Yes today it is Youth Day in South Africa, This day commemorates the Soweto Uprising which was a series of protests led by high school students in South Africa that began on the morning of 16 June 1976. Students from numerous Sowetan schools began to protest in the streets of Soweto in response to the introduction of Afrikaans as the medium of instruction in local schools. An estimated 20,000 students took part in the protests. The number of people who died is usually given as 176. June 16 is now a public holiday. It is just so sad, that so many of today's youth do not take education seriously.
As the holiday is on a Sunday, we are lucky to have the Monday off as well, so a lovely long weekend.
Today as usual is also the new image releases at Digistamps4Joy One of these is "Mistri - solitude" which I have used for my card, and the DT ladies have made some gorgeous cards for inspiration.
The image was coloured with Aquarelle pencils and Twinkling H2O's
