With everything going on in South Africa; the looming drought, the racism, institutionalised inequality and the by-products of that (angry youth), it isn’t easy to stay positive and keep pushing for a better future. Some days, giving up does seem like the only option and for many people, it has been the only option.

Giving up doesn’t mean just laying in bed and eating chocolate. Giving up means using public money to build private palaces. It means justifying theft, rape, subjugation and simply ignoring the needs of fellow humans.

Perseverance becomes the greatest asset in times like this. It becomes a form of courage, a new kind of non-conformity that transcends fashion or religion. Perseverance means being Alive & Brilliant – http://wp.me/p7hUnP-D
