When I was growing up my Mom often spoke of the memories of her mother’s face and tears following the announcement of WW2. Nan remembered WW1 and all it meant. My unhappiness, and tearful face in 1992 having returned from the count was so evident, that my daughter, then aged 10, can remember it clearly even now. Now my daughters weep for their children. Why is the world doing this to the mothers? Or the fathers, the brothers and the sisters? Time people started supporting each other is now. No more listening to the lies about money, deficits, and banks. People matter.
Stand together, hand in hand.
I might add, that my mother, father and their generation fought to change things, and they gave us our NHS and a caring, welfare state. How they would all sob if they could see the truth of today.
My mother is (fortunately for me) still here and at 85 remembers the birth of Social Security & NHS; she is flabbergasted at the imminent demise x
