Day 2462: THANK YOU to the Heroes of the Garden Route

“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.” – Joseph Campbell

It’s 12 : 23 PM on day 2462 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, have breakfast,  read  1 Chronicles 16:12, go to church, and learn a new word – Definitions for aegis 1.protection; support: under the imperial aegis. 2. sponsorship; auspices: a debate under the aegis of the League of Women Voters. Classical Mythology. the shield or breastplate of Zeus or Athena, bearing at its center the head of the Gorgon.

Recently parts of South Africa have been ravaged by fire and while it has been devastating I’m heartened to see South Africa coming together to support those in need. Thank you to the firefighters who are risking their lives to rescue people and to everyone else helping out in different ways.
