"SI! Se puedes!"

SI!  Se puedes!

In 1967 my family returned from Ecuador where I had worked with the trade unions.  I was immediately attracted to the farm workers’ struggle.  From our home in Weehawken, NJ we supported the struggle wherever could, e.g. we stopped drinking Gallo Wine.  I don’t think I’ve had any since.  I was so overjoyed the first time I saw a case of grapes with the union label on the box that I got the empty case from the market.  I still have the wooden end piece with the union label.  Occasionally I go over to the bookcase where I keep my box and admired it anew.
