Day 2457: Chronicles of An Aspiring South African Humanitarian

Do all the good you can as often as you can because it’s the right thing to do not because you think people will thank you – that’s my message to the world.

 

It’s 12 : 20 PM on day 2457 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, have breakfast,  read John 4: 16 and learn a new word – Definitions for brinkmanship
the technique or practice of maneuvering a dangerous situation to the limits of tolerance or safety in order to secure the greatest advantage, especially by creating diplomatic crises.

 

This year has been somewhat different from previous years in that I’ve be working much more in my own town suffice to say it has been both challenging and rewarding sometimes at the same time my family is ready to have me committed for dragging them to a place in town that everybody else is scared to enter I know that I’m putting myself and my parents at risk and yes sometimes the community I work in responds in ways even I don’t expect but my job is to help however I can how they receive that help and what they do with it after I leave is something that  I have relinquished control over (if I could walk I seriously probably would have been killed by now I have no fear at all I will go into any township in town and feel totally safe).
