Today is Cesar Chavez’s (insert accent symbols above “e” and “a”) birthday and a national holiday. For those of you unfamiliar with his story, he was a Mexican American farm worker who lead many demonstrations to support farm workers and make farming methods more environmentally and worker friendly. He founded what is now the United Farmers Workers.
In 1994, President Clinton awarded him the U.S. Medal of Freedom after Cesar’s death in 1993. He was a vegan, apparently the coolest folks around are vegetarian, vegan, or pescatarian. Just an observation. 😉
Today I’m grateful for visionaries, holidays, and muffins.
