Was glued to the TV the third day in a row, when my son asked me, “Mamma, when will your programme end?”
The answer he wanted was, “in a few minutes, and after that, you can watch Power Rangers.”

“In a few hours”, the TV channels had been assuring us for the past 36 hours.
“By the end of the day”, was a fairly realistic answer.
“Never!”, though, is the most appropriate answer.
Because none of this will ever end till every single one of us takes responsibility for bringing about change. Will we?
