I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word. – Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dear God
This is for you information.
If/when you have time please look at these pictures. IMG_2340
And see.
My land is torn.
My people are bleeding.
Yes I know. The sun is still shining brilliantly in a perfect blue sky.
And for that I am grateful.
But please look a little bit closer.
And feel the thousands of words.
In the millions of stories these pictures tell.
(I asked Hanno to hold my hand because he said he was also scared.)
Dear God.
This is not a prayer.
This is a request.
Please don’t let us fall.
Rather bless us all.
From A to Z.
Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika.
Asseblief.
Thank you.
