Lead SA

I am spending lots of time in traffic listening to the radio, yesterday evening on the way home the on radio DJ said that he has started greeting beggars on the way home. In the past he didn't even look at them. 

It is strange how things happen but LEADSA an initiative recently launched by the SA press has the same principles of the Star Fish Story entry last month.

Their call to action states;

"We have lost respect for each other, for the elderly, for the young, for women. We have lost
respect for the poor and for the sick. We have lost respect for our country’s laws, and for those
who wrote them. We have lost respect for the downtrodden, for refugees, for those who we don’t
necessarily agree with. We have lost respect for the moral, while giving in to the material.

We have lost respect for our own future.

Now is the time for you to stand up. If you care about yourself, your family, your neighbours, your
friends, your colleagues - about South Africa, you must stand up.

Stand up for what’s right.
Stand up for the law.
Stand up for decency, compassion, and respect.
Stand up for the future you want for your family.
Stand up for your community.
Stand up, and lead South Africa.

Not soon. Not just now. Now. Because if you don’t, who will?"

We all have the power to make a difference, so never think your contribution is to small, it makes a difference to that one person.

For the full call to action
