In Memorian by CelticBotan In Memorian by CelticBotan
"Some wounds never heal
Some tears never will dry for the unkind,
Cry for mankind"

("The Kinslayer", by Nightwish)

"Try to forget this
Try to erase this
From the blackboard"

("Jeremy", by Pearl Jam)

In memory of the 12 children who died and many others who almost died yesterday, April 7th, 2011, when a gunman entered an elementary school in Rio de Janeiro and opened fire against the kids.

I followed the news yesterday, by the internet and Twitter, but watching the news on TV at night, the videos of children running away in fear, blood covering their bodies, the parents crying for their daughters and sons, made me realize the dimension of it, and how it crossed all the limits imagined.

This is my way of praying and sending my thoughts to all the families who lost someone on that massacre.

Denalli, an original character created by ~Kurofye14 and me, is not only the Elemental of Rainbow and Arts, but she's also the Guardian of Children, and that's why I chose her to this tribute.

"Algumas feridas nunca saram,
Algumas lágrimas nunca secarão por quem é cruel,
Chore pela humanidade."

Tente apagar isso
Do quadro negro."

Em memória às 12 crianças que morreram e às muitas outras que quase perderam suas vidas ontem, 07 de Abril de 2011, no massacre de Realengo, Rio de Janeiro.

Acompanhei as noticias pela internet e Twitter durante todo o dia, mas foi apenas à noite, assistindo o jornal e vendo aqueles videos onde as crianças corriam apavoradas e cobertas de sangue, os pais chorando pelos filhos mortos, que me fez visualizar a dimensão do aconmtecimento e como isso ultrapassou todos os limites possiveis e imaginaveis.

Essa é a minha forma de rezar pelas familias e pelas crianças que perderam a vida nesse massacre.


Denalli é uma personagem original criada pela minha amiga ~Kurofye14 e eu; a escolhi para esse tributo porque, além de ser uma Elemental do Arco-Iris e das Artes, ela também é a Guardiã das Crianças.

Love your work! We are producing a video entitled "A Time to Heal" and would love permission to include some of your pieces. We will have both an English version and a Spanish version. Full credit on the video of course and we have already completed a half dozen successful projects with amazing artists like yourself : )
Thank you so much for your consideration.

Senseless violence is such a tragedy. I simply don't understand why people do this. This art is a beautiful tribute though: the colors in the eyes...

This brought tears into my eyes, I had no idea about the incident in Rio de Janeiro, normally I get updates from CNN on my phone.
So much emotion, it must've been horrible to see what those kids saw! 12 more kids to be added to the "Massacre of the Innocence" list.
What is wrong with the world we live in?

I'm very sorry to hear and read about this. As you might know there were similar school massacres here in Germany, the last one in 2009 where 16 people died. I feel very sorry for the victims and their relatives.
