AMONGST THE Olympic excitement and the standard Facebook drivel spilling down my feed, I came across this video and a plea from a good friend in Caracas, Venezuela. It stopped me in my tracks, and the video blew me away — not only because of what’s happening in Venezuela right now, but the fact that I’d heard so little about it in the American media.

From my friend in Caracas:

PLEASE TO ALL MY FRIENDS THAT KNOW ME AROUND THE WORLD, MOSTLY MY FRIENDS IN USA AND THE REST IN THE WORLD! THIS IS A MUST WATCH VIDEO OF WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON IN MY BEAUTIFUL LOVELY COUNTRY! MY PEOPLE ARE FIGHTING AND DYING TO GET FREEDOM AND FOOD…
