Cristina: “I ask the Virgin to continue to give me strength to carry on”
Buenos Aires, October 18, 2012
Cristina Kirchner was in Corrientes to deposit in the Basilica of Itatí one of the flags that was waved in the Falkland Islands in 1966 during Operation Condor, which was commanded by Dardo Cabo.
There, the president asked the Virgin to “continue to give me strength to keep going. It is not the same as when I had him (referring to former President Nestor Kirchner) to my side.”
She added: “I also want to ask the Virgin to protect the Argentines to which we have not yet come to those who lack work, shelter, health and education, until we can get to them from the state.”
“I ask the Virgin to soften the heart and pray for those who still do not understand the need to be supportive. For those that life threw up a destination with education, housing and amenities that include the need to continue working in this direction”.
The president also said that every Argentine can speak when and where they want.
And highlighted the achievements of her administration: “we have expanded the rights of minorities, which place them on an equal to the rest of society.”
