How many more women will be hurt before this changes?

One of our campaigners has some important questions.

How many more women will be hurt before this changes?  I'm crying out to you here.

I'm seeing my friends sent away.  Hearing the hurt in their voices.  They echo in my head at night.

Why are you doing this to us? You make these changes and don't think it through. You are meant to care for us, but you see pound signs not people.

What will it take for it to change?  A death? Will that be the moment it changes, when you can't ignore it any more. 

When someone says that everything is so shit and there's no one who knows them near by to help, so they call it a day.

I don't think that would do it. You'd find a way to say you weren't involved, that it would have happened anyway.  We'll know better.  We all will.

Enough now.  Enough. Mums away from their kids at Christmas is next on the list.  Daughters and sisters, friends and family ill and alone.

You're heartless in your offices.  Do something.  I'm crying out to you here.

  1. I know I said I'd leave it tonight, but this is all a compulsive read.I'm trawling and re read this.
    How can it be that neither I nor anyone else has commented on this truly impassioned plea. It's heartbreaking in its honesty and it's raw emotion.
    LISTEN to it Lancashire Care.
    LISTEN with opened ears and hearts. Break your heart's of stone and restore your heart's of flesh. LISTEN!

    I'm truly done for tonight.
