700 women from the region marched through the streets of Bloemfontein protesting against the requirement for Black women to carry passes (or the Dompas as it was referred to) designating where they could live and work.

I often wonder if declared progress in the medical field is always good.

I have often wondered if a hero and a role model can be one and the same or are they mutually exclusive.

Why are we afraid of death and dying? Are we afraid of death itself or of the dying process? For many dying can take a very long time while for others it is instantaneous

Charity begins at home. No argument with that but where is home? Is it only our immediate family or does it include our extended family as well?
