Hearing the children's voices singingat the opening of the service, singing for the fallen Hero, the Father of izintandane (orphans), brough tears down my face. I felt their anguish, their pain, their despair in their little voices. I felt their love for Madiba, their longing to have had many years with him. I felt moved when in my own imagination, I saw their faces full of pain and yet pleased to have lived in Madiba's presence. There's no better truth than the one coming out of children's mouths, the truth displayed in their eyes, the truth echoing from their hearts. I do believe that today, among other days, something changed in us, for the better. Let us love and save our children!! Lala ngoxolo Qhawe lamaQhawe!!
