Hi all FB & Blog friends…
Last week this was read out on radio and which I found a massive
inspiration… Hope it inspires you the same!
Prof Jonathan Jansen’s Letter, Dated: 31 march 2017 on the
occasion of Agmat Kathardra’s funeral.
Show me another country where the Anglican Archbishop prays at a
where a white man chairs the proceedings to remember a leader from
a black liberation movement;
where the sitting president of a developing country is told to step
down in a letter from the deceased stalwart of his own party;
where the widow of the black man being buried is a white woman who
gave her life to the struggle for freedom;
and where Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu and other faiths come
together in a broad swathe of South African humanity to remember a
man who fought for all of us.
Where on and off the stage no one racial or ethnic or religious
group dominated the event.
For a moment, just a moment, it felt good to hope again.
