I’m so blown away on this fine African summer’s afternoon I actually don’t quite know how to begin. Over a hasty cup of coffee tucked in between meetings (should be banned, what a waste of precious time), I came across this article on a girl called Sarah. Be warned it will stop your heart and my mocha chocolate was liberally flavoured with salty tears. Now the thing is, it wasn’t so much the attack as such – as dreadful a thing as that is to say one has almost got used to to violence againt women – fabulous is the human race 😦
What freaked me out was the process – the cold, calculated set up by someone close. The deliberate, evil intention to do harm to this precious being AND the response by so many people to fulfill her supposed desires. What does this say about humanity (some of the locals felt sorry for the attacker!) – where is the compassion, where is the (excuse the pun) humanity?
Do yourself a favour today and read this article – tell others – and never let it happen again. My hat off to all the survivors and to everybody that has had the courage to speak out.
