Sometimes South Africans just need a little reminder of what a beautiful and harmonious country we live in. A proud social media user was feeling the love after spending a gorgeous day at the beach watching two diverse groups of people joining forces to enjoy a tranquil day at the beach.
Mandi Duthie was relaxing on a Durban beach watching a group of people playing soccer while another group played rugby nearby. Soon enough, the two separate groups decided to come together and started playing some combined version of the two games, clearly having the time of their lives, Briefly.co.za found.
Mandi says they were joyfully tackling each other and laughing, showing heartwartming comradery and smiles. She says the day reminded her that everyone has one shared goal and that is to be happy and protect what we love.
“I know you know this feeling of warmth too. That warm, fuzzy, South African feeling. With small acts like this going on, how can it all be bad and tainted,” she writes.
South Africans on social media knew the feeling very well and quickly expressed their appreciation for her post, sharing stories about the good times and great people they’ve met.
A Facebook user, Anneline Govender wrote:
"My heart rejoices when I see things like this, it's an assurance that there is hope, the ones causing division and hatred are running this country, they will not succeed in destroying what so many fought for, unity shall prevail and the eyes of those who are being led astray shall be open to see the truth.
