A South African student from the North West University in Potchefstroom is going viral after posting a video of him inspiring peace through sharing love.
North West University, South Africa – The University protests, which are in their second year, have turned violent with some students and citizens taking to the streets to express their anger.
But some students and community members are not joining the masses.
Rynaard De Goede is one of those incredible South Africans. The NWU student took to social media to inspire peace and love instead of protesting.
The video has already been shared over 10 000 times and viewed over 300 000 times on Facebook, with people leaving messages of thanks and admiration on the post.
The video starts off with De Goede putting a sign outside one of the lecture halls at North-West University, offering free hugs.
He then puts on a blindfold, and that’s when the magic happens!
“Love does not cause division. Love does not label. Love does not decimate. Love knows no boundaries. Love overcomes all. #JustLove” – Rynaard De Goede
The response has been amazing with people sharing and commenting on the post.
Kevin Owens commented: “Goosebumps bro. Well done. Proud is not even the right word. Keep making a difference!”
