Hamba Kahle, Comandante Chavez

Hamba Kahle*, Comandante Chavez! The light may have gone out from your eyes, Comandante, but the torch you lit, remains ablaze. You may have passed away from this mortal life, Comandante, but you have passed on, your immortal ideals. Today our hearts are heavy with sorrow, Comandante, yet you left our hearts so much heavier, with hopes of a more just tomorrow. The light may have gone out from your eyes, Comandante, but you live! You live! Hasta la Victoria Siempre, Comandante! Hugo Rafael Chavez Frias (1955 - 2013) * - "Hamba Kahle" means "go well" in Zulu
