    Where is the land of milk and honey?

    Elke keer as die wolke dreun, val die reën op die grond net vir ons geleen
    Every time you hear the thunder and the rain drops fall on the ground – that has just been lend to us
    Voel jy weer soos ‘n spook, want jy staan alleen
    You feel like a ghost because you stand alone
    In die land van melk en heuning
    In the land of milk and honey
    Jy weet ek sal vir jou ‘n spoorweg lyn wou bou
    You know I would have built you a railway line
    Wat strek van ver uit die noorde sande Tot in die ou Karoo
    From the northern dessert to the old Karoo
    Ek sal jou veilig hou
    I want to keep you safe
    Maar wie kan ek vertrou
    But who can I trust
    Jy weet ons kan nie so verloor nie
    You know we cannot loose this way
    Dit is nie wat ek wil hoor nie
    This is not what I want to hear
    Every time you hear the thunder and the rain drops fall on the ground that just been lend to us
    You feel like a ghost because you stand alone.
    In the land of milk and honey

    Jy kyk vir my maar jou oë is leeg. En jou voete staan stil. Jy moet aan beweeg
    You look at me, but your eyes are empty
    Your feet are not moving
    You know you need to leave

    Jy is afgebreek, en nou sê my
    You are broken down. Now, tell me
    Waar’s die land van melk en heuning?
    Where is the land of milk and honey?

    Daar word van ons gevat en ons regte word geskend
    They are taking from us
    Our rights are broken down

    Daar word gedink dat wat ons oor het, het ons gekry maar net
    They think what we’ve got left
    We got just like that
    En daar was bloed voor gesweet
    But it took sweat and blood
    Gaan nou lewens op eet
    Now it is going to eat our lives
    Moet ons nou stry vir ons eie mensereg
    Do we fight for our human rights?
    Dit word so gou vergeet
    So easily forgotten

    Elke keer as die wolke dreun val die reën op die grond net vir ons geleen
    Voel ek weer soos ‘n spook want jy staan alleen
    In die land van melk en heuning
    Jy kyk vir my, maar jou oë is leeg
    En jou voete staan stil
    Jy moet aan beweeg
    Jy is afgebreek, en nou sê vir my,
    waar’s die land van melk en heuning?

    (4x) Van die land van melk en heuning

    In die land van melk en heuning

    Elke keer as die wolke dreun, val die reën op die grond net vir ons geleen
    Voel jy weer soos ‘n spook want jy staan aleen
    In die land van melk en heuning
    Jy kyk vir my maar jou oë is leeg
    En jou voete staan stil
    Jy moet aan beweeg
    Jy is afgebreek, en nou sê my
    Waar’s die land van melk en heuning?

    Thank you for the translation Leopard. The video tells a powerful story which I imagine hits home with many in SA.

    Leopard, having been moved by the power of the video you posted, I watched a few more of Bok van Blerk’s pieces, and though I don’t understand a word he is saying, can still feel feel the power of the stories he is telling. I found myself wishing there was someone doing the same thing in English for the America we are slowing losing to the socialists and one-worlders.

    My apologies to all for getting the thread off track here.

    Thank you, Mountain Biker. I was trying to put my thoughts together about South Africa when the song popped into my head. That is why I posted the music in the news tread.
    I can tell everybody about the vehicles stolen today or people shot during house robberies, or amount of people in hospital with diarrhea because of water. How evil people not only take your belongings but also the life’s of your parents, husband, children.

    So many people are thinking about selling their house, business, vehicles. Leaving their parents behind? Thinking about where to go…. How to cross the language barrier. The cultures of the world.
    If you know the Bible You will understand “the land of milk and honey”
    Leaving you home country, you would like to be able to call some small piece of land your home
    You know you need to run, but your feet won’t move. We know it is time to let go… But where is it safe to run to?
    How do you get out?

    I know that most white South African have left already and are making a success of their careers all over the world. They are hard workers and are being appreciated. Their children grow up learning another first language.

    People flee their countries all over the world. Adapt or die. I think about the Gypsies that would simply keep on travelling from town to town. We do not have Gypsies in South Africa.

    I know I want to keep my small family safe – We need to have healthy food to eat, clean water to drink. But somehow certain people think the earth belongs to only them. And it is safer for like minded people to stick together – keep the strangers outside.
    It all probably comes down to the hierarchy of basic needs:

    I hear you Leopard. It is not easy to pick up and go. Heck, I wouldn’t want to have to leave New England, let alone the US, yet throughout history people have done what they thought was in their families best long term interest. I marvel at my English, French, & Dutch ancestors that came to the New World in the 1600’s leaving everything and everybody behind in Europe, and then my Irish and German ancestors who did the same in the 1800’s, but they did it and built new lives.

    Come to Vermont. Most in the US barely know we exist and pay us little attention. It is about 95% white and there is only one small mosque in the entire State. Our rate of illegals here is multiple times lower than the US as a whole as a % of the population. It is also the only State in the Northeast (maybe in the entire Eastern US) that has enough agricultural resources to feed its entire population. I don’t know what you do for a living but Burlington (our largest city) has a modern economy and sitting on Lake Champlain looking across to the Adirondacks is breathtaking.

    Good luck. Whites in SA have very long histories there and I know it truly is their home, even if they aren’t so welcome anymore. I understand how difficult this topic is.

    Leopard, it is incomprehensible that the hijackers had so little regard for that little boy’s life that they couldn’t give the mother a moment to get him out of the car.

    Perhaps Leopard we shud start a fund or Kickstarter project to help get u the heck out of there, albeit such a tragedy it seems from outsider view, the safest in quotes way ahead for yr family. MountainBiker is correct, Vtis almost like its own little world, Burlington is energetic n forward thinking…the winters are just too long for me…and a few too many pines for my liking..but that is personal preference Leopard. In Vt u could breathe!

    Thank you Tweva. Will let you know if I get to that dead end and need help. The EFF party is advertising how they are going take over Jhb and break the whole country’s economy. (

    I want to share the latest joke. Apparently the farmers in the Karoo is looking into the sky. Not to look at the weather – but to look out for airplanes. http://www.news24.com/MyNews24/Are-they-going-to-bomb-the-Karoo-too-20140729

    Shake Rattle & Roll We had a 5.3 Earthquake at 12h23 our time. Must say something new to experience. I felt it while being in a shopping center. Lasted about one minute only. Looking at the furniture shaking and thinking ,, What !? Very strange noise, must say.
    No damage or injuries as far as I know. Some buildings power are out in some areas towards Freestate.

    Wow scarey aren’t they Leopard. the last we had here was a 4 point something. Was sitting on ground weeding when the ground just started shaking, the clay pots on the deck chattering like mad up and down. Jumped up and ran to gate and pool water sloshing back and forth, up and over.

    Take care – there always seems to be more, smaller aftershocks in the days afterwards.

    The first thing I did was to contact my child’s school. The children were asked to leave the class rooms and was sitting outside. Then I made sure my friends and family were fine. Everybody quickly “checked in”. We were more excited than anything else. Definitely not used to the earth shaking. We find it interesting that it was felt over such a big area of Southern Africa.

    I remember it was a weird and loud sound. Spooky. We’ve had some little seconds long shakers in the past but not like that. Glad everyone was ok!

    “August 2014 – JOHANNESBURG, SA — A 5.3 earthquake has shaken buildings in Johannesburg and surrounding areas. There are no immediate reports of casualties following the tremor Tuesday. The U.S. Geological Survey says it had a magnitude of 5.3. The quake was also felt in Pretoria, the South Africa capital, and Hartbeespoort, a nearby resort town. The USGS said the quake was centered in Orkney, 170 kilometers (105 miles) southwest of Johannesburg. The area has periodic, moderate tremors, though the quake on Tuesday was one of the strongest in recent years. Quakes are a concern to mining companies that operate around Johannesburg. Mining is a traditional pillar of industry in South Africa. –Star Tribune”
