Thank You.

12 November 2012, 07:21

Monday, the 12th of November 2012 is Remembrance day here in Canada. A day that Canadians everywhere celebrate and thank the people who have stood up to the world on their behalf.

I'd like to do the same.

Thank you, to my grandparents, and countless others, who worked at the RAF base at Robert's Heights, making airplane parts for the troops.

Thank you, to the thousands of South Africans who served for the Allied forces during WW2, and who helped free the world from a fascist, rascist dictator.

Thank you for giving your time, and your lives, to help secure the future of South Africa.

While I am on the topic though, sorry.

I apologise that the non racist, free, fair and prosperous state you always wanted did not come about. For as long as you opposed apartheid, everything you did, everything you stood for has come to nothing. 

Every time you voted against the NP meant something to you, but the ANC have managed to ensure that today, in SA, if you are white, you're tarred as a NP supporter. So you might as well have taken the easy route. 

No one cares about moving forward in South Africa anymore. Everything is mired in the past, and it looks set to stay that way.

Whatever happens though, I can say that your story has inspired me, and if it takes me twenty years, it will get on paper, and it will get published.

Thank you, to all the people who are no longer with us, who worked so hard to keep the RAF running, and the Nazis off our door step. Without them, there would be no South Africa today.
