We have at times, during this last week, sat glued to our TVs, radios, social media, news apps, wherever... We have seen horrific scenes of looting, trashing of goods, broken windows, ATMs smashed and ripped out (with piles of money stolen), crowds upon crowds gathering to help themselves to tires, fridges, Plasma TV screens, medicines, food… Then the looters went and ripped open storage units where personal goods were looted, and after all the looting, the buildings were set on fire. 😔

What we also saw within hours of the looting, volunteers started cleaning the main street in Durban CBD. People started protecting each other and human shields started forming around shopping malls that had not been looted, to keep the looters out. Community Police and Patrolling Forums and Private Security Companies started working with the police, as the police were totally overwhelmed. People of all ethnic groups working together at night, protecting their communities.

People calling in from other provinces, other countries, pledging assistance to help - some of the looted areas don't even have a shop to buy from, and there’s no milk, bread, baby food or nappies.

We've been told it's not over, but people are not waiting, they are starting to rebuild in their ruins. We cannot wait for the politicians, we need to start rebuilding if we want to make something of our lives.

Use this setback as a stepping stone, to move on and rebuild, NOT an excuse to sit back or even allowing yourself to get bitter in any way.

I am so convinced this maxim to be true. "𝙻𝚒𝚏𝚎 𝚒𝚜 𝚝𝚎𝚗 𝚙𝚎𝚛𝚌𝚎𝚗𝚝 𝚠𝚑𝚊𝚝 𝚑𝚊𝚙𝚙𝚎𝚗𝚜 𝚝𝚘 𝚢𝚘𝚞 𝚊𝚗𝚍 𝚗𝚒𝚗𝚎𝚝𝚢 𝚙𝚎𝚛𝚌𝚎𝚗𝚝 𝚑𝚘𝚠 𝚢𝚘𝚞 𝚛𝚎𝚜𝚙𝚘𝚗𝚍 𝚝𝚘 𝚒𝚝". 𝙻𝚘𝚞 𝙷𝚘𝚕𝚝𝚣

Let's keep Rebuilding South Africa, TOGETHER. We have much to do, no time to waste.

Love,
Monica ❤🇿🇦
