Tribute to Marquez

Due to the recent death of Marquez, I attempted to find a tribute video honoring his death. What I discovered pleasantly surprised me. Columbia's President, Juan Manuel Santos, declared three days of mourning. In the video, citizen interviews show the respect and appreciation of Marquez and all of his work as an author and Poet Laureate. People everywhere mourned the death of Marquez, while still celebrating him and remembering his honor.

The way Marquez could take the stories that he heard from people and transform them into amazing stories that wove together is amazing. And the fact that he's gone is such a big impact on the Latin American world he is truly somebody that should be missed.
