The FW de Klerk Foundation decided to dedicate its second 2 February conference to the theme of the things that unite us as South Africans. In doing so, it is not our intention to pretend that there are not many issues that still divide us - or that South Africa is not faced with enormous challenges and problems. None of us can escape the reality of continuing inequality; massive unemployment; dismal educational performance; service delivery problems, crime and corruption. We cannot avoid these realities because they confront us every time we open a newspaper or watch the evening news or sit down to dinner with our friends.
