I am greatly saddened to know that President Hugo Chávez is no longer with us in body.
He will be greatly missed by all decent human beings who yearn for a new world order that raises the sanctity of what it means to be human.
We have lost a great leader, a teacher, and mostly a moral human being who stood up for the poor and the dispossessed in Venezuela and everywhere - even in the belly of the beast.
The responsibility to carry his energy, ideas, and revolution forward lies with each of us in whatever way possible.
Life is never just a matter of living and breathing from day to day. Some live forever even in death.
Hugo Chávez lives forever.
May he be remembered in peace.
