A amizade da @andreawerner_ foi uma das maiores surpresas e presentes da vida. Nunca hesitei em apoiá-la, e faria tudo de novo. Amanhã se concretiza toda a luta dela, que é de verdade e não tem prazo de validade.

Se você é de SP, pode votar em quem se importa de verdade. #50005
Nos próximos dias, a galera do bonde da defesa das pessoas com deficiência vai sumir. Quem é de verdade vai ficar.

Sendo eleita ou não, @andreawerner_ já é gigante. Já fez e vai continuar fazendo tanto por tanta gente.
E eu amo que em nenhum momento dessa campanha ela precisou inventar historinha ou atacar alguém pra se sobressair - ao contrário do que fizeram com ela muitas vezes.

Isso é prova de caráter.

"The people I passed every morning as I walked up the school's steps were full of hate. They were white, but so was my teacher, who couldn't have been more different from them. She was one of the most loving people I had ever known." Image
"I remember turning onto the street. I saw barricades and police officers and, just, people everywhere. When I saw all of that, I immediately thought that it was Mardi Gras. I had no idea that they were here to keep me out of the school." Image

Happy birthday to the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, the first person to claim Nobel honors twice, and the only woman to win the award in two different fields: Marie Curie, born #OnThisDay in 1867 in Warsaw.
"Sometimes my courage fails me and I think I ought to stop working, live in the country and devote myself to gardening. But I am held by a thousand bonds (...) and don't know whether, even by writing scientific books, I could live without the laboratory."
