Blind human rights activist Chen has reportedly died from the torture and beatings he has endured at the hands of the Communist Chinese. However, as this story notes, no one can be sure of whether Chen is alive or dead, given the fact that the Communist government has sealed off access to Chen and has even shot at those trying to get a closer look at whether he is still alive.
Chen Guangcheng has been very active in the past, calling the world’s attention to the barbaric enforcement of the Chinese one-child policy. Whether he is alive or dead, the truth is certain that this blind man could see so much better than most what the value of human life actually is. The video below is an excellent (and short) overview of Chen’s life.
