NOBODY can possibly imagine what it’s like to be Miché Solomon. Because few people in the world share the extraordinary experience this young woman has been through – and certainly nobody in South Africa. Miché is, of course, the young woman known to the world as Zephany Nurse. Her story has been documented countless times, including in YOU, but now for the first time she’s speaking as herself, revealing her identity, ready to face the world with the name she’s chosen to live with. For years she’s grappled with thoughts and feelings none of us can imagine in that context. Disappointment, anger, hope, love . . . all of this while becoming a mom to two children. Yet she’s held steady since she discovered the truth about her past, despite her seeming vulnerability.…

online friendships are real

WE’RE living in a digital world and there’s a belief that the younger generation has lost the true meaning of human bonds. We’re accused of being superficial, fake and cold. Our friendships on social media are considered unreal. But there are still wonderful, amazing people in this virtual world. Do we really need to be sitting next to one another to be real friends? Is it about distance or connection? Why is online friendship judged so much? Didn’t people back in the day write letters and stay best friends with just a few words sent on paper? Friendship is beautiful even when it’s hard to maintain. It takes pure heart and pure love to keep the bond strong. It takes a great deal of understanding, trust and loyalty. Sometimes you might be sitting with…

AN INCREDIBLE JOURNEY Congratulations, Kennedy Gihana, for taking your life into your own hands, not blaming your past and trekking 6 000km from Rwanda through Tanzania, Kenya, Malawi and Zimbabwe to South Africa (YOU, 15 August).

Bless everyone who helped you along that journey with food, money and a place to sleep until you attained your master’s in international law. God’s richest blessings to you, your family and your law firm. JOY WILKINS, EMAIL What an inspiring story about Kennedy Gihana. Words can’t express how I feel about this courageous man who never gave up. G WILLIAMS, PIETERMARITZBURG IRRESISTIBLE YOU There’s something about YOU that draws me like a magnet. In…

in brief

Wow! Hat’s off to Jennifer Aniston (YOU, 15 August). Ms Jolie is no match for her. Jen is beautiful and radiant with her looks, figure and vibrant skin and hair. I love her to bits. Brad Pitt’s loss! CHERYL, POLOKWANE I love Bok coach Rassie Erasmus. He’s the best! RUGBY FAN, SMS JM du Plooy, I’d like to compliment you on your letter (YOU Say, 15 August). You’ve said what I want to say to so many people. It’s so true that every good, kind, respectful word is kicked to the kerb. What’s the world coming too? I even get strange looks from my grandchildren when I remind them to be courteous. PT RAYNERS, SMS No, no, Marie Dixon, I don’t ever have a lie-in (YOU Say, 15 August). I get up just after 4am. Who’ll…

trees, glorious trees

Arbor Week is coming up in September and it’s heartening to read that many organisations and schools hold tree-planting ceremonies at this time every year in South Africa. Our wealth is generally measured in terms of precious minerals but trees also play a vital role in our world. Unspoilt wooded landscapes offer unlimited interest and pleasure to many, not just nature-lovers, but city dwellers, teachers and scientists too. From a practical point of view timber is widely used in the form of doors, floors, furniture, mine props, boxes, materials and pencils. Rayon pulp and wattle extract for tanning are among SA’s leading timber exports. These generate welcome foreign exchange. Trees produce life-giving oxygen, provide food and protection to creatures of the ecosystem while greatly beautifying our environment. The planting of trees has a…
