This happened few days ago (7/22) when the president of the Republic of the Philippines delivered his State of the Nation Address(SONA). Since this is an important event, many of the police force were deployed to secure the location and prevent any demonstration or protest near the vicinity. In this picture Police Officer 1 Sevilla was being harassed by a foreigner by being asked : “Why are you doing this? Why are you hurting us?”, even though he is just standing there.
He simply replied: “I am a policeman, I’m just doing my job.”
PO1 Sevilla tries to hold his tears but can’t. With no proper rest, no proper meal and a violent protest being dispersed violently and with extreme exhaustion, he still stood his ground.
Some protesters apparently noticed the crying cop and settled down. Some tried to console him as he tried hard to control his emotions and tears. Some protesters tapped his shoulders and offered him a handkerchief to wipe his tears.
He finally gave in to his urge and started to silently weep as another violent turmoil started in front of him.As another violent clash ensued, he stood his ground despite of some protesters throwing rocks and bottles.
Before he was removed from the front line, some protesters tried to protect him and hugged so that the other protesters wouldn’t harm him. After this incident, some people considered PO1 Sevilla as an example of humility, a seeker of peace and a loyal servant of justice.

Niemeyer’s Latin America Memorial building hit by fire
Authorities in Brazil’s largest city, Sao Paulo, have fought a major blaze at a landmark building designed by architect Oscar Niemeyer.
A large plume of smoke billowed from the Latin America Memorial, a cultural centre which hosts an art gallery, an auditorium and other facilities.
At least 15 firefighters were injured as dozens of crews went to the scene.
He designed the main government buildings in the futuristic capital, Brasilia, developing a style defined by sweeping curves and stark concrete.
The Latin America Memorial, built in the west of Sao Paulo in 1989, was empty at the time of the fire and authorities say no members of the public were hurt. The cause of the fire is unclear.
