Our greatest strengths are our greatest weaknesses

South Africa is a prosperous country, beautiful, diverse, and defiantly showed to be a spectacular host for the 2010 World Cup. All around the world we have showed continent by continent that South Africa can and has done the unthinkable, we hosted the 2010 World Cup. With all the wonderful highlights and gorgeous landmarks we attract thousands of tourists from across the globe. Yes, this is great for our economy as tourists brings in wealth yet, at the same time we attract the wrong people who do the wrong things, which tarnishes South Africa's image.

Beauty such as South Africa's popular land marks can attract the wrong crowd; a trafficking service where young children or adults are targeted. Our country is filled with beautiful women and attracts wrong men causing a ‘missing child’ line-up on most of the published media. With the influx of tourists, crime rate is high and communities are vulnerable and vulnerability one can see as clear as day light.

Yes, we are a beautiful country with a diverse nation which is our great strength yet, this is also our greatest weakness as we attract wrong crowds each driven with various motives and puts our strength, our beautiful nation to jeopardy.

  1. Does this mean that we shouldn't allow tourists/foreigners into our country?
    well structured, check punctuation though.
