So many of us sit, think and still wonder, But have we ever gave ourselves the chance to ask? Well no! We just rejoice and find oursleves floating on cloud nine because "it is just another public holiday"
So many of us have cherished this day, as a day of drinking, parting and being in the family way. Which "Us" am i refering to? Well it is the youth of South Africa, That can only sing "Freedom is coming tomorrow" very well without knowing the significance of that freedom and what it took for this freedom to come
well let me take you back to the hands of time. In June 16, 1976 the mongoloid youth of South Africa marched down the streets of Soweto for this freedom we have today.
BLOOD SHADE, SCREAMS, EXPLOIDING SOUNDS and the cries of faces without races filled the streets of Soweto.
Parents feared for the lives of their children, but who knew that adolescents could be so brave?
They stood together in unity, the same unity we lack today. Fought for what was right and that came with their African roots, which we nolonger honour today,
they fought against the usage af Afrikaans as the main language of communication at schools. And look where it left us today. We have the Right to choice and the Freedom of association.
And not forgeting that, they left us with the courage to say "WE ARE PROUDLY SOUTH AFRICANS"
