PRAYER FOR HELP
I was touched by the article “I just want to be normal” (21 September). Nduduzo Gumede’s plea to God is to be normal. It might sound simple but it comes from the bottom of his sad heart.
A boy his age  is supposed to be out and about, enjoying his schooling and socialising with other boys and girls. It’s a pity his face has been disfigured by a genetic disorder and that he must suffer pain at night. This sad story teaches the rest of us that we can take comfort in the fact that we’re alive and well.
Ever heard the saying “We complain of having no shoes while others have no feet”? I hope and pray Nduduzo will get the help he’s been promised. M SEREPO, EMAIL
