When we are really honest with ourselves, we must admit that our loves are all that really belong to us. So it is how we use our lives that determines what kind of men we are. It is my deep belief that only by giving our lives do we find life. I am convinced that the truest act of courage, the strongest act of manliness is to sacrifice ourselves for others in totally nonviolent struggle for justice. To be a man is to suffer for others. God help us to be men! Cesar Chavez
