The void that Chavez has left

A powerful man that I despised died today. His power has left a void. We all need to stare at that void for a while to understand how it was possible and to what extent, ONE  man was able to define the lives of almost 25 million people for 14 years. No matter what ideology, what agenda, what ‘social goodness’ is behind a desire to change things, when power is gained for so long, it always corrupts. And we, as citizens, are responsible for giving up that power. Let’s not let that happen again. It has cost us so much.
