"To be happy we need the lives of others..." Jose Mujica

In this edition of Patria Grande we reproduce the speech that Jose Pepe Mujica gave on the occasion of assuming the pro-tempere presidency of the VIII Summit of Unasur. It was the eighth and last meeting of the Council of Heads of State and Government of the Union of South American Nations(Unasur), held in Guayaquil, Ecuador, on December 4, 2014.

An emotional discourse full of deep analysis, and with clear messages for all, mainly young people, to give meaning to life. Whatever the situation, or the reader's thinking, it's worth taking 20 minutes of the day to hear these words.
