The Shame of Ireland

The Shame of Ireland

When we left Ireland it was because there was no place for us as we were unprepaired for society.The fact that we left means we are cut off . thankyou to Pauline Jackson for that home truth.

Well im back after a short visit to england. i stayed with my Sister. I did a lot of thinking about the fact that there is no way backwards. i want to be close but i am not sure that i know what that is .without contact between family members we lose the comfort of feeling close to others. i left a long time ago. as far as i know my brothers and sisters all seem to have lived far away from each other. I suppose its because we are all heavely scared inside. keeping our guard up has become natural.there arent any instructions for learning what we should have been learning.and what we did learn from these fanatics is harmfull as thay encourage breakdowns and suffering.had we learnt to make a decent life for ourselves it would have been a lot better for all.
