Today marked the anniversary of our democracy. As a South African I am proud of my country and how far it has come. The road ahead is long and bumpy but when we look back at where the journey began, we know that getting on this road was not easy. It took the strength and determination of many. It took immense courage to speak up against the oppression instead of just accepting it.
To the people who paved the way for me to be able to choose my friends based on their personalities and not the colour of their skin, thank you.
Enjoy your freedom South Africa, but don’t forget those who fought so hard to give it to you.
