FOOTBALL : CHAPECOENSE TRAGEDY - - SKIES CRY IN BRAZIL AS NATION PAYS TRIBUTE TO FALLEN HEROES !


FOOTBALL : CHAPECOENSE TRAGEDY - - SKIES CRY IN BRAZIL AS NATION PAYS TRIBUTE TO FALLEN HEROES !
The skies are crying in Brazil as the country welcomes home their fallen heroes -- their bodies in coffins draped in white and green -- amidst rains and tears from the grieving public.

The President of Brazil, Michel Temer, leads military honors as the caskets were slowly marched in, the townspeople of Chapeco -- still in shock and sheer disbelief -- watched with glum and somber looks in their eyes.

The haunting images reverberate around the world on TV, and on the internet.

The Chapecoense football team -- white and green , their official team color -- was almost entirely wiped out in a tragic plane crash en route to the biggest match of their lives -- the first leg of the Copa Sudamericana Finals -- a momentous event that could have been their greatest glory but rather was turned into a shattering tragedy.

Their plane, a charter flight from Bolivia bound for Medellin in Colombia, plunged into a mountainside shortly before destination.

Medellin, its team 'Atletico Nacional', was supposed to be the host and the opposing side against Chapecoense in the Cup Championship Finals.

Of the 77 people on board, 71 were killed, including 20 journalists.

Chapecoense had lost 19 players, and its coach.

Six people, 3 of whom are Chapecoense football players, had miraculously survived.

The plane reportedly ran out of fuel and was in total electrical failure, causing the disaster.

Brazil and Colombia were supposed to be 'enemies' in the Championship Finals.

But in pain and tragedy they had become united.

And so is the world of football.

Thousands of mourners pay their respects before send-off in Colombia, and thousands took to the streets in Brazil to welcome the return of their befallen champions.

'Guerreiros' (Warriors), reads one among the sea of signs carried by grieving fans.

'Eternos Campeões' (Eternal Champions), reads another.

The painful tragedy had touched the lives of millions, beyond words.

But tragedy, at times, -- indeed -- could bring out the best in men.

Eles chegaram, os campeões estão de volta, nosso país parou para recebê-los, de hoje em diante não existirá título nenhum no nosso futebol que seja mais reconhecido como esse, e pode ter certeza o que você está vendo nessas imagens nessa triste transmissão não é chuva, são lágrimas caindo do céu, tristeza misturada com orgulho, mas todos eles cumpriram sua missão, e Deus quis que esses campeões fossem jogar ao lado dele no céu, eternos, eles se eternizaram em nossos corações e mudaram nossas vidas, parabéns guerreiros, fiquem na santa paz de Deus que estaremos sempre aqui, a parir de hoje a Chapecoense será o 2º ou até 1º clube de todos os brasileiros, somos todos Chape, somos todos eternos campeões! #ForçaChape #EsporteDeLuto #EternosCampeões #Luto #Chapecoense #Brasil 🙏🏻💚😔
