"Venezuela has learned a lot in a short time. Now, we know the value of unity and consensus and the need to set goals and work to achieve them. Those who believe that things cannot change will start to wake up as long as each of us, the force that drives the change, does what we have to do about the future," Capriles said in a letter published in his personal blog.
