Thank you friends and family for the birthday wishes. I dedicate this day to all the Yanomami communities that are fighting the spread of Covid-19. Imagine how difficult it must be for Yanomami communities so remote and isolated unable to to receive emergency medical care and intervention.
They are at an extremely high risk for rapid spread of this devastating disease. I appreciate all of the medical personnel in Venezuela and Brazil that are on the front lines trying to to contain it and treat the sick.
I believe that my mother and my village are safe. I have no means of contacting them but I hope they moved inland and remained there cut off from the outside world. My birthday wish is for everyone to take a moment to learn something about them today.

As I spend this day with some introspection, I can't express enough my deepest gratitude for all those who supported me and encouraged me to be the man, partner, father, brother, and son I am today and to continue my mission to support the Yanomami people.
