Brazilian people have a great craze and love for soccer. What I think is the message is may be football is enough to fill their appetite and crying may be because they are not having it enough.
Food is more important for children than football.
Don’t think much of the message. Like another poster commented, people (including a lot of poor people) celebrated when Brazil was awarded the 2014 World Cup. Do you think there would be no hungry children in Brazil had the event not been held in Brazil?
No. An incompetent, corrupt government and an ignorant, incessantly breeding populace (yes, the poor have a hand – not the whole hand, but a hand all the same) has more to do with rampant poverty than a two-week sporting event.
Brazilian people like football.When they annouced World Cup here people demonstrate great joy.Our poverty isn’t World Cup fault,but a historic incompetent administration.
I think it would be more effective to have the boy looking bewildered. But it says a lot and what it says is true. People know it would be better to help the poor rather than hold a soccer tournament, but we’ll never do it. (The flowers are an unusual touch.)
So good! I’ll share it.
