Go To Sleep Now, Nel

I was so relieved to hear the wisdom of Judge Masipa yesterday, and now hope that horrid Nel, who seems obsessed with crucifying Oscar will just go away and accept the judge’s decision. He has made a fool of himself in our opinion and become boring, wanting only his own fame out of this, not realising that the Steenkamps must also want to move on, as Oscar, the Pistorius family and all of us. We who can see this was a tragic accident, and some of us who also have knowledge of how it happened through the insecurity of a disabled persons eyes, believe that the pain Oscar will carry with him for the rest of his life, is punishment enough. He has however overcome all the adversity in his life with courage and will come through this also stronger than ever, unlike little Nel the heartless bully , who can only wallow in his ultimate failure and spend the rest of his life the bitter little excuse for a man that he is, his greatest hour humiliating a broken amputee infront of the world.

So Happy

Dear Oscar I’m SOOO happy that the appeal was not granted yesterday. Eat your heart out Nel. We will keep on supporting you and now we can just start counting down the days (years). We love you and we will always support you.

Lord Give You Grace Each Day

Dear Oscar,

Our prayers have been answered! Hooray for such a wise and immovable judge as Judge Thokozile Masipa who refused to bow to Gerrie Nel’s bullying. Kudos for Barry Roux for his argument: “Eight years in effect, eight years for a man who’s vulnerable – who that night made a mistake of his life and who lost everything he had, who fell from the top to the bottom, who came out of jail and had to go back; Inappropriate? My lady it cannot be.”

The world rejoices with you today Oscar. After this you can face and cope with anything. You are strong and resilient, and will with good behaviour be eligible for parole before you know it. Just hang in there my dear boy, and try not to give them reason to condemn you further. Learn to control your impulses, and request another doctor to review your medication. A lot of privately prescribed treatment have generic equivalents, so give them a try, and rely on the Lord to give you grace to deal with each day. Only for today, not tomorrow – and when tomorrow comes, seek that grace anew. That’s the secret of getting through the darkest trials. Become a source of inspiration to other inmates, and you will find a purpose for your life which will bring you deep satisfaction.

You have a new and victorious life waiting for you. This is just the furnace of affliction to try you, so submit to it without resistance, and give the whole nightmare to Jesus who will gladly relieve you of it.

We are standing with you through it all. May God strengthen you and give you peace.

With love, Granny Jenny

Another Battle

Dear Oscar,

Thinking about you as yet again you face another legal battle. One thing you can continue to count on is the love and support of so many around the world who can see how unfairly you have been treated.

When I saw this quote from Nelson Mandela I thought of you and I hope knowing you have so much support gives you encouragement to hold on, stay strong and most of all have HOPE.

We believe in you Oscar.
