Dear Oscar, accept the help I am offering you...

13 April 2014, 09:59
It is no random coincidence that you were chosen to be who you are,
Your place in this world was given to you.

Before you came along, this world has had Million's upon million's of paraplegics, They lived a life with many challenges. More than many able- bodied people could think of or possibly endure.

You are an amazing person with an amazing story.

You have impacted more people than we could have ever known. There must be millions of paraplegic children that have seen your progress and then, somehow seen the possibility for a normal future for themselves.

Have you ever really weighed the matter of how it is that an Afrikaans named boy, with a crisp English accent, a private schooled boy, could have achieved so much on an international stage?

I wrote nearing a year ago and pleaded to you to tell the truth. Many people who believed in you, found me a villain for suggesting your were guilty. It is the only way forward for you.
I suggest that you are filled with a pride, a pride that runs deep in your veins and needs to be drained out.

Who can  lift somebody up, so high?  and who can possibly take it all away, in the blink of an eye ?

The Devil too was chosen as the most high of Angels. He was given intimate secrets from the almighty creator and he lost his place too...

Identifying with pride can be somewhat difficult and I am sure, most people can fall into the trap at times.

There are no coincidences in life ? None ! 

Life is way too complex and organized at a level that man can only relate to in moments. We are just people. Made to a particular perfection to our creator. Whether you see it or whether you don't.

I do not know how it can be possible for you to be esteemed again. In any natural thinking, you are doomed and your fate is sealed. 
You are not garbage Oscar! 

In SA, we have of the highest percentage of sportsman that give thanks to God in the public arena. None of them had the endorsements you were given, None !

Pride cannot grow unless there is an element of ignorance !
Did you really think your training is what placed you in such a limelight ? How much self worship has been happening over the last few years ?

Your story speaks to all of us , each and every one of us.
Jesus came for the murderers, the rapists and prostitutes, Many people, even some Christians do not like thinking or talking about that.
Come on Oscar !

I told you, there are no coincidences in life , None !
Your name is Oscar, referring to an acting award ?
The chances of  being bestowed such a privileged life and then to combine it with the chances of it being removed so cruelly is exponentially rare !
God is using you as he chose to, whether you were playing along or not !
Lighten the burden on those shoulders, Lighten the burden on the people that support you.
Tell the truth...
Not your truth? Tell it as it is....
It will set you free...
Maybe not free from serving time, But you cannot enter that Jail with your current version.
In this situation, if you cannot see that running an Olympic event and winning Gold ,is less rewarding than being able to tell truth, then boy are you going to find out...

Music is magic, music is life.

Music speaks when words no longer can. When you’re down music is your gigantic crane that lifts you right back up. Music gives you a feeling that words cannot describe. Music is magic, music is life. Read more...
