It was a starless night, and the glimmer of flashing lights in the distance and one medium-sized torch which was running out of batteries were our only guide.
We advanced slowly and cautiously. Our breathing was heavy because of a stuffiness in the air and our excitement.19 Jul 1996 - 12:00am
Happy families will produce healthy, responsible citizens, but many people come from homes where fighting and quarrelling is normal.
They have such a poor relationship with their family that sometimes they wish they had not been born into it.5 Jul 1996 - 12:00am
