Safe Harbor echoes the values of a vanishing generation – an era when cause and purpose were more important than money. An inspirational poem by Victor Hector Rodriguez (Washington, D.C.) on the universal quest for heroic challenges, feats, answers and…love. Show Date: March 17, 2011.

Victor Hector Rodriguez, an institution builder, dedicated his life to the empowerment of Latinos in the United States by developing participatory organizations and leadership projects. He also ran for the D.C. City Council three times – unsuccessful, but unbowed.

in search of life’s true meaning
so far away from home…”
