The National Parks Service is looking at a Phoenix site to be named in connection with other sites as a national historic park in honor of César Chávez.
Mr. Chávez worked tirelessly to improve the working conditions of migrant laborers. He has left a legacy that includes recognition from U.S. Presidents, and parks, streets, university buildings, public schools, a college and a Navy ship named for him. His greatest legacy is in the eyes and hearts of the many people whose lives he helped elevate.
Not many of us reading this blog will be as well known as César Chávez. And not everyone who has followed his activities has agreed with every one of his positions. However, there is no question that he has left a legacy.
In our perhaps more limited spheres of influence, most of us want to leave a legacy. We might not aspire to have a postage stamp in our image, or to win the Presidential Medal of Freedom, or to have great structures named after us, but we hope that the fruits of our labors will be recognized, appreciated and well used by those who succeed us.
The organizing efforts of César Chávez that became effective and that had a lasting effect took careful planning and execution. To leave our own legacy, we must also engage in effective planning. One great opportunity we have is in creating and carefully maintaining a proper estate plan. The worldly means and the principles we stand for can be left in an effective manner to bless generations to come.
