Drawing: We’ll Be The Cure

Dear Oscar,

My latest drawing of you is based on lyrics from “The Cure” by Lady Gaga. It says that if you ever feel run down, or even if you feel okay, we’ll do our best to heal you with our support. If we could, we would definitely try and be the cure to whatever you may be feeling.
I hope you’re okay under such unfair circumstances. We are all still fighting your corner and won’t stop. Meanwhile, don’t let this unfortunate patch stop you from going on to doing great things in the future, or make you think you can’t carry on where you left off. It’s never too late to be what you haven’t been.
Don’t live an average life; defy the odds! You have a lot of unfinished success, so don’t let yourself be held back.

Love Sara. x

One Day

Oscar, I have been thinking about you today. Because I feel you need to be with your family, even if it is for the shortest leave that can be granted. You have behaved well for such a long time. You never misbehave, you are like a lamb, tame, accepting count your blessings Oscar of having a family that is behind you and which love you like a diamond. Try not to stress “we are all here” Those are the words said by men of GodApostle Paul while they were thrown into prison for preaching word of God.. The son of God opened the prison strong doors to show his power over our earthly items. The men of God did not run away because they loved God and trusted Him. One day Oscar you will be home and read these messages.



Dear Oscar, 

the ParaAthletics in London are over and I like to share a few headlines from German news sites that report on and celebrate the victories of Johannes Floors.
Johannes (22) decided to have his malformed feet amputated when he was 16 years old. He got his first prosthetic legs in summer 2012 when he focused on his A levels and not on running. That happened in 2013. Since then his sprinting qualities are accelerating.

Previous to the Para Athletics he was quoted saying that you, Oscar, were his hero and that he admires you: “Oscar Pistorius is my hero. If you look at paralympic sport, it’s Oscar. I don’t want to mention everything that happened with his girlfriend. That’s horrible. But it has nothing to do with sport. He brought the Paralympic sport and double amputees to where they are now. He knew how to run. He was the first professional Paralympic double amputee athlete and he was amazing.”

After the 400m race on 17 July he wrote on Facebook, “400m GOLD and world champion! I couldn’t be happier thinking about everything I did to achieve this victory pays off now…”

Floors won Silver over 100m and Gold in the 200m and 400m race, as well as in the 4x100m relay.

The headlines say Floors is the “New Blade Runner”, the “German Blade Runner”, or that he is [your] worthy successor, “crown prince Floors walking in Pistorius’ footsteps”.

Perhaps you will meet each other one day – I wish it to you both.

Deborah (Germany)

Jy sal nooit alleen staan nie

Vasbyt ou mater. Jy ken my nie maar ek dink aan jou en glo my jy sal nooit alleen staan nie. Jy is nie in ‘n lekker plek nie maar ek sal vir jou bid en glo net en dinge sal vir jou reg uitwerk.

English Translation:
Hang in there old mate. You do not know me but I think of you and believe me you will never stand alone. You are not in a nice place but I will pray for you and just believe and things will work out for you.

It Has Been Long

We pray for you to keep “hope” things are going to be all right for you. I pray to my God that those that are in power may be touched by the finger of God, our Heavenly Father to think about you. It has been long. You deserve a move from prison. From 24 hour watch. You don’t need that now. You need few minutes with your siblings and family. I am praying for this. We love you Oscar, we discuss about you, we hope for the best. You are still young you have a great future in front of you. God is going to be with you. You are going to flourish as you had before and despite your status you remained humble as you are. Yes you are at a wrong place but you will leave that place and be with your family. God loves you Oscar,we love you. we think about you and talk about you.
