One month after the death of revolutionary leader and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez on March 5, the outpouring of love, respect and solidarity for Chavez and the determination to continue the democratic revolution continues apace.

It is now very clear that not only Chavistas love and respect this fallen leader, but millions and millions of Latin Americans. Leaders from all over Latin America have paid their respects to this larger than life man.

 Even the most conservative leaders from 33 Latin American and Caribbean nations came to mourn the passing of Chavez. In total, at least 55 presidents, prime ministers and princes attended the formal funeral ceremony in Caracas, some with handkerchiefs in hand wiping tears from their eyes.
