Whether the venue or crowd was large or small, he connected with people in such an intimate way. He was one of a kind, and of course other UFW leaders such as Dolores Huerta and Arturo Rodriguez, who I consulted with long ago on a UFW canvass project in Chicago, have carried Cesar’s torch so well.
