Freedom Day

27 April marks the day we cast our first democratic vote for a new government.

I am proud that I was old enough to be part of that.

Its a significant day. I only hope that we will not go into to the opposite direction and forget about the minorities in our country. We over threw political oppression of the majority people in our country - but the fight on a social, economic and even a spiritual level is not over. We can all vote but that is not the only thing we need to be free.

I pray that we do not lose sight of the ideals that we fought for and that we continue to question ourselves and our government and we continue to work towards creating a better country.
