Devoted Citizens by Rev SC Mathebula
In an era where the values of patriotism, commitment to flag and country are waning, there is a clarion call for responsible citizenship. It is easy to allow our beautiful nation to spiral into the doldrums of neglect, stagnation, depression, decay and chaos. Only a devoted citizen can make their country great, simply, one act at a time and one person at a time. For a long time we have looked at our country with dismay and despair, and looked away and hoped that somebody, somewhere, somehow would fix our country. Yet the responsibility to build our nation is a collective endeavour and a personal choice. We need to rise above our socio-political differences, and understand that South Africa belongs to all who live in it.
