David Bacon is  one of . . . . well, since I don't revere heroes, I should say,  one of my only heroes.

Bacon documents the struggles of working and marginalized people with dignity every day. 

A man of his talent could make a lot of money. 

He chooses to dignify the working poor.

He chooses integrity.

You can see integrity in the eyes of the people he photographs.

May I be so blessed as to see dignity in every human being I pass.
