Fernão Cap used by juris doctorate graduates Gull was different of the majority of the gulls of its flock, who only thought about fighting for food, together to the boats of fishes. It loved flying. He passed entire days alone in the sea, training levelling flights in high speed, for affliction of its parents and disapproval of all. Em.vão tried to make it to them will and to act as the others. Its only interest was to learn more and more on the art to fly. Times without account times if unbalanced, falling violently in the water. After a fall that almost cost it the life, went to give up, but, suddenly, it discovered a way to control its speed. It raised flight, and without thinking about death or failure, it obtained to reach the estonteante mark of three hundred and twenty kilometers, for the moment unimaginable for any another alive gull. Its joy was enormous. Radiating, it thought: the gulls can be free, can look its fish in the sea, instead of being around of the boats of fish, fighting for crumbs. When Fernão Gull came back toward its happy flock, exausto and, after long hours of training, anxious for communicating the great one discovered to them, found the gulls congregated in circle, à its wait. The gull Oldest called it it the center and, for its complete horror, accused it with irresponsible and subversive. It cultivated the sentence: by violating the traditions and the dignity of its species, it was banished of the group forever. Exiled, it started to live alone. Its only sadness was not to be able to share the knowledge that, with intense training, went increasing to each day. Many years later, already well old, in the way of a flight, it found two white and inacreditavelmente shining gulls, that had lead it through the fog. They had said to it: He is in the hour to come back toward house and it understood that he finished to enter in another dimension and another stage of learning.

The destination of Fernão was to be instructor and was growing in its heart the desire to return and to show to the new generation that the life was more than so only a fight for food. Who knows would not have some exiled, despaired to the search of a master? Thus thinking, with the easiness that develops through the practical one, it came back toward the place where its old flock lived. At this moment, the young Francisco Gull, infuriated, flied in direction ace Great Hills, banished forever. It vociferated insults to oldest when, subitamente, it heard in its thought: "It is calmed and it pardoned. It helps them to understand it ". Disciple of Fernão became Gull. To the few, other banished young if had joined they, definitive to fly. One day, Fernão decided to take them in return and to defy the flock. Through acrobatics, they had demonstrated to all the wonder of the freedom. And more younger they had been if congregating they and finally, despite the insults of the majority, who if it decided to fly already was not more I banish from the conviviality of its. Fernão, seeing concluded its mission there, if removed, leaving the Francisco the task to continue to teach. the importance to fly is to perceive that we are not only one accumulated of bones and penalty. We fly and we desire to fly each higher time and better, because we are an idea of the Great Gull, we are an idea of limitless freedom and the paradise consists of reaching the perfection .
