WHEN I was a kid, my dad used to travel a lot and whenever he came home he’d always bring my sister and me a present. There were many lovely ones – toys we treasured for years, sweet treats, beautiful scarves that made us feel so sophisticated. Many have been lost now but there’s one I still have: a hardcover book called The Best of Life, a compilation of pictures featured in that iconic magazine from back in the day. I often page through it, looking at photos that tell the story of major news events. That book made me love picture collections of momentous moments, so planning our annual year-in-pictures feature is one of my highlights here at YOU. This year, however, we decided to take it a step further. The end…

HOSPICE, I SALUTE YOU! WE MUST all die. It’s everyone’s destiny. Some die surrounded by loving family and friends. Others die alone without a soul to hold their hand as they depart this world. Hospices are wonderful organisations that step up and offer a dignified helping hand to people who are frail and ill and unable to help themselves as they prepare themselves for the inevitable. The Beatles wrote a song with the lyrics, “All the lonely people, where do they all belong . . . where do they all come from.” Thankfully hospices exist, offering care and support. They deserve accolades! PETER BACHTIS, BENONI PROUD OF OUR PRINCESS Thanks for the lovely spread on Princess Charlene (YOU, 26 December). She came across as refreshingly real in Nici de Wet’s interview with her in Monaco. Best of all is…

her struggle is real

Reading about the struggles of the little girl who was kidnapped in Vanderbijlpark, Gauteng, recently tears at my core (YOU, 5 December). I’ve been living with PTSD after surviving an attack at home three years ago. All her symptoms strike a chord because I’ve lived them too. The trauma she survived is real: the anger, inability to express her feelings and “acting out” are all part of the process. I’d like to encourage her parents – even though they might feel helpless, there are things they can do to help her when she’s triggered into a flashback or a PTSD attack. In those moments, try to get her to focus on taking deep breaths, to hold onto something solid such as a table or countertop. This is to help her find some sort…

a queen in waiting

ONCE upon a time, there was a young woman so terrified of public speaking her aides had to put a plan in place in case her nerves failed her. Don’t announce the duchess will be speaking, was their golden rule. That way, if she froze, no one would be disappointed. And if she managed to summon the courage to deliver her speech – well, everyone would be delighted. Yet, to say that Kate was hardly a compelling speaker would be an understatement. She barely looked up from her notes, her voice was high-pitched and strained, and her body language gave the impression she’d find pushing sharp sticks in her eyes more enjoyable. But just look at her now. If ever a person has grown in confidence, it’s the 37-year-old Duchess of Cambridge. These days,…
