Violence aginst women outcry
Just recently in my country, South Africa, we were awakened to a shocking truth that Oscar Pistorius had murdered his girlfriend. What is more devastating is that this kind of violence seems to be on the rise. There has been numberous caes of youth raoing and sometimes also killing aged women, some up to the ages of 90 and beyond. Gang rapes and child rape cases have escalated. Justice through the courts is a good thing but only when 'justice has trully prevailed'. The increase of drugs in my country i think is partly to blame for these abuses. I also belive that our government is not doing enough to fight this. You know sometimes I just feel so powerless when I read about these acts or see them on tv. Sometimes I feel so overwhelmed and frustrated not being able to help these victims. I belive I can achieve great things and be that voice of change. Its a sad fact that money gives mobility and it has hindered a lot of work we could have already done, had we had had it.
