crime hurts in ways that we can no longer measure. all those stats that insist on the 'greatest crime capital' badges that make some people smile in pleasure at the accolade, are worth nothing compared to that extended realm of devastation. on thursday, a friend of mine left a sweet birthday message for me at facebook. sometime yesterday, mom told me that she had been kidnapped from her city of residence in Durban on the east coast, bundled into the back of a delivery vehicle and transported to Gauteng overnight, where they finally located her early yesterday. (-this all happened on thursday night-)
i need to remember to breathe at this point... it upsets me so much!
of course, i am glad that she has been found, and that she is ok. adding to the unfortunate incident is the fact that she is pregnant. but still, she is ok. physically ok. but i cannot begin to imagine the trauma. this whole thing should never have happened!!!
