Nowhere is safe
Being mugged fucking sucks.
Sorry, there’s no way to put it nicely.
Someone aggressively taking something that belongs to you is jarring. It’s sad that it had to happen to us after one of the best days of our lives at the Global Citizen Festival on Sunday.
The moment keeps looping in my mind, replaying over and over while I ask myself why it had to happen. I don’t feel safe anywhere.
Nowhere in South Africa is safe though, and no one in South Africa is safe either. Until all of us are free, none of us are free. Oprah reminded us of that and so did that man that snatched my phone.
If you can bear the heat in this kitchen then let’s get cooking. Nothing is going to change unless all of us make a change. Politicians are clearly not going to do it for us. The media is obviously not going to encourage us.
“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
