Innocent lives lost - for what?!

07 June 2012, 14:33

Reading through the articles on Beeld and News24 everyday makes me more and more fearful.

We live in a beautiful country, rich in fauna and flora, great weather and great people. There is nothing more beautiful than a South African sunrise.

But with this beautiful sunrise comes heart ache and anger. More and more inncoent lives being taken by others.

I read in the news this morning about a young lady, 29, being shot and killed in Centurion. I knew her. Why kill a person for nothing?  What did she do to the person who did this? She was kind, well liked young lady with a good heart. Minding her own business and then ... All gone.

A whole family destroyed in mere seconds.

I fear for the lives of my family and friends. My children; please God, may we never go through something like this! Has lives become so cheap?

My only prayer is that someone, with brain power, comes up with a solution for us to help fight these monsters. And soon.

In reply to Max du Preez

Hey Max, howya doin'? Let me start right up front - I agree with you, South Africa is NOT a failed state. I was in Zimbabwe a couple of weeks ago, and I have seen what a failed state looks like, first-hand, and it's not us. Read more...
