In praise of our land and its glorious spirit

2019-01-17 06:02

Despite all the obstacles we face, South Africa is a nation of great thinkers, a nation of shakers and movers.

We are inspired by the present and the future we (shall) share together. We are inspired by the future so bright that we want to share it with robots in the fourth industrial revolution.

Our past is so sad and shameful, but because we are united as one, we have come to triumph. We are a victorious and a moving nation.

This year, we will be facing each other on the ground, campaigning for the upcoming general elections. At times we will be sharing harsh words.

It will not be because we hate each other. It will be because of the extra love we have for this glorious nation of our forefathers. It will be because we want equal opportunities for each and every child regardless of their colour, gender and race.

This passion is based on the fact that we are inspired to see change not for elite or poor but for all.

We are a nation of many languages, religions and cultures. We are different families but what unites us is the hope of the future. It’s the human kindness we are known for. We are passionate about the human spirit. Doing well for others is something that we participate in with open arms. We have our downfalls and flaws but they don’t keep us down for long. We are driven to reach our destination, our fuel is the human spirit.

We have learned to understand one thing about us, that as South Africans, if we are happy, we can do anything, we can stretch the limit and open up many boundaries. That is exactly what we are preaching to our future generation.
