The group fell silent. Kenneth felt goose bumps on his arms. Guns, again. These union farmworkers really faced danger.
Chavez smiled gently. "Think for a moment. A man with a gun has a harder decision to make," he said. He paused. "You -- the picketer -- you're just standing there. You're just there. It's up to him to do something.
"You must listen," Chavez continued. "If we fight back, every picket line would be a battle. And who would be stronger in the fight? Who would win? Who has all the money? The power?" Chavez asked. He folded his arms. "The growers. The big people. They would win. This is the only way we can win. No fighting back."
