In the midst of all the madness…

Twenty-fourteen has been quite an eventful year: from aeroplanes that have either crashed or disappeared, a video of 16-year old girl raped in the USA goes viral on social media, Nigerian girls abducted in their own country and justice is yet to be declared on the issue, wars and unrest in Gaza, Rihanna wearing a transparent dress to an award ceremony and has the world up in discussion, Solange beating up her brother in-law Jay Z video goes viral…some call it ‘the end of times’.

Amidst all the madness, may we remember a remarkable woman as we bid farewell to another literary giant, this time one of our own in South Africa. Mama Nadine Gordimer, a fiery woman, award-winning writer and political activist- we thank you!

I cannot imagine the type of courage one needed to possess, to be able to represent and stand for the oppressed majority in a historic time when the oppressors were one of your own. The above video demonstrates the fierce nature of Mama Nadine Gordimer.

For living a symbolic life, we thank you!
MM

“My answer is: Recognize yourself in others”
― Nadine Gordimer
