While procrastinating this evening, I decided to log onto Facebook. Immediately a class mates’ status caught my eye, “There is a time in ones life when you read something that could spark a revolution”  and there was a link attached to it. Naturally, curiosity took over and I clicked on the link.

True to his word what I read was revolutionary, I am glad someone had the balls to say it.

Racism is a loose and broad but ONE-SIDED term in this country and it’s tearing our democracy apart. Black people weren’t the only ones who suffered during Apartheid. It took all kinds to fight for freedom in South Africa, we did it together.

Embrace all kinds of beauty, we’re all South African.

Here’s the link to the article: http://m.news24.com/news24/MyNews24/I-am-a-racist-20120522


Some mid-week inspiration.

As I’m sure you have all gathered, I firmly believe that people should voice their opinions and back their beliefs up with actions to match.

At present, I literally still have goosebumps from a short film that I just watched on YouTube. “KONY 2012 is a film and campaign by Invisible Children that aims to make Joseph Kony famous, not to celebrate him, but to raise support for his arrest and set a precedent for international justice.”

I have shared this film on Facebook and Twitter, not just because I believe in this campaign but because I feel that this campaign should INSPIRE people to stand up and make a difference, because ONE person can make a difference.

This film made me think.

As South Africans we face our own challenges such as corruption, crime, etc. Take a second and ask yourself just how much and what you have done to take action and fight for what you believe in.

How much do you know about the Secrecy Bill? How much do you care? Do you know how it will affect EVERYBODY, not just journalists?

I encourage you to watch this short film and to share it. Make a difference.

Take action and find out what you can do to help make a difference in your own country. Read up on the Secrecy Bill & visit the Right2Know website: www.r2k.org.za
