On Violence in Rio de Janeiro - Part IV

Corcovado, Rio de JaneiroImage by svenwerk via Flickr

Oy vey!

The woes of our beloved city. Will there ever be and end?

A flat no! i am not writing about the latest wave of violence in Rio de Janeiro. i am up to here. What good will it bring?  i will only be adding to the surplus of newsreports on bullets ricochetting off sidewalks and people ducking for cover.

i know it is a daunting task. It is like swimming against the current.The more they do to stem the tide the more water comes under the bridge, spilling onto the streets and causing a flood of images we would be better off not seeing.

Now, how can i relate the image above to reality? i could find things to say but i won't.

Take your pick below.

  1. It is a shame too because Rio is one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
