A Nation without empathy? A frightening thought
(Author: Norah Ngobeni)
Throughout Oscar Pistorius’ verdict and sentencing, I was saddened and alarmed at how vindictive and opinionated we can be as a society. Most of us had something to say on the subject either through the social media, print, radio and television as well as to friends, family and colleagues, anyone who could listen including strangers. In between our anger and opinions as well as playing judge, we sometimes failed to reflect on other issues pertinent to the case.
