“It might be hard for you to understand this being an outsider; but South Africa holds the souls of its sons and daughters in an almost inescapable gasp. History cast all of us in a strange and gripping drama, but I had deserted the stage.

ican became “politically aware”...The journey of my “political awakening”Thanks, once again, Madiba for all you have done for the “always beloved country”This little e-book of memories is for you and all South Africans(written in the very dark days of June 1992)Reflections on my very privileged journey “born under Apartheid”I was born in 1950, two years before the National Party won the election in South Africa and imposed the harshest racial legislation the world has ever known. Here is the story of my journey and the first stirrings of my “political awakening”...This work is also dedicated to all those people who over the years fought for a free and democratic South Africa. It is especially dedicated to those who made the supreme sacrifice in paying with their lives, the "supreme sacrifice". I'll only name a few: people like Steve Biko, Neil Aggett, David Webster, Abdul Timol and Hector Petersen, the schoolboy and the first shot dead in the Soweto uprising of 1976.It is especially dedicated to all those people who have suffered under the OLD SOUTH AFRICA of racism and oppression...and that is ALL SOUTH AFRICANS. Apartheid divided not only blacks and whites, but everyone.SEA AND SANDSea and sandMy loveMy land,God bless AfricaSea and sandMy loveMy land,God bless AfricaBut more the South of AfricaWhere we live....Bless the angry mountainsAnd the smiling hillsWhere the cool water spillsTo heal the earth's browBless the children of South AfricaThe white childrenAnd the black childrenBut more the black childrenWho lost the sea and the sandThat they may not lose loveFor white childrenWhose fathers raped the land....Sea and sandMy loveMy land,God bless AfricaMany sunsetsGold and crimsonHave dripped on the horizon,Weeping for the dying day.Many dawns have risenIn timely resurrectionFrom their cradles of lightSunsets and dawnsDawns and sunsetsI have seen them allBut when,Oh when will I see that dayWhen love will walk the common wayTo heal my wounded peopleAnd break the shackles around their hearts?- Don Mattera.Dec 2013“Watching children growis like threatening the ivyto climb the garden wall.You wait for it to happenyou hurry it along with love.But still you’re disappointedat giving someone life enoughto walk off on their ownand not be carried in your arms.You never turn back – not once,and yet one day they’ve grown apartor tallerGiving love to childrenhas made us older overnight.”•Rod McKune#I don’t know how the story will end, but I do know how it began...
