“I am convinced that the truest
act of courage, the strongest act of manliness,
is to sacrifice ourselves for others in a totally
non-violent struggle for justice…
Non-violence is not inaction.
It is not discussion.
It is not for the timid or weak…
Non-violence is hard work.
It is the willingness to sacrifice.
It is the patience to win.”
- Cesar Chavez
