I never shared the religious fervor (but I did his dignity and his fervor for liberty and justice for all Cubans) with which Payá carried out his struggle. Nevertheless, I always admired his faith because due to the constant evidence that a large part of humanity are beasts, undeserving of the worthy and thoughtful beauty that idealists brand humanity, it sustained him during his worse moments and gave him the strength throughout his life to confront a cruel, inhospitable, and treasonous reality. I hope that in his last seconds that faith wrapped itself around him, protecting him from all pain and receiving him as a great human being. My condolences to his family and to all of us for another loss in vain in exchange for more misery and more lies. For all of us, for this 54-year-long mourning that suffocates us.
