A social media post recently posed some thought-provoking questions as it delivered an inspirational message.
Doc Mabila took to Facebook and shared a wonderful story via the #ImStaying group.
Mabila touched on South Africa's turbulent past and how it affects the current status quo.
However, he also posed a critical question - what are we doing now to make the country a better place for future generations?
The post detailed an inspirational initiative that took place at the Kameeldrift informal settlement recently.
People from diverse racial, social and economic backgrounds all came together and connected on the outskirts of the township.
Young and old, black and white, they all spent the day getting to know each other better while playing football, enjoying a braai and engaging in banter.
The photos shared told a wonderful story and served as another reminder as to what is possible when we put our differences aside.
Briefly.co.za gauged the response and it soon became clear that many supported the innovative fun day as well as the powerful message.
Zoey Zee McShane said,
"This is so beautiful."
Kg Mt felt extra patriotic:
"Eish I am so lucky to be a SOUTH AFRICAN."
Janine Ashne Lewis felt a sense of FOMO:
"Awesome. Wish I was there."
