Bem-vindos à Espécie Humana
Translation in the end
A story has been told us. And we’ve learned. One of our characteristics as human beings is knowing how to learn, but we can also unlearn.
And learn again.
And what if we learned to step carefully on the ground, to take it easy, to not leave trades?
Stop. Make silence. Have time. Utopias. Make silence. Have empty spaces. Dream. Admire. Make silence. Invent life possibilities. Invent new ways of action.
Say YES. Sing the need of the present.
Delay the burn of bodies, delay the holocaust.
Wake up. Tell the story differently. Throw a party, make a theater play or an epitaph.
Bem-vindos à Espécie Humana
