Marya Moutzouris, FB inbox - Dear Klerksdorp Record, thank you for the awesome job you are doing keeping us informed.

Please check out the following page on Facebook: #ImStaying. Although just a month old, it has been growing very quickly. It is the most uplifting page I’ve ever come across, sharing positive stories of ordinary South Africans.

In just a few days, it has made such a difference to my own attitude. It is a page that deserves to be spread far and wide all over South Africa. It deserves to become a movement.

We are all just people who want to get on with our lives. We do not want to live in hate, we are above that, because we are all children of God. And we don’t want to live in fear. We want to live, love, laugh, cry, help, try, build, do all the things which give life meaning. But it suits the politicians to keep us divided, and to breed mistrust and hate.

It’s time we stopped believing them, and it’s time we show them what it is we want and how we want to live.
