Sad Day

Today I got a very sad new in the early morning.

A childhood friend was shot in a robbery and died. She ran a small family business and she got surprised by the guys all armed.  They say she didn’t react but got shot anyway. They ran away with a little cash they found and will probably never get caught by the police, like in many cases we unfortunately see everyday here in Brazil.

I can’t even go to my home town to the services because of work.

I pray that her soul may rest in peace and her family find some comfort.

I ran across her many times during my last visits to my parents. She was always smiling, a very happy person.

This morning when I got to know about it I remembered her as a little girl, passing by my house on her way back home.

Her name was Cléo.

Go in peace, Cléo.
