Today would’ve been the 64th birthday of the Venezuelan Lion, the Bolivarian Miracle Man, the Grandsire of Latin American Revolt In Century 21: El Comandante Hugo Rafael Chávez Frías. To simply say that we miss him and wish he was still here would be gravely insulting to the concepts of longing and wishing.
