Renato Sorriso at London Olympics 2012 Closing Ceremony
Let’s take a moment to look at this: Renato Sorriso is - he truly is - a street -sweeper. He became known for always doing his job with a smile on his face, saying hello to everyone, and being generally adorable. He used to work somewhat near where I lived. He made it with 200 USD a month, and still he smiled to everyone and worked hard, whether it rained or under the unmerciful summer sun. He’d swap the street, pick up the garbage bags, and do all the dirty work while smiling (that’s what sorriso means).
He’s a simple guy - a popular guy, that kept on fighting day after day for his life. He took nothing for granted, for nothing was ever granted him without effort. There’s a reason he was the main feature of the Rio ceremony: he truly represents the spirit of the cariocas - of brazillian people - that never give up and always keep on trying with a smile.
You can tell me the opening ceremony won’t be awesome - and maybe it won’t. But from the bit we saw today, it will certainly be touching. And full of hard and dirty work that will be done with a smile on our face, because this is who we are.
We keep trying - with a smile on our lips. And be sure, we will try our best.
