HER WORDS

Sunday Tribune - - NEWS -

“MY par­ents have cel­e­brated my ev­ery suc­cess. I wish my dad was here to cel­e­brate my re­cent suc­cess. I know he is in heaven re­joic­ing.

“I thank you (the SAPS hi­er­ar­chy) for in­vest­ing in us, the ‘hu­man cap­i­tal’. A happy work­force is a com­mit­ted work­force. All a po­lice of­fi­cer wants to hear is a thank you and grat­i­tude for the work done. I be­lieve in the say­ing: ‘The hands that serve are holier than the lips that pray’.

Also, ‘To whom much is given, much is re­quired’. Be­fore we are born, our lives are des­tined. We have a choice to be­come who we were cre­ated to be.

“One smile from a child or just a hug is so re­ward­ing. There can be no greater joy for a po­lice of­fi­cer than to hear a child say words of ap­pre­ci­a­tion… If I can solve one per­son’s prob­lem, make one per­son happy, that could start a chain re­ac­tion. We all need hope.

“I wish to con­tinue with projects such as Each one Reach one, the Pa­per Bag cam­paign; and To Act is to Care.”
