When it comes to peace, how would you describe yourself?
I feel the pain in the world
What do you believe are the 'burning issues' today?
War, Hunger, Poverty, Education, Our Planet, Violence, Human Rights, Our Shrinking Freedom, Other
So what is it?
Religious Freedom
What must we overcome to achieve peace?
Lack of love in people's heart. I mean, I believe peace stems from love as Jesus Christ himself taught us: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind. [...] Love your neighbour as you love yourself" (Matthew 22: 37-39) And, just in case we misunderstand who the 'neighbour' is, another verse makes it clear that love is the only thing we should owe someone (Romans 13:8), whoever the person is: "But I say unto you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you (Matthew 5:44).
Can we change the world?
More about me
I am a teacher of English in Rio de Janeiro-Brazil whose job is two-fold: I work with teachers' continuing education and I teach teenagers (mainly from low-income families) at a school in the public sector.
I am a Christian believer, which, for me, does not mean a religious bond or label. My faith is set beyond prejudice or hatred as I do believe "God loved THE WORLD so much that he gave his only son [...] God did not send his son into THE WORLD to be its judge, but to be its saviour." (John 3: 16-17).
I speak Portuguese (my mother tongue), English and French (I wish I spoke other languages) and I can read Spanish. I am very fond of art - literature, cinema, music, painting, dance... And I love being in contact with nature. Thanks God I was born in Rio de Janeiro, where I have always lived. It is a beautiful seaside city with a forest in the middle of its urban area (see Tijuca National Park) and many other amazing places to go walking or trekking, such as mountains and waterfalls.
I think I am very sociable and good-humoured; in fact, I am said to be a very witty person. And generous, thoughtful, trustworthy... "Bah!" OK, fair enough, it all sounds awfully boring and conceited. Sorry!
Now, as far as my weaknesses go, I'd rather skip the topic, but let's face reality. Well, I can get verbose at times, as one must have already noticed. Also, as a typical Virgo, I stick to details. I myself do not know much about Astrology but a friend of mine usually provides me with some food for thought. Besides, I can get rather analytic and critical (even or mainly of myself). Unfortunately, I sometimes tend to be silly enough to search for perfection - ma non troppo! Er... I have just realized that I have been foolishly waiting for the perfect moment of my life to have a pet. How come I still do not have one? I love animals!
Promise to respect others and refrain from spamming?

Fim dos inimigos

Se você matar por raiva,
Seus inimigos nunca acabarão;
Se você matar a raiva,
Isso matará seus inimigos de uma vez por todas.

Tenha uma semana cheia de paz!!

Dear friend Edwiges

First of all I want to thank you for your friendship and the moments of peace that we shared.
But now, I want to ask for your contribution to help save the Amazon rainforest, signing the petition on page
It follows the translation below

Not Half Amazon

There is a draft law that will accelerate the destruction of the Amazon.
The forest is responsible for most of the rain that supply the South and Southeast, guaranteeing the country a great advantage in agricultural production and generating energy. Even that comes to your home.
Each time a tree in the Amazon is overturned, this heritage is threatened
The problem is serious. And you can help prevent
This sheet here on the side can be yours. Join

Tank you very much. Have a peaceful day
