And no, I am not a religious man, but if I were, I would already be praying for all that to happen
“Wherever you are, my heart will be with you, as well as millions of hearts of millions of people around the world who believe in Human Rights, in democracy, in equality and in the freedom of peoples, with the same force as We reject terror, fascism and totalitarianism, which is where Bolivia has fallen this weekend.
