This video reminds me why I choose to live in South Africa. It reminds me that this country and her people are good, and kind and beautiful and there is simply no other place like it.
When I say, “I love my country,” it’s not empty words. I love this country with almost tangible emotion. This is universally true of all South Africans (even those who have left). We love South Africa to the very core of our beings. She is a part of us. She’s in our blood, in our DNA. We are South Africa and South Africa is us.
This is my country, this is my home.
