So we now have a Conservative government and to be honest I cannot even pretend to be anything but devastated about it all.
I have real fear for the future of those with disabilities. Those who struggle to make ends meet. Those who have nowhere to live and my list goes on and on.
I am actually feeling truly despondent.
Yet after listening to Ed Miliband’s leaving speech I was reminded of something.
“Finally, I want to say this. The course of progress and social justice is never simple or straightforward. Change happens because people don’t give up, they don’t take no for an answer, they keep demanding change.
This is my faith: where we see injustice, we must tackle it. ”
People can bring change and we can fight injustice. Maybe Russell Brand is right it’s time for a revolution.
A time for compassion.
A time for community
A time for change.
A time for us all to find our voices and start shouting louder.
A time to fight for what we believe in.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.
I have to have hope and I for one aren’t staying down
