While traveling to the best Colorado growers I've had the honor of watching migrants laboring in the fields under very difficult and trying conditions in order to make a better life for themselves and their families.  And also to grow and harvest the produce that we are able to enjoy throughtout the season.  Without these hard working folks our food options would be bleak to say the least.  Given the current political climate and rumblings that some less than appreciative folks have towards migrants, and given that my children attend a bilingual school with many immigrant children, this is a way I think I can give the children of some of these familes some sense of self worth.  There can be no doublt that these children hear and feel the nonsensical atttudes that swirl around them, the least we can do as decent human beings is help them to see their self worth.
