Ruth Archer Obit: Brian Heron - Grandson of James Connoly (22) RE: Obit: Brian Heron - Grandson of James Connoly 18 Mar 11

Goodness me - Steve Gaghagen. It's been a long time. :)

"And furthermore if you had no place to stay and were a
stranger, he'd put you up and you would now become part of Heron's
extended family." - that's a nice thought, even after all this time.

Thinking about Brian's union organising activity reminds me of the story Che used to tell about how his parents met: his father went into the factory where his mother, an immigrant from Honduras, was working. Brian made an inspirational speech encouraging the women to demand fair working conditions, and Belinda, despite not understanding English, was so inspired by the passion in his speech that she walked over, turned off the power in the factory, and led the other women on a walk-out.

Brian said, "I'm going to marry that woman."
