Bope Going to War
They are going to war.
A Bope yelled, his fist in the air. The rest of the truck followed. A neighbor clapped in response and it started a commotion. With each truck, the few but spirited neighbors cheered for the men. The men cheered back.
I even had a moment. I was in the window with my two boys. We were cheering for our men before they went into war. One looked right at the boys and I, smiled a proud smile, and waved. It almost brought a tear to my eye.
Just like the American troops, the Bope are going into war. It's not their fault there's a war, they are just the men Rio de Janeiro puts in to fight their physical battle. Regardless of the politics, the is it or isn't it of this situation in Rio de Janeiro, these men are going to war. They are putting their life on the line. They deserve our cheers!
