Dec 11, 2012 Comments Off on Emotional Sean Penn Calls Ailing Hugo Chavez ‘Inspiring’ At Vigil Dinah Tellya
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.
