It is bad enough having to live with bars on the windows and robust security gates for the doors, but razor wire on the roof? I realize such changes happened incrementally over time but it is living in the equivalent of a war zone. Do people realize that or do they just assume this is the way normal societies function? I have great admiration for the South African people of European descent and what they built out of the wilderness but is there any hope of finding peace with the majority population?
