Sorry little boy, please forgive us

21 July 2014, 08:48

To a child life is fun and new and full of adventure and joy.  They should not care or fear for we are supposed to be there to look after them. We are there to care for them, to keep them from harm and pain. We are there to ensure that they grow up surrounded by love and happiness.

On Saturday a four year old boy went out with his family. They were a happy loving family, and he a funny, happy little boy. They went out believing that they were safe and free, enjoying a beautiful day in a wonderful country.  

And then he was killed….. Killed in the most horrific way. Dragged for miles under a car.

Can you imagine the little boy’s fear?

Can you imagine the mother’s terror?

Can you imagine the father’s helplessness?

Can you imagine the little girls cry?

Can you imagine the family’s’ sorrow?

No, we cannot! South Africa has lost that ability.

South Africa, you failed them!

And above all you failed a dear little boy!

May your soul rest in peace little boy. Please forgive us.
