If We Can See


Just 12km from the Pietermaritzburg City Hall, many of the children from Umsilinga Primary School had not seen it. It was a very special moment when hundreds of little people in red socks stormed the fields to form a tunnel on Saturday to welcome the Unogwaja team who had cycled 1700km from Cape Town over the previous 10 days. A young girl passionately recited Rudyard Kipling's 'If'. One day, she wants to be a Doctor. As I ran the 89km Comrades yesterday as part of the Red Love Train alongside the 12 team members, I kept thinking about those kids. If we truly believe in a world without unnecessary obstacles. If we can see and support the resilience and perseverance that already exists, the light of these children will shine.
