Oscar Pistorius



For those who have read my book, you know that Oscar Pistorius has been a hero of mine. I admired his bravery in exposing himself to doubters, his impressive work ethic and his accomplishments for the disabled. I am aware that every human being is a mixture of imperfections and good qualities and that it is unreasonable to expect athletes to be supermen morally. On the other hand, is it too much to expect that he not murder a cowering woman hiding in his bathroom?

The truth is I can admire his athletic accomplishments still, but so what? There is a moral line that cannot be crossed, ever. He claims it was mistaken identity or an accident, and the trial will determine the truth. This is why we must try to wait before convicting him internally—but I can still feel betrayed by him. By putting himself out there, he became a role model for thousands of disabled people. It is breaking my heart for his victim, his wasted potential and the flawed nature of humanity. The life we have is so precious that the loss or waste of it is deeply sad.

    I have just edited my book Oscar Pistorius Reeva Steenkamp A Double Tragedy, to include a numerological analysis of Judge Masipa and Barry Roux as they relate to Oscar Pistorius. I have been unable to obtain birth details for Gerrie Nel so far. Working with what I have, it would appear that there is a correlative “full house” you might say, numerologically speaking, operating for the defence team, and the prosecution would have to come up with a “royal flush” to beat it.
