we do say but what can we DO!

yes, we do, scream and rant and say coherently of our thoughts and values, in society.
Many want improvements, many want change and most people have difficulties effecting such change.
For myself i feel i do say and my voice is valuable.
but i want it to SAY enough to effect the changes i see as needed.
When you read Irish headlines as in today, that 80% of our disabled kids are not being assessed adequately within the legal time frame what on earth does one feel and then say and follow with DO?
This is a human rights crime my friends.
I have said before, standing up and castigating the church on its human rights violations and claiming my country will not tolerate sexual abuse by clergy because, we are 'a modern society' well Enda, what is modern about neglecting the kids in this way?
or is that, - our modern society, aka modern world?
Methinks the word 'modern' means progressive and regressive.
we have lost souls, through the church abuse and through greed in money.
we do not care, how can i say this and effect change.
can i grab a teenager and train em up to care properly, drag him/her away from the infernal computer, which in my dotage is taking over my life as well (but thats for another days blog), can i open my door and scream about injustice to be considered 'ah that the mad woman again' (another days blog), or do we all endure what 'modern society' is doing to our kids, our pockets and our lives?
I am furious with my government, who are so smug and yet do nothing for the least able.
Our consultants are some of the highest paid in the European zone and treat most patients as if they are a burden not the source of their weekly wage. more so those of us who are disabled and challenged in life, we get it in the throat when sitting in front of one of these human intelligence machines, whose soul went out with the toilet water my friends, because at present i do not see no soul around my parts.
Yes, we have cuts.
do they tell us where?
and why?
so that i too know not to ring a consultant for the overdue appointment that is badly needed.
Not to ring a consultant to ask about rheumatology difficulties.
well i email, out of this country, into another.
and get an answer!
yet cannot get one of my dignified educated elite, whom i am paying, to answer any dialogue i attempt to make in order that I personally have a better quality of life.
to be educated is enough, but to not to use it for good advantage and that of others is wrong.
when PAID, its dreadful to ignore those who need care.
Modern society we are not and Enda, we never were and will never be in my lifetime anyway.
get up and act on words we all feel and know and understand.
Disadvantage stinks, and its messy and horrible.
I am in that place along with others,
we have the voice but not the means to effect change.
those who have the means to do this will you please here this voice as i type from the horizontal.
