I recently read about the high crime rate in South Africa, something about 50 murders a day and 1 rape every minute! There were many theories for the reason behind such a condition, as the world seems to be perplexed in explaining to its own mind why this could be happening, what with the peace many experience in their own suburbs, away from those crimes, away from such dreaded darkness of the soul.
Yet can we really separate ourselves from everything that’s been happening? Can we always put the blame somewhere else saying unto ourselves we have nothing to do with it all?
There is a message our deafened ears need to be hearing, a message saying that when something as dark as this is happening, we should take a look and consider if we might be missing out on something. Is there something we should have been doing that we have failed to do?
