It may not be a popular opinion to hold, but this is why I am proud to call myself an Afrikaner. In the face of adversity my ancestors did not only manage to survive but flourished in this beautiful country that I call my home.
Voortrekker monument, Pretoria: "At the foot of the Monument stands a bronze sculpture of a Voortrekker woman and her two children by South African sculptor Anton van Wouw. It pays homage to the strength and courage of the Voortrekker women who played as big a part in this historic event as the men."
By Voortrekker Pas is daar 'n monument van 'n vrou wat weg loop van Natal af. Dit is in nagedagte van Susanna Smit, die suster van Gert Maritz, wat gesê het sy sal eerder kaalvoet terug oor die berge trek as om in Natal onder Britse beheer te bly.
