Thank you, Simon. Alerts regarding the plight of our brothers/sisters
in other areas can be upsetting, but awareness of negative situations
brings understanding, and hopefully.... resolution.
May xenophobia and racism be eradicated from our world.

Well, it sounds like some great ideas are coming from these troubled days throughout South Africa. A lot of inspiration jumping forth... that's good! I hope the best for everyone to get along in the future.

Xenophobia n.: fear and hatred of strangers or foreigners or of anything that is strange or foreign. New word for me.

It is good to see a positive story like this, there are so many awful things, and this gives honor and meaning to the words Mitake Oyasin.
