For her, It was 'Africa or Bust!'
... she had told her dying mother when she was 12 years of age she must go and share the Love of her people.
... and the rest is a Love Story and a Pearl of Great Price.
Home became Africa for 22 years, though
for a very short time in the beginning, she lived happily among the Zulus.
But she didn't know the job was only beginning!
She learned fast that Africa called for action, and that the outside world was screaming because of their own first guilt - crimes of humanity called black and white...
and a new word called apartheid - which she learned much to her horror also existed in Africa. She would have loved to stay with her peaceful Zulu folk.
... but she also learned she was to make report.
Moving through many things from the Apartheid Cause, to the Homeless... inside or out of Jail... with or without the Law, inside or out of the Courts... with
or without Police protection, or the Government - from the Environment, Energy, Military or Peaceful Solutions - all that mattered was the truth.

And when the report had gathered enough scraps of paper to fill a book, an old bare-floored room with nothing but a mat to sleep on was found.

'Everything I do I do it for you'
... and she alone knew why.
The rooms were demolished 6 months later,
and it was back on the streets like a fly on the wall.
