Very random thinking

Today, I read the following headline & blurb:

A new beginning in Zimbabwe?
Schools and hospitals returning to life. Food in the supermarkets and queues at the tills. Investors flying in and refugees coming home.

Then I read a story in a Melburnian student newspapers about some horrific attacks that have happened to foreign internation students in this city.

Several recently-met South Africans would do well to remember that you can always find a story to justify your perspective & judgement on places.

It is the "responsible reader" who searches out those views that oppose their own.

You are quite right on that one. The tragedy is,people go out of their way to reinforce and affirm their prejudices.
How sad!
