As you may or may not know. I have lost two sisters in my life. And have Wendy as my only living/remaining sister. Last week whilst in LA I received a voice note from my baby brother telling me that our sister had been mugged and attacked. Her car broke down at around midnight in the middle of nowhere and two guys approached. Offered to help her. Long story short, she had to wrestle for her life when the attacks came. Since I was a little girl she’s always taught me the power to stand up for injustice. To speak up for myself. She still fights all my battles. I feel protected knowing that she’s around. Today I thank God that you didn’t die on me. Today I thank God for your life. Thank God you are still here. I love you. @w.mbatha
