Quando o país que respira futebol vive o pior dia de sua história.Quando uma foto congela o sentimento de toda uma nação estampado na postura de uma criança. Consternação.Quando uma tragédia atua como um divisor de águas: de um lado a separação, do outro a união. Ambas ligadas por um amor em comum. O esporte. O futebol. Aquela coisinha que faz você roer as unhas de nervoso, que faz você comemorar títulos, que faz chorar as derrotas e que hoje, fez você chorar novamente, infelizmente não pelo placar, mas pela fragilidade da vida.— Laira Tomaz
