Day 2467: “June 16 Youth Day Drawing Tribute (Time-Lapse)“ by Michael Cost

“Our youth are the crucial stakeholders as we address our challenges and work towards building our future with a shared vision.”  – Catherine Constantinides

 

It’s 9 : 58 AM on day 2466 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, have breakfast, read Proverbs 3:9 and learn a new word – Definitions for expostulate
to reason earnestly with someone against something that person intends to do or has done; remonstrate: His father expostulated with him about the evils of gambling.

 

Today is Youth Day here in South Africa – a day that honours the youth of 1976 who fought against the introduction of Afrikaans as the medium of instruction in local schools – and in honour of that I’m sharing a video made by Michael Cost to pay tribute to all the young people who fought and died for many in South Africa.

Day 2001: “Things Not To Say To A South African / African” by Michael Cost

There are so many misconceptions about South Africa perpetuated by the foreign media – that’s what I need the world to know.

 

It’s 12 : 02 PM on day 2001 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Hebrews 12,  learn one new thing –The goose was the first bird to be domesticated by man. An ancient story tells how a flock of white geese raised the alarm when Rome was attacked by the Gauls, and thus saved the city.–have breakfast and work on my 25 Smiles Campaign –  yesterday Debbie McMannis  donated $25 (thanks SO MUCH Debbie for your support it means the world to me :) ) which brings the total raised to $3 247 only $3 003 more to raise by 10 Jan 2017  (SO SO SO GRATEFUL to everyone who has supported this campaign so far :)  ).

 

Yesterday I watched “Things Not To Say To A South African / African” by Michael Cost and I thought it was hilarious even though I had watched it a few times before the stuff in the video is actually what foreigners say to South Africans I try to laugh it off life is too short to get offended about everything.
