I RECENTLY attended the 21st birthday of the daughter of one of my cousins. I looked around the room at everyone who was there to celebrate with her and thought again how special an occasion it is. Her father was practically bursting with pride as he pointed out all the things he loved about his firstborn child and why he thought she’s so special. He told us of his dreams for her and as he spoke I thought of what’s still ahead for her. There’s so much hope, so much promise, so much to experience still. Her generation is so different to mine and I wondered how she’ll experience the things that await her. Whether it’s work or studying or finding love – it will be nothing like the days without social media…

dispensing warmth and love

WHAT I saw on Mandela Day at OR Tambo Hall in Khayelitsha, Cape Town, was amazing and inspiring. It was raining and freezing cold and people were queueing for soup and coffee. I was surprised to see how many people were there to care for the underprivileged. It was beautiful and I hope other provinces are doing the same thing – I don’t mean a feeding scheme necessarily, I mean anything to help those who come from disadvantaged backgrounds. To all those who left their warm homes and families just to serve the community, we really appreciate what you did. I want to single out the elderly helpers because they’re the ones who brought us into the world and protected us as children. You’ve proved to us that Khayelitsha isn’t just a high-crime area…

MEAN TEENS There’s little doubt teenagers can be extremely cruel and oblivious to how hurtful their comments can be. And I speak from bitter experience, having been mercilessly bullied as a child and teenager for being extremely shy and withdrawn. My heart bleeds for Duan Stroebel, whose rare chronic cystic acne caused him untold pain and humiliation (YOU, 18 July). One can’t imagine how this already self-conscious teen felt when some of his peers exited a swimming pool when he wanted to get in. And a high five to the close friends who stood by him – at least he knows who his true friends are. I’m so pleased there’s light at the end of the tunnel for this 15-year-old who’s suffered enough.

recycling conundrums

I totally agree with Puzzled (YOU Say, 25 July) regarding your article on recycling (YOU, 11 July). We’re constantly urged to recycle our plastic to avoid it landing up in the oceans and decimating marine life. But now the article reveals that despite the triangular recycling logo on plastics we shouldn’t take that to mean the item is in fact recyclable! To further muddy the waters we’re told not to mix soft plastics with hard plastics as the soft plastics are flimsy and clog up sorting equipment. So are we now to believe we must take only the hard plastic to the recycling drop-off point and throw the rest away with the normal trash? It’s all very confusing. I also agree with Puzzled that it’s impossible to remove labels. ROZ SIMPSON, EMAIL This is a…

in brief

What a pity you can’t read tea leaves anymore because they’ve been reduced to dust. Two teaspoons to a bag and no sign of taste. ANNE, NORTHPINE When the Mount Nelson Hotel in Cape Town is robbed by a band of armed men it begs the question: will tourists feel safe coming here? I don’t feel safe at all. WENDY, MIDRAND I was interested to read the two letters about bad drivers (YOU Say, 25 July). Here in Cape Town the norm is never to use indicators, never to stop at stop streets and to tailgate the driver ahead of you. And why? You never see these bad drivers being caught, so lawlessness on the roads prevails. MOXIE, EMAIL I went to my local bookstore to buy my crossword dictionary and because I spent so much…
