Mr. Charles Lawyerman and Mrs. Agnes Lawyerman were simple people who lived in a small town in the interior of São Paulo, Brazil. They lived quietly in a small neighborhood known as "Raia".
It is said that in the creation of this neighborhood, in 1874, there was a Chapel and in front of the Chapel there was a large space that was used for horse races and presentation of “Cavalhada” during the feast of the Divine.
“Cavalhada” is a traditional Portuguese celebration that originated in medieval tournaments, where aristocrats exhibited their dexterity and value in public spectacles, and often involved themes from the Reconquest period. It was a "tournament that served as a military exercise in the intervals of wars and where nobles and warriors cultivated the praxis of gallantry.
On horseback the hollow clay balls filled with flowers and ashes were thrown on the battlefield. These gentlemen recreated the medieval tournaments and battles between Christians and Moors. In this courtyard, from 1874 to 1920, the "caballeros" were held, a tournament with 24 horses, specially dressed, representing 12 Moors and 12 Christians, who waged a simulated fight with several events, ending in an agreement, in a form of "peace ".
From there, the neighborhood where Charles and Agnes lived, was known as the " Raia Neighborhood".
They were proud of their son David Lawyerman, an intelligent boy who loved nature, animals, and things related to the evangelical church they frequented.
David was a very obedient boy to his parents. He liked to play in the street with the kids. Living in a very humble home, he feared God and shared his affection with family, friends, neighbors and the whole city.
And when David grew up the problems came and this is his story.
