Freedom Day

17 Years ago today black people in South Africa were allowed to vote for the first time, Nelson Mandela became President following those elections, we became known as the Rainbow Nation. Arguably the biggest event in the history of this country. I was only 10 years old at the time, wasn't too interested in all the politics, and took "freedom" for granted. We'd had black pupils in our school since 1992 (that I can remember), so by 1994 it wasn't a big deal to us kids anyway. Little did we know how much differently things in this country could have turned out was it not for De Klerk and Mandela. Now we just hope things continue in this fashion if Mandela had to pass away one day...

I got some bad news regarding Bree on facebook yesterday: ***UPDATE*** Everyone please keep Bree and her family in your prayers and thoughts! She has taken a turn of the worse a couple weeks ago. She is in TGH fighting hard. They are trying a plasma exchange right now to see if that will help. They don't know what else to do at this point or even what she has. Let's just hope and pray this works!!!! Really bummed, she BETTER recover from whatever's wrong with her :-(

Only 2 more days of work this week! Having blood and urine tests done tomorrow morning before work for my appointment on Tuesday. Also need to get my flu shot somewhere in the next week or so. Hope you've had a good week so far!
