They send a mail for the embassy of Brazil in your countries denounce this injustice
Release on Flavia’s accident and status of the process.

01.06.1998 – FLAVIA SOUZA BELO, at the age of 10, suffers severe accident when her hair was sucked by the swimming pool drain in the condominium where she lived with her mother and her 14-year old brother, in the neighborhood of Moema, city of São Paulo, Brazil. Flavia experienced cardiorespiratory arrest and since the she is in a vigil coma, a condition that—according to the doctors—is irreversible.

Odele Souza, Flavia’s mother, sued the condominium called Jardim da Juriti, the company Jacuzzi do Brasil, manufacturer of the drain, and AGF Seguro, the insurance company of the condominium. The condominium, due to the fact it replaced the equipment without technical orientation, replacing the previous one with a suction equipment OVERDIMENSIONED in 78%. Jacuzzi, manufacturer of the drain, as it did not warned in its guides about the risks of installing an overdimensioned equipment in relation to the size of the swimming pool, and AGF Brasil Seguros, as it did not pay—when required—the amount insured by the condominium. It did the payment only one year and eleven months later, with no interest in arrears or monetary adjustment.

During these almost nine years in the State Justice, Flavia’s proceedings has had two rulings. In both its was granted an indemnity Odele considered to be too low in face of the severity of the accident suffered by Flavia. Odele appealed from both rulings, but even attaching to the process the reports of experts assigned by the Court, in which was noted the OVERDIMENSIONING of the swimming pool suction equipment, whose drain sucked Flavia’s hair, and even Flavia continuously living in vigil coma for almost ten years, those responsible HAVE NOT BEEN CONVICTED to pay the required amount. Today Odele seeks the divulgation of the case, and expects with that to call the attention to the lack of respect to his daughter’s human rights. She also expects an EXEMPLARY CONVICTION of those responsible for the accident that condemned Flavia to the coma for the rest of her life.

Odele protests against the morosity of the Brazilian legal system in granting Flavia the indemnity to which she is entitled, and call the attention to the danger present in the swimming pool drains, which, without the proper legislation, continue to cause fatal and severe accidents around the world, as it has been documented in Flavia’s blog. Most of the victims are children.

¿Hay algo que no pueda yo hacer? ¿Hay algo de lo que no sea capaz?: no, no lo hay, el mundo me pertenece y toda intensidad es mía, toda fuerza es mía, toda poesía es mía.
¿Acaso tú no me perteneces: sí, me perteneces, eres mía, yo te he creado, antes de llegar a mí la noticia de ti eras solo una idea, pensabas que existías pero esperabas para existir a que yo llenara tu vida, de hecho aún no existes y empezaras a vivir del todo al leer estas líneas, hasta ahora todo ha sido un sueño, la única realidad son mis ojos, mírame, mírame y encuentra en mí la vida que te falta: yo soy tú, tus manos son las mías, respiras porque te respiro, eres porque te escribo, amas porque te amo, la luz de tus ojos es la luz del sol que para ti he creado, que he creado amándote, el mundo entero es una idea tuya que yo he imaginado para que pienses que estás viva; y lo estás: desde que te he mirado estás viva, estás empezando a vivir, estás empezando a ser, te me haces parte de mí, me llenas, te llenas de mí, yo soy vida, tú eres mía, muramos, vivamos, amemos, matémonos amando, amémonos, amémonos, devoremos cada uno al otro y los dos al otro, devorémonos, apetezcámonos, hablémonos, amémonos, nos, nos, nos, y amor, amor.

What Does Love Mean?

What Does Love Mean?

A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, “What does love mean?”. The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined. See what you think:

“When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That’s love.”
– Rebecca, age 8

“When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.”
– Billy, age 4

“Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.”
– Karl, age 5

“Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs”
– Chrissy, age 6

“Love is what makes you smile when you’re tired.”
– Terri, age 4

“Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK”
– Danny, age 7

“Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more.

My Mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss”
– Emily, age 8

“Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen”
– Bobby, age 7 (Wow!)

“If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate”
– Nikka, age 6
(we need a few million more Nikka’s on this planet)

“Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday”
– Noelle, age 7

“Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well”
– Tommy, age 6

“During my piano recital, I was on a stage and I was scared. I looked at all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling.

He was the only one doing that. I wasn’t scared anymore”
– Cindy, age 8

“My mommy loves me more than anybody. You don’t see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night”
– Claire, age 6

“Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken”
– Elaine, age 5

“Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford”
– Chris, age 7

“Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day”
– Mary Ann, age 4

“I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones”
– Lauren, age 4

“When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you” (what an image)
– Karen, age 7

“Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn’t think it’s gross”
– Mark, age 6

“You really shouldn’t say ‘I Love You’ unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget”
– Jessica, age 8

And the final one — Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a contest he was asked to judge. The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child. The winner was a four-year-old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife.

Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman’s yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.

When his mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said,

“Nothing, I just helped him to cry”
