"The day we left the grapvines and joined the march"

The day we left the grapvines and joined the march

I remember working in Lamont in the grapes and every day it seemed more intense as the Strike would erupt in full harmony.  When my Father stepped out of the grapevines and began to march then we all followed.  We were so proud and full of emotion.  My Father admired Cesar and listened to the radio news every morning and at work.

I can still remember that day vividly and don’t think I will ever forget.
