I came to understand that at school, you learn about history in bits and pieces, but for children, they find it difficult to connect the pieces into one big old story. Frustrated by this uncertainty and lost in the disorganised loose bits and pieces, they eventually lose interest and hate history as a subject at school. When they become adults, they continue in this mindset of hating and disinterest in the history of the past.
History, when told, is only a story of the past and the events that shaped our life and country. It is a record of events that led to the shape of the future of a country. A person or country can either learn from the past and improve on it for the future, or repeat the same mistakes and be haunted by the past repeating itself. The game is a factual record of all the events that shaped South Africa, brought to you in a delightful, easy to understand and traceable manner for all wanting to know more about South Africa's history.
History as a subject is of fundamental importance to everyone, like in SA where we had to deal with our past hurts, shame, unforgiveness, racism, wars and sabotage.
We need to confess the sins of the past in order for us to become whole; in accepting each other to become a nation, united.
We need to confess openly, frankly and truthfully so that we can deal with past conflicts to be able to come to forgiveness, acceptance, kindness and love. This process will bring us to become a nation that is healed, united and proud, under the South African flag.
By facing our past, we come to acceptance, peace, health and wholeness!
