Daily Micro: Yesterday’s Visionaries in Today’s World ~ Simon Bolivar

Acknowledging Simón (José Antonio de la Santísima Trinidad Bolívar y Palacios Ponte y Blanco) Bolivar

They called me El Liberator and I swear to you, my spirit lives in the minds and breaths of my people.

I am the people of the South and in my people there is courage and strength. And genetic memory and we rise, again;
