I made a Facebook post asking the following question: If you could use one word, phrase, sentence to sum up the year 2013 for Brazil, what would you say? Here were some of the most popular responses:

Se você tivesse que resumiro año de 2013 para o Brasil em uma frase, o que você diria?
Vem pra Rua Come to the streets!
O gigante acordou! The giant awakes!
Que seja só o começo. It is only just beginning.
Daqui pra frente tudo vai ser differente. Here and in the future, everything is going to be different.
Trabalhar e lutar sempre pelo que se sonha. Always fight for what you believe in.
