Let history not say we stood by as mere spectators as the future of our country was obliterated by an esteemed elite who serve not the people, our people but rather themselves, their friends and their comrades. Let our children never say we did nothing to halt the steaming train headed for political carnage without at the very least trying to derail it from self destruction.
I refuse to let my children someday hold me accountable for the failure of all of us in ensuring the dream that is South Africa would survive a thousand millennia and glorified to eternity as the beacon of hope and belief for the rest of the world. I cannot allow my current government the free reign to lead unchecked and unquestioned even as my fellow brother and sister sits at home idly without the prospect for REAL employment... I will not allow another brother or sister to use stone and brick throwing in efforts to harm me physically to thwart the wishes I have that he or she may find real employment and peace in his or her heart.
I refuse to let the likes of Jackson Mthembu deflect a REAL concern for REAL jobs by using REAL unemployed people to protect and shield themselves from the REAL questions facing youth unemployment. So, though you may throw a brick at me, I remain willing to fight for your cause that you may receive REAL employment, though you may cause me physical harm, my ideals remain unhurt by physical pain, yet rather they are set steadfast that we must question people like Jackson Mthembu, people like Jessie Duarte, people like Jacob Zuma as to why my fellow South African resorts to stealing, maiming and hurting others for the need to feed himself or his family.
This is not a matter of colour, this is not a matter of a political party for I remain unaffiliated, what I am however is a South African with REAL South African dreams and with REAL love for my country. I can therefore respect what the DA has done, I can therefore reject the violence of the march and hold no care as to whom to blame, I only say the DA has shown today that they refused to stand idly by as whole sections of our Society spent days and years on end without a REAL prospect for employment...
