Voice: Frederico Cavalcante

“Love Wins” Project is inspired by the sad massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14, 2012. This tragedy provoked by Adam Lanza, 20 children and six adults, as well as the shooter’s own mother, succumbed innocently. Adam committed suicide next, but he left the pain to those who had losses and a warning so we need to rethink our existence, our values and mission. Thus, we put art as a messenger of peace, remembering what we want to forget, forgetting what we do not want to remember.

“And if longuing have a color, it should not be painted black. It should have a warm color, a savor coming from my heart. In this heart I bear the weight of parting, open wings dare to open. It should have a warm color, a savor coming from my heart. Open wings dare to open. Me without you an emptiness without end… I ask why but there’s no answer for me. I fly high without direction without sensing I seek out love that love I shall attain (but there is no answer for me). Love conquers, love heals, traced out for you. Love comes, love goes, bring it al-ways closer.” (Leonor Alvim Brazão)
