Apartheid Museum

Today was another amazing day. We started this morning doing our second day of training. Today we trained the clinical staff at the Houghton office. Everyone did a great job. Hospice Wits staff were very complimentary and asked a lot of questions. They're eager to meet individually with us tomorrow so they can ask more specific questions about their particular areas.

After lunch we went to the Apartheid Museum. (The pictures are of us in the hospice van). This is an amazing museum that is a testament to the horrors of the apartheid era. What made this visit even more amazing is that we had the privilege of being accompanied by 5 staff from our sister hospice. Although they hadn't been to this museum before, they were all very aware of its subject matter. As Innocent, one of Hospice Wits' drivers told us, "I don't have to read everything that's displayed because we (he and his family) lived through it. What a humbling experience for us... We're all struck by how horrible man can be to fellow man. Equally important to note is how new generations can truly make a difference. Our South African colleagues are so very positive and full of hope- and so are we.
