But we are all Venezuelans”. In the next scenes of the video covering the whole scene, the soldier placed his hand on her head: that hand emanated force and power, and yet – guided by the older woman’s determination – it seemed capable of great delicacy, almost a caress, as if begging for forgiveness.
