Recently, news about fire storms in the Amazonian Forest have popped up on social media, and you may be asking yourself what this is all about. As a Brazilian, I have been asked by my friends about my point of view, and I felt like I should know much more than I actually do about Amazonia. The first two things people ask you when you are a Brazilian is about soccer and the rainforest. The feeling of seeing my own country’s garden burning made me feel like I went back to the day we lost the World Cup. Likewise, I see that this is not just a Brazilian problem. Sometimes, we avoid taking responsibility for events that happen outside of our personal neighborhoods. My hometown in Brazil is more than two thousand miles from the Amazon forest, and I am not proud to say that I have never been there.
