Sobering thoughts...

After my rant about Gordo and the HMRC losing MY INFORMATION!!! I as I do most days read the blogs that I link to.

Today one post really got to me, I don't know why, and I cant explain how a 40+ bloke can sit in tears after reading this post from Mousie. Ive done numerous jobs, served in the Armed Forces, been places, seen and done things, that the average person hasn't and still can't work out what it was that got to me.

Thank you Mousie, thanks for making me human, if human is the right word, thanks for helping me share your experiences, thanks for writing about it.

I want to say so much, but fear that I would detract from the effect of the tale.

I want to rant about MP's who's salaries and perks and pensions mean less money goes to people like Mousie, people on the front line, the ones that really do care for their fellow man and receive a pittance for their efforts. I want to warn about the risks of these people burning out after years of watching people die, even if it is only because its their time to go. About the suffering they see day in and day out, and yet unless it is ourselves or loved ones involved we never give Mousie and her colleagues a second thought.

I really couldn't do your job Mousie, and I thank you for being there and doing what I cannot, I wish you all your heart desires, but please be careful, we need people like you!

Thanks x x x

I can barely do it myself most days!

Thanks for the support.
