South Africa, the Rainbow Nation: Part 4

Logically, after the abolishment of apartheid in 1994, all the blacks and coloreds of South Africa could have been expected to unite against the whites. And the situation was so very close to that, but due to the immense influence of the person who being alive is considered almost a saint, the first president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, managed to direct the negative energy of his fellow countrymen into the only right direction. It was he who demonstrated the world and his people that non-resistance to violence was a way of solving problems. It was he who first called his people ‘the Rainbow Nation’.

In spite of still existing townships around towns and cities where thousands of poor black families live, and in spite of a long list of problems the nation has to solve, South Africa has a huge potential of sooner or later ending up as a country where the future will be cloudless and harmonized gospels will be soring above its fields and mountains, rivers and valleys.

To me, South Africa is a very special place, and if I could, I would return here again and again, and maybe I would even buy a small tiny house near one of the oceans when I retire. As for the people around me, I absolutely don’t mind being a neighbor to any kind of chocolate skin because nice people are nice regardless of their race.

About Author

Professionally speaking, by now I have... over 15 years of teaching English - to kids and adults, one-to-one and in groups, over 60 textbooks and supplementary materials for teaching and learning English - written and published, over 400 hours of teacher training sessions in 7 countries, over 100 blog posts for parents who help their children learn a foreign language. My lifestyle (in the past 6 years I've lived in 4 countries for at least one year) has led me into developing a new dimension for my teaching career: a trainer for parents [and teachers] who help kids learn a foreign language between classes. Visit my blog http://www.papalingua.com/ and see how easy and exciting it is to be a language partner to your kid, and a teaching partner to your kid's teacher.
