The AP reports:

In Bolivia, American actor Sean Penn joined a candlelight vigil on Monday wearing a track suit emblazoned with the colors of Venezuela’s flag, just like one that Chavez has worn.

“He is one of the most important forces we’ve had on this planet. And I will wish him nothing but that great strength he has shown over and over again,” Penn told a crowd at the vigil, his voice quavering with emotion.

Penn called Chavez “inspiring.”

Chavez first announced he had been diagnosed with cancer in June 2011.
