I lived in Hayward, CA, during the grape “boycott.” I picketed the various grocery stores in my immediate area, leafleting and talking to people not to buy grapes that were not picked by Union Members. I belonged to the Third Order of St. Francis and my community and I were involved in some way or other to help the United Farm Workers; many marched with him in Delano. Another time I went to Chabot Jr. College in Hayward to listen to Cesar Chavez speak. As he spoke to us in the auditorium, I was totally awed by his demeanor. He was a much smaller person than I had imagined, he spoke to us in a most beautiful and loving and humbling manner. The first thing that went through me was this man is a saint, a real honest living saint. He really touched my soul and he has never left me. May he rest in peace.
