The road to progress, the road of compromise

21 November 2012, 07:05
Sometimes the only road to progress is the road of  compromise. Not the road to the left or to the right,Not the road to the North or to the South,Let us come together and settle our differences.Let us meet halfway.If we put our minds to this, we can do it.All things are possible.

Why not leave a legacy of peace, progress and prosperity to our children? Can we not let bygones be bygones? Can we not be brothers and sister? Can we not love one another as we love ourselves? Can we stop cursing and start blessing instead?
With my lips I wish peace upon you, your family and friends. In my heart I feel it and I'm sure you feel the same. You desire to be the holy one and so do I. You are the chosen one and so am I.We are both chosen to love, to serve, to flourish.

Don't we all breathe the same air?Don't we all need to drink and to eat?Don't we all need to love and to be loved?Don't we both see the rising and setting of the sun?What is so different between us that we should act like this towards each other.

Do you want our kids to only know stories of hatred and anger?Let us turn our swords into plough shares.Instead of tearing down, let us build!You can do it, I can do it.We are not born to fight, instead we are born to love.

Let's just do it. Together we can do it.It doesn't matter anymore who is right or wrong.None of us can remember anyway.

Dignity in suffering

With reference to Sean Davison's article "Assisted dying will save lives" (7/12/2016): How long before people are offered assisted-suicides to free up beds or because of some administrative mix-up? The poor and vulnerable in our society bear the most exposure. Read more...

SA is suffering because of Eskom

We have the sunshine - some of the best in the world. We have the wind. But greedy Eskom is the dog in the manger wanting to control all our futures and our pockets. It's time this monopoly was taken down, for the sake of all South Africans. Read more...

It is so sad that after 22 years into democracy, there are still companies that exploit their workers financially. They deserve better than food and beverages. Read more...
