It’s raining now, but the sun will shine again

Dear Editor,
As I watched the rain pouring outside my window, I said to myself “this is a ‘ nice’ rain”. What did I mean? It was pouring, yes, but at the same time, the sun was shining through. I anticipated that the rain would soon cease. And it did!

Whenever I go online and see one race spouting hateful words at the other, I say to myself…what trash!! Utter nonsense! Don’t these people realise that while they tear each other apart those for whom they think they are fighting are securely cloistered? Well protected? When we destroy public property, who will suffer? Those in high office whose bread is already well-buttered?

No. It’s ordinary people’s children! So let’s get a grip of ourselves! We display some measure of togetherness before elections, and regardless of the outcome of these elections, we can and must continue to live harmoniously!!
Negative reactions are often fuelled by fear. We all fall prey to this emotion at some time or other, but it need not engulf us for it robs us of peace and fills us with distrust. Let’s join with the Psalmist and say: “Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You… In God I have put my trust; I will not fear. What can flesh do to me?” Psalm 56:3-4.
It’s raining now but the sun will shine again!
