No me había sentido con fuerzas de compartir mi dolor porque aún no nos lo creemos. Una broma macabra que justo con el fin aquí del estado de alarma, la covid se lleve a uno de mis mejores amigos.
Insisto, 45 años, este virus no es ninguna broma. 😰https://t.co/1QswIfC7Qv

Recuerdo mucho a Lucas, sólo estuvo un par de años en nuestro curso en el Merani. Era flaquito, chistoso, arrebatado, sensato. No tenían por qué matarlo. pic.twitter.com/YJbJPuNB1Q

China now reporting https://t.co/dHSJVoItCY that the rocket reentered at 0224 UTC at 72.47E 2.65N which is right over the Maldives. If correct will be interesting to see if we get reports from there pic.twitter.com/NQovz33pqg

Rechazo que policías disparen a protetsantes desarmados. Rechazo que protestantes intenten incinerar a policías. Rechazo la violencia de colombianos humildes contra colombianos humildes. Condeno el discurso de líderes que llaman a la violencia y celebro a quienes llaman a La Paz

A situação é crítica, mas a nossa universidade não deixa de existir. O orçamento atual não nos permite pagar contas e manutenção, e talvez sejamos até obrigados a interditar prédios.

Mas enquanto houver luta, enquanto houver educação, haverá #ufrj.

Waking up to the news that Lucas Villa Vásquez, a Sports Science student and enthusiastic leader, was shot dead while peacefully protesting. This needs to stop. We can't risk more lives. 💔#NosEstanMatando #SOSColombiaNoDuerme #ParoNacional6M #SOSColombiaDDH #ColombiaNecesita pic.twitter.com/zLfHlps0It

An ocean reentry was always statistically the most likely. It appears China won its gamble (unless we get news of debris in the Maldives). But it was still reckless
