Of all the forms of courage the ability to laugh is the most important one…

The ability for one to laugh brings light and joy to one’s life. When I used to be a child, I would play the most dangerous games like flying the kite on the roof of the house, swim at the river nearby and push car tires on the dusty streets of Soweto.

When I fall down I used to cry, and one day I fell, and there was a moment of silent among my friends and brother. I felt the giggles coming from my tummy and I burst into laughter. That moment, right the on the concrete tar, under the boiling sun, I learnt that of all the forms of courage, the ability to laugh is the most important, especially when you are laughing at yourself.
