lessons for national healing

Twenty years ago apartheid was officially abolished, but it takes a long time to get rid of the vestiges of that system. It takes time as well to have a new system. Paper is patient. But how does everyday look like in a new constellation?

This month two years ago in one day 24 striking miners were killed by policemen in South Africa. Others died in the following days.

What effect does this have on society? And the others issues that brought pain and wounds?
