MY HEART feels so heavy as I write this. It’s hard not to feel sad, enraged, afraid and helpless in the face of the stories of violence against women that have emerged in recent weeks. I can’t add much more to the outraged voices we’ve already heard. So many who are smarter and wiser than me have spoken about what’s going wrong and what we can do to be better at not hurting the most vulnerable people in our society. What I can do is give my full backing to the campaign that we launch this week called #strongertogether. We know it won’t change the world in one day but we’re hoping that by showcasing the people working hard to effect positive change, we can help them to do great work. In the…

my fond memories of johnny

THE passing of Johnny Clegg, although expected, held a particular poignancy for me. As a teenager I was allowed to hang around a lot of music events because my brother-in-law used to perform at many of the same concerts Johnny played at. As an innocent groupie, much younger than the rest of the crowd who used to attend these gigs, I was tolerated but mostly ignored. But I remember one evening with perfect clarity. I was propping up some doorframe during an interlude, feeling spare as usual, when Johnny walked straight up to me, shook my hand and said, “Hello Karen, how are you?” I was amazed! None of the other musos had ever so much as recognised my existence, so consumed were they by their own egos. But Johnny was different. Having been introduced to…

THE STRUGGLE TO CONCEIVE My husband and I had always planned to have our children close together but Mother Nature had other plans. After the birth of our daughter, I battled to fall pregnant again. Finally, after two years my gynae put me on a course of medication, neglecting to mention it could result in multiple births. To our great delight I eventually fell pregnant and gave birth to our son, completing the family with our pigeon pair. While my brief spell of infertility in no way compares to that of the celebs mentioned in your article (YOU, 22 August), it nevertheless was fairly distressing for us at the time. My daughter was a model baby, toddler and teen, while her brother was a lively boy. One day I explained to her that when…

child safety first!

Reading the article from Concerned (YOU Say, 15 August) reminds me of a similar incident. I’ve also been verbally abused when telling people to please not let their children stand on seats or sit in the front of the car. The last time it happened I said to the driver, “I hope you’ll never experience the heartache of your child going through the windscreen or worse.” For this I was told I’d be punched into next week if I didn’t shut my mouth and I was ordered to stop interfering. Who do these people think they are? The child is the one who suffers ultimately. Grown-ups should be heavily fined if caught being negligent with their kids in cars. P BALDWIN, EMAIL The letter-writer Concerned is so right. If you love your children, put them…
