On Tuesday, May 9th, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald shared the sad news that his husband, Brazilian politician David Miranda, had p@ssed suddenly at the age of 37 after a long battle with a terrible illness.
In a tweet to his two million followers, Greenwald said:
It is with the most profound sadness that I announce the passing away of my husband, @DavidMirandaRio. He would have turned 38 tomorrow.
His death, early this morning, came after a 9-month battle in ICU. He died in full peace, surrounded by our children and family and friends. pic.twitter.com/wtRvGyJyGl

In 2005, Miranda and Greenwald, an American expat living in Brazil, had their first meeting on Rio de Janeiro’s Ipanema Beach. They were dating for only five days before they moved in together.
“His mother dἰed when he was 5, leaving him an orphan in Jacarezinho.”
“But a beautiful and compassionate neighbor, Dona Eliane, took him in despite 4 children of her own and deep poverty, became his mom, gave him a chance for a life.”
Mr. Greenwald stated:
“That gave David the chance to live his full potential in a society that frequently suffocates it.”
The way David was raised “always many assumptions made by those who didn’t know David because of how David grew up,” Greenwald said.
Those who knew said that nobody possessed a more potent life force or stronger will. He was an extremely loving and caring dad. He counseled me like a father would. As Greenwald put it, our extraordinary sons, who all got off to rough starts, are his greatest achievement.
