The uprising of the youth in South Africa 43 years ago, came in response to the Bantu Education Act and the government edict in 1974, that Afrikaans be used as medium of instruction for certain subjects in black schools. This iconic picture of Hector Pieterson, a schoolchild shot by the police, brought home to many people within and outside of South Africa the effect of the struggle during the Apartheid government's reign. It is celebrated as a public holiday across South Africa to remember the brave students who protest against Afrikaans as a medium of language.

3. Affair, polygamy, lies, cheating, these words have become so common within my family. I utterly admire my mother for being a constant pillar of strength in mine and my siblings lives. She has kept our family together, while my father was busy having secret rendezvous with who knows who? I will never forget the day my father told us he has a second wife. He looked at us in a way that would send chills down your spine. We knew what he would say next would be heartbreaking. His words still echo in my head," Fatima and kids, I have remarried. I have been married to Ayesha for 6 months now. I cannot hide this any longer. Kids, you have another mother. " My world came crashing down! My own father, who swore to protect my heart and would never allow a tear to leave my eye had lied. What about MY mother? She is his wife. My father did not consider how it would affect our family. Islamicly I know men are allowed more than one wife, specifically four, however given that he treats all parties equally. Let's face it, in today's day and age there is no way someone can be completely equal , we are too caught up in this materialistic world. The Quraan states "And you will never be able to be equal [in feeling] between wives, even if you should strive [to do so]. So do not incline completely [toward one] and leave another hanging. And if you amend [your affairs] and fear Allah - then indeed, Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful. " Surat al-Nisa [4:129] Tears begin flowing down my eyes as I ponder about that terrible day. It feels like it all happened just yesterday but 13 years have gone by and Alhamdu'lilah my parents are still together. Having my heartbroken by my father and now Hamzah makes me ask myself, will I ever trust another man again? #BlogPost3 #Blogger #SouthAfrica #Woman #Empowerment

I wish I'd taken video footage rather than photos for these two male impalas. The dust was flying, as they locked horns again and again, completely ignoring our car. And their ferocious roaring fooled me into thinking their was a lion around the corner! May (South Africa's autumn) is the start of the impala rutting season. #amazinganimals #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifeplanet #wildlifeaddicts #capturethewild #wildlife_vision #wildlifeonearth   #wildlifeshots #wildlife_photography #impala #southafrica #krugernationalpark #natgeowild #natgeoyourshot #kruger #safari #africanwildlife #africa #africanimals #krugermagazine #knp #wildeyesa #krugerexplorer #krugersightings #sanparks #naturephotography #nature #naturelovers
