I got to meet the great Dolores Huerta today!!!
As recent transplants to Raton NM, spouse and I are attending all the local events. Today was the first annual Raton Film Festival.
The first film was Ghost Town, about Dawson NM, where Ms. Huerta was born. She was in attendance for the film.
When I saw her leaving, I couldnt pass up my chance. I went to the lobby and waited, told her that my introduction to her and Cesar Chavez was thru a great man (in my opinion) named Ed Wilson, a longtime local president of the Transport Workers Union, and how honored I was to finally meet her in person.
She was very gracious, ignored my nervousness, shook my hand, and asked my name.
I then allowed her to leave.
What a good day.
