Something is Not Right Here
Walking through the streets I see starving children ,homeless people,you might think I was in a third world country…but no this is Glasgow 2013,the home of the 2014 Commonwealth games,with new stadia,athletes village and down the road football fans are bringing various assortments of food to foodbanks,now I am no political genius but something is not right here.
How much will the Commonwealth games cost? How much will the district council make?
How much will go back into the city to rid ourselves of the poor,hungry and homeless,I would like to think it would be a great amount,but my gut feeling is that very little of the profits will help these people,come 2015 the situation will still be the same if not worse.
Then there is the energy charges situation,people being forced whether to eat or heat…the word humanity seems to have left our vocabulary,what happened to people looking out for each other,now it seems to be…I’m alright,I’m 55 and fortunate enough to be in work at this time,but if you are a pensioner or on benefits,you have to make a choice about eating or keeping yourself and your children warm and safe.
I finish this short blog asking you to think of other people not as well off as yourself,do you know the difference a nod or a hello can make to a persons day,even week,take care everyone.
