Happy Heritage Day, South-Africa

South-Africans

Happy Heritage Day

You might have cleverly deduced that today we celebrate our diversity and heritage here.

We have this great nation, with so many different cultures.

every day we strive to be more integrated, and understand each other better.

It isn’t easy, because we have a very recent past of racial segregation.

I am Afrikaans, which means my forefathers were mostly the guilty party of Apartheid.

Even though my forefathers were poor and worked in fields, and were considered not that high up on the social ladder, today I still carry a mark of being white, and Afrikaans, in South-Africa.

I am proud to speak my language, and proud to be Afrikaans.

And I am proud to be South-African.
