Wednesday in memory of brave Mother …

As you know a I have small collection of Cordels and this week my daughter bought a couple more to add to the collection.

One, I will treasure, it is the true story of Claudia De Silva Ferreira a mother of 4 who was fatally shot in police gunfire during a military police operation on March 16, 2014 in the Morro da Congonha favela.  

My daughter lives in a favela along with many thousands of key workers of the city, like Claudia who worked in the local hospital.  They go about their business daily,  never afraid of their neighbours and should not live in fear those who are supposed to keep them safe.  

So a little over a year later it would seem this unstable situation has not yet improved, innocent people remain vulnerable and at risk.  So today I remember Claudia and her family who are still grieving her loss.
