6:30 in the morning in South Africa, 131 years ago today the troops were getting ready for morning parade. The Zulu Impi was stirring in the morning mist.
Non of them knew what awaited their day.
in Africa there is a saying." When the Lion wakes he knows he must catch his food for the day. When the gazelle wakes he knows he must be quick to avoid being food. So whether your a lion or a lamb you have to hit the ground running."
