On Lewisham Hospital, and doing my bit

I have been wondering lately if I have the power to change anything, anything at all in the big wide world, or whether I might not be better just battening down the hatches and giving my full attention to looking after those closest to me. I am forever reading stuff that makes me sad – and more often mad – for example I’ve written on LearnerMother about food banks, human trafficking and ethical clothing production – all issues that I want to have the power to change. I don’t have any power of course, so I do what little I can – I try and make ethical choices when I’m purchasing goods and services; I write about stuff so my readers get to hear about it, I sign petition after petition and I tweet/fb information about issues that I think are important.
