Why, the one time that my tar-pit of anger could’ve been an asset, was I stuck in self-quarantine? I could’ve been out there being a barrier, instead I have had to read about the plundering. Maybe me being stuck at home was so I didn’t end up in jail.

That said, did you read about the SPCA in Germiston/Bedfordview? I donated to that. Maybe also check in on the Durban/Coastal SPCAs if you have the means to donate.

Did you join the RebuildSA volunteer group? I did and added my name to the list of volunteers. When what I can do is needed, I will be there.

Instead of completely dividing South Africans, these dark days may have pushed us together even more because I have seen the unlikeliest of heroes… Never in my life will I swear at a taxi driver for cutting in front of me again (and I will keep my finger in check too).
