“An event occurred that altered human life. It has blinded virtually everyone and rendered human kind helpless.”
Powerful words about a science fiction book written 60 years ago. The event which happened was known in the book as the ‘quiet terror.’
It is powerful enough to make Pat’s petition even more determined to continue its message against the tyranny of the government.
The book may be fiction but there is nothing fictitious about the cruel reality of what we are facing. Each day another horror story comes to light - mercilessly trying to crush the very life out of us.
Pat’s petition grows which gives me enormous encouragement to drive it ever onwards and upwards. To get so much support from people signing is amazing as they have come from all walks of life. Daily emails and ‘phone calls show the strength of feelings against these cuts. Stories of untold misery at this time of year.
In a little over 2 weeks it will be Christmas. A time of joy, happiness and giving to others. For those disabled people , their carers and families there will be little joy or happiness but they will still give. They will invent ways, if they have to, to reach out to each other and spread the words of Pat’s petition. Every one of their signatures will bring that 100,000 closer.
The ‘team’ has continued to give their time and energy into campaigning our message. To them, and all who have signed and will do so in the future – I thank you one and all.
Where injustice becomes law – resistance becomes necessary.
