The Preamble

The preamble of our Constitution, the supreme law of the state speaks to me as an individual.

Daily assigning challenges to me, by render forth these words “honour those who [have] suffered for justice and freedom in our [beloved] land” and causing a return to a familiar path of ubuntu when it says “respect those who have worked to build and develop our country”.

It continues to speak to me as it touches upon a principle. A principle I subscribe to dearly as it is rendered as forth; “believe that South Africa belongs to all who live in it, united in our diversity”.

These words of the supreme law descents upon my nakedness and dresses me with purpose.

Surely an everyday South African who recognises this, is at a position to be at the forefront of the process of productive transformation.

And that everyday South African begins with me.
