referendum


It's been a while since my last post! I'm terribly sorry about that, but these days have been just crazy! Well, this post is not going to be a long one (are you feeling relieved?) because today I don't have much time. Ok, the fact is I have so many things I want to post here, but no time to do it...but, it's been a while since I wanted to post something on a big event that we had here in Brazil: a referendum. For those who don't have a clear idea on what this is, go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Referendum. What was this referendum about? It was about disarmament. If you agreed with disarmament (i.e., if you didn't want people to have guns at home any more), you had to (and when I say HAD TO, I really mean it, since here in Brazil the vote is not a right but a duty of the citizens) vote YES; if you were against disarmament, then you had to vote NO. Guess who won? The NO, of course, and I'm not very happy with it. I really don't think disarmamente would have been a solution, but I don't agree with people carrying guns wherever and whenever they want to. I bet you guessed by now that I voted YES. Well, I just hope Brazil won't get more violent than it already is (in spite of evidence showing the contrary)... What do you think about it? If you were a Brazilian, what would have you voted for? Post a comment on it! (if you want more info on that, just go to: http://www.guardian.co.uk/brazil/story/0,12462,1599331,00.html)

My sweet sweet darling, I'm just amazed how wonderful you are. I'd love to have a Brazil with no guns, but even if this thing had had yes as result we wouldn't be free of violence. But, what can I say? I voted yes myself, afterall, the world I wanna live is the same one you want.
