SA needs healing

2008-05-09 00:00

Picture the following images: children of all colour and hue, class and language, laughing and playing together on the school playground; throngs of people visiting the Durban Botanic Gardens, a paradisiacal place of birdsong and green foliage, resonating with people of all races flocking to picnic, celebrate their weddings, walk and meditate upon the serene surroundings. Modern shopping centres glistening with goodies; fancy cars streaming along the well-maintained highways and byways, epitomising a First World society. People at work, people at university, people in the cities, people in the rural areas, people sitting in fast taxis, people talking, people laughing, people playing, people loving, people having babies, people dying, people fighting, people debating, people disagreeing, people being people.South Africa in its normalcy.

And yet, what ought to be reiterated is that this phenomenon is nothing new. If anything, it is strangely familiar and very South African. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
