      ... Brazil had real and valid concerns. I truly hope that this global event will help push the nation to address the concerns of their most vulnerable citizens all the more. Perhaps with the losses of the Brazilian team, the national reflection will go beyond the soccer team and stretch into day to day society as well. Of course we wish this about everywhere, as even in the U.S. a drastic gap exists between the "haves and the have-nots!" But as I mentioned, my mind ...
