Eyona Nto Siyifunayo Luthando - All We Need Is Love

You might have found out already that this is not Mdantsane but one of our breath-taking beaches surrounding Buffalo City.

The opening words of the Freedom Charter became widely known in South Africa’s political discourse: 

“We, the People of South Africa, declare for all our country and the world to know: that South Africa belongs to all who live in it, black and white, and that no government can justly claim authority unless it is based on the will of all the people.” 

The Charter was adopted by 3000 delegates at the Congress of the People in Kliptown near Johannesburg on June 26, 1955. It was the result of a year long political discussion throughout the country. 

The Freedom Charta formulated not only basic demands for human and political rights but it also described the kind of society that was envisioned to replace the old apartheid system, including ideals such as sharing the wealth of the country and adequate housing, education, and healthcare for all. 
Only in 1994 South-Africa became a free country. 

What it really meant is shown in these wonderful pictures. 56 years later in today's South Africa anyone can go to any place at any time with whomever he or she desires.  

You might wish to be in their place right now but there are moments when it is your time and there are moments when you should just watch and admire.

Dear readers, you have been so extremely supportive of our magazine and our Facebook page that we just wish to thank you and let you go into your weekend with some beautiful, warm, soft and gentle pictures.
