The current political climate in South Africa has everyone up in arms and soon many will be marching the streets… with their arms up (pun intended as I know too little about politics to make this post seem highly intellectual). However, since a writer always has something to say, I would like to leave you with a thought: If you tend a garden really well, you won’t be too bothered when a storm hits – for the surface may perish but the roots will remain and when the next season comes, there’s a fair chance it may blossom again.
Today, let’s remember that we walk upon this soil with a purpose: to grow as a Nation. We are all planted in the same field – why not unite our roots to form a shield? If we all take hands, we leave no room for the enemy to join the circle.
Our roots go deeper than what’s earth-bound; all struggles are seasonal after all.
