Goodbye ‘witness’

2011-09-16 00:00

SATURDAY will be our 51st anniversary special, but it will also be sad as this is the last time I will be getting my beloved Witness, which has been a friend for so long. I can no longer afford to buy the paper and it is like saying goodbye to a relative.

My day started with a mug of tea and the next hour was mine alone to read and enjoy and pray for those who needed intervention.

Also to say thank you for many things.

You are all special doing long hours of work burning the midnight oil and keeping to deadlines, etc.

I appreciate all that you, the journalists, do to keep us informed.

I will miss all of Stidy’s funnies, the letters from readers and the editor’s leading page and information.

I was head girl of my school and won a debating cup in the Northern Cape and appreciate good debate.

I will miss you dear friend, The Witness.

Most of all, I will miss the opportunity of seeing some of my own work published.

So, I say a huge thank you and may you all be blessed for the years to come and get daily strength and inspiration. God bless you all.

Saturday will be my last day of receiving the paper. I am praying for a miracle.
