For various reasons I am rather glad that I am not the Dean of a medical school but, knowing that if I were the Dean of a medical school in Taiwan, I would have to donate my body for research is not one of them. The belief is that having been such a valuable teacher in life, it is important to carry on with this work after death – ‘a silent mentor’ as it is known.

Since my husband and I are both retired we have decided to travel and see the world for as long as we are physically and financially able to do so. We lived carefully while our children were growing up so that we could give them a good education and assist them in developing into independent their adults. Now that they are both married and settled in their own homes we have decided to SKI – spend the kids inheritance and it is great fun.

Most of us have seen the joke which has been on Face Book and in e-mails for a couple of years. It goes something like this:

When a baby is in its 1st year, parents will say he/she is nearly … weeks or months; … When children are in the 1st ten years of life they describe themselves as 7 and a half etc; When one is a teenager, the age is always nearly 16 or 18 or soon I shall be 21;                      In our twenties we look forward to being 30 and then we worry about nearing 40 and so it goes on until in our 90s we revert to being 92 and a half and then almost 100.

Each year for 16 days from 25 November to 10 December many countries in the world bring the plight of battered women and children to the notice of the public – 16 Days of Activism Against Abuse of Women and Children.  In South Africa this is probably more esssential and poignant than anywhere else.

Statistics may seem boring to some and to others are just that – statistics. Why should we care?  I agree that many sets of statistics seem to be lists of figures about which we can do nothing or do not seem to have a direct relevance to us so we skim over them. Others, such as those describing violence we choose to ignore because it seems to awful to think about and here in SA we have become almost immune to it. As I need to keep this brief and to the point I shall only mention here that 1 in 6 women in South Africa is abused by her partner with at least 1 in 4 having to flee to a place of safety. South Africa, I am ashamed to admit, has the worst record of baby & child rape in the world. For more statistics to open your eyes and mind to this shocking situation go to the Soul City website from which I found these few figures.
