Today is Father’s Day in Brazil

Brad Pitt and his 3 adopted children

 

In Brazil, more than 200 thousand children cannot celebrate Father’s Day or Mother’s Day. They are invisible, living in orphanages, and have between 4 and 19 years old with almost zero chance to get a foster parent. Those that are homeless living on streets are quite disturbing. What Brazilians do? They Close the car window, pretending that they are not there. Others prefer to call them muggers, outcasts, criminals, and advocate for lowering the age of criminal responsibility. Some go even further and exterminate as done in the Candelaria Massacre.

Congratulations to the adoptive parents, who were able to transcend the biological need for love – the true unconditional love.

No Brasil, muito mais de 200 mil crianças não podem comemorar o Dia dos Pais nem o Dia das Mães. Elas são invisíveis, vivem em orfanatos, têm entre 4 e 19 anos de idade e, chance quase zero de lá saírem. Já as que moram na rua, essas incomodam bastante. O que o brasileiro faz? Fecha o vidro do carro e ignora a existência das mesmas. Outros os chamam de trombadinhas, marginais, delinquentes, dogrados e, defendem a redução da maioridade penal. Alguns vão ainda mais longe e os exterminam como feito na Chacina da Candelária.

Parabéns aos pais adotivos, aqueles que foram capazes de transcender a necessidade do amor biológico – o verdadeiro amor incondicional.
