Vote - I admit this is a topic which gets me on my soapbox. My opinion is quite straight forward - if you fail to vote because of YOUR own voter apathy then you forfeit the right to complain for the next 5 years! As we head for the 6th democratic elections in South Africa your vote is more important than ever. Exercise the right which has been given to you by people who sacrificed their lives for it. Vote for a better South Africa for ALL, not just your corner. Vote because your mark on the paper does make a difference.
You reach a point of accepting that you made mistakes,
they cost you dearly and that you can't change the past.
At that point you stop raging against your history,
and move forward
into a calmer, less self destructive frame of mind.
