After almost two weeks of blogging, I realize that while Hugo Chavez is desperately closing radio stations, the voice of the people will find a channel to reach an audience. I sit her now, typing this post comfortably watching my favorite soup opera and turning to my computers during commercials to type a few words. I have that freedom, there is no pressure to think about what words to use, or think about my tone or style. I simply sit here and hope that something will come to mind and write about that.
In two weeks, over 38 people has visit and comment on my blog. Their opinion and insight of the situation in Venezuela are great inspiration to continue with this task, which at first was an assignment and has turned into a passion. I never expected to connect with so many people, from different backgrounds and ideology but unified with one purpose in mind: to find a solution. Chavez wants to isolate the opposition, he is afraid his followers would turned against him. He knows how powerful and effective is the use of communication, the use of the media and a collective message.
Unfortunately, Hugo Chavez cannot stop the desire and will of those who wants a Venezuela free to all. A nation that will have problems, just like any other nation in the world, but it will be able to find a solution through a Democratic channel. It is somewhat of a paradox that the Internet, an invention that in its root is based in a Socialist principle is helping the opposition to continue to deliver a message of hope and inspiration to others wherever they may be. I know that when you read this post you will find the drive to continue to peacefully speak out, to maintain alive the channel of communication so others can find a mean to connect and share ideas. The use of technology has expanded the borders of our nation to a global proportion. No longer the opposition is found in the demonstrations and marching peacefully, we are everywhere there is a live connection to the the Internet..
