Dear Editor,
Last Sunday, while driving to church, as I approached the junction at Mandela Avenue and the East Bank Highway, one of two young girls who were selling newspapers, attempted to cross the road, causing me to ‘brakes up.’

She eventually turned back and as I was about to pass her, she looked in my direction and with the innocence of youth planted on her face, she said, “sorry.”

Any intention I had of upbraiding her disappeared into the morning sunlight, and with a smile I continued my journey to church.
Yours faithfully,
Maurice Abrahams
