It's finally over. It brought us tears, smiles, hugs and much much more. In my case, as a peacebuilder, teacher, mum, I couldn't help to read and listen to the news of social unrest in Brasil.

As a Colombian, I grew up with memories of Naranjito 82 (I was 9 and the time) and grew up watching Colombian score 5-0…Continue
