It is not a matter of regarding ourselves superior or inferior related to others, we are different and all our richness is based upon this. Even though, when we see positive aspects from another culture and decide to share, it is food for thought rather than any imposing or criticism. In Brazil, all of us know that military dictatorship is gone but has left its traces, such as fear of occupying opened spaces like squares and parks. As a consequence, these places are submitted to palpable neglecting by the authorities, who could give more serious concern to this matter. I hope that in a near future all of us have decent public parks or squares with security to enjoy a good book for instance, and maybe, ride our bikes back home, safely. Even the ones who live in less favored places of the city, so oftenly forgotten by public power.
