A minute of silence….

….for all the victims of terrorism, poverty, social injustice, not only coz today is 5 years of 9/11, but coz everyday in the world thousands of people, inocent people, die victims of the madness that inhabits the brain of the human race…the brain of which we (and seeing the results one should not doubt)  use a very small percentage of.

I will stop in silence for the 9/11 victims, the survivors, the American citizens in general.

But lets not forget that every day in the entire world, thousands of people die in less *advertised* terrorism events, lets not forget Guatemala, El Salvador,you can walk the map….. is huge….

I had a full on day today, and I keep getting more and more annoyed by the Catholic Church, will elaborate some other time, but in a day like this it seem to annoy me even more…..such hypocresy….

For my brothers and sisters, the Brazilians, I speak through the words of a marvelous musicien, a poet called Ze Ramalho, who certainly expresses better than I ever could the way I feel today….if you d like to listen to the song, it's called Admiravel Vida de Gado…. I have no energy to translate at this time, in this day….

nite nite

Pros meus Patricios, vou falar com as palavras do Ze Ramalho, que certamente se expressa bem melhor do que eu….

Vocês que fazem parte dessa massa
Que passa nos projetos do futuro
É duro tanto ter que caminhar
E dar muito mais do que receber
E ter que demonstrar sua coragem
À margem do que possa parecer
E ver que toda essa engrenagem
Já sente a ferrugem lhe comer

Eh! Oh! Oh! Vida de gado
Povo marcado eh! Povo feliz…

Lá fora faz um tempo confortável
A vigilância cuida do ¨normal¨
Os automóveis ouvem a notícia
Os homens a publicam no jornal
E correm através da madrugada
A única velhice que chegou
Demoram-se na beira da estrada
E passam a contar o que sobrou

Eh! Oh! Oh! Vida de gado
Povo marcado eh! Povo feliz…..

O povo foge da ignorância
Apesar de viver tão perto dela
E sonham com melhores tempos idos
Contemplam esta vida numa cela
Esperam nova possibilidade
De verem esse mundo se acabar
A arca de noé, o dirigível
Não voam nem se pode flutuar
Não voam nem se pode flutuar
