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.

A morose longing for approval

The public responses (and social media comments suggests that they are widespread) by some black people to the recent racist actions of the likes of Andre Slade and other like-minded people are both irrational and baffling.  Read more...
