For Brazilian Father's Day and a personal tribute to a symbolic Brazilian father, Sr.Miguel Arraes, who died yesterday.
Our symbolic fathers are dying.
Brazilian Federal Deputy Miguel Arraes, was the president of the Brazilian Socialist Party (PSB), and became famous as an opponent to Brazil's military dictatorship between 1964 and 1985.
It's not easy right now to believe in anything here.
Even doing it, I was in doubt about making this tribute, because so much of our hope was stolen. Many, like me, have been fighting and thinking that the Worker's Party (PT) was the best way, the only hope... now we are looking at a Party covered by shame, because we fought more than 20 years for an ethical flag, but these last days there was discovered stupid and unbelievable corruption under the Party's direction.
When I wrote this tribute, I was asking myself if he really was a great guy, if I still could trust in someone.
This is the worst feeling, and sometimes I feel lost.
I decided to make it, because we need to believe, to believe in something until it ends, and the opposition of this man to Brazil's military dictatorship was great, it deserves a tribute.
