“I am honored to be back in Belize, and I wanted to start tonight by offering some words of thanksgiving for the life of Hugo Chávez: The late president of Venezuela.
Hugo Chávez was a great, great patriarch, and a great servant of the masses of the people. He was so strong in his desire for the masses of the people of Venezuela, to partake of the wealth of Venezuela, that he earned the wrath of the oligarchs who ruled Venezuela, and the government of the United States of America, and others, who seem to be negative whenever somebody rises for the mass poor of the nations.
Hugo Chávez is a man that comes once, maybe, in a 100 years. But I would like to say to the people of Venezuela, and to all of those who benefitted from the charitable behavior of President Hugo Chávez, there’s a verse in The Qur’an that goes like this:
“Speak not of those who die or are slain in the way of God as ‘dead’.
They are alive, but you perceive not.”
