Do You Have Issues: "South Africa Crime"
"The murder and crime in our country is tearing us apart. All I know is that we can together make a change it was with friends like you that we changed our country and the hearts of all in it. And now we are depending on you to please help us in this time of being ruled by gangsters posing as freedom fighters, gangsters posing as politicians and gangsters posing as people who speak for the Lord. Be Strong pray for us and all those that who have lost so many so many. Why must we suffer like this. Why have you forgotten all of us in South Africa? You were there when we needed you during the darkest days of Apartheid. Please Oh God all we have are you. Defenders of the Free. Defenders of the Faith!

Rest in peace my dear Mr Feng and join the army of innocents Our Lord is about to assemble. We cannot escape our fate!

I have been robbed, assaulted and my friends gang raped. Lost my auntie in a brutal murder and am still waiting for an answer. Yet the world dines in decadence. God how our continent has been raped by the Western decadence!

Thank you that I can at least know I have you. And while noone may care in government over there, I know you will be thinking of us on your winged prayer!"


God Bless
Love

Thank you Hanlie for sharing your grief. Many may not be aware that beautiful South Africa is rated first in the world for crimes including murder, assaults and rapes per capita by the United Nations.

To put things in another prospective, in America at least 5.5 out of 100,000 persons will be a victim of Homicide this year. In South Africa 49.6.

My own home of Savannah, GA has seen a spike in violent crime rates and homicides have increased 50% since 2004. Currently there has been much controversy on what to do about it. Seems every time the authorities implement a crime preventive measure, someone stands up and cries foul.

Miss Hanlie, I so very wish I could have an answer for your issues with crime. For now my prayers go with you. Take care of yourself and loved ones. Arm yourself however possible and take advantage of self defense courses and training in your area.

Use the Buddy System when out after dark or in an unknown area. Ask a store manager, or nice strapping young fellow to walk you out to your car or taxi. Band together with like-minded individuals, establish a neighborhood watch and light up your home and surrounding community.

Thugs don't like close knit and highly lit areas where they can be seen. Neither do they want to be heard. If pets are allowed where you reside - consider adopting a doggie. No matter what size, most family dogs will bark whenever they sense someone strange in the area. Many times their senses are more keen and in tune than their humans can ever be.

Best wishes and again, many prayers. -Margie

    Yes, Dr. John - we can pray. I sure wish we could set a better example.

    Yes Deepak, India is having a difficult time with violence and crime lately also.

    Our world needs peace, comfort and security so badly. =O(

    South African's are always welcome here in Australia, especially Perth and Sydney (two capital cities on opposite sides of the country). Just don't bring your problems with you; just recently I was passing a fortified school that I'm told is attended by mostly by South African children. WTF is that?! You don't need such severe amounts of security here. Though it says alot about the country that they're fleeing.

    I do hope for peace in Africa. I will pray for you.
