Reflect on Covid 19

By Francis
Filed Under Latest News  | | Comments Off on Reflect on Covid 19

I cant help reflecting on what’s important at this time of a Worldwide Health Crisis!

Less cars on the road , less pollution , less rubbish around our villages  – Maybe Nature has a way of telling us that we need to look at what we are doing to our planet?

But also spare a thought for those living with domestic abuse , it is no doubt a worse time for them where work or social interaction offered some solace!

Or those going through Sexual , Mental or physical abuse , it is no doubt a worse time for them where work or social interaction and school offered some solace!

Spare some time to think of Parents struggling with Children who are feeling the strain of Lockdown!

Spare some time to think of People with Disability that are feeling frustrated and helpless!

Spare some time to think of Our Elderly that are feeling vulnerable!

Also reflect on who are our hero’s at this time , Our GPs . Doctors , Nurses , Ambulance staff  ,Care staff  etc some of these are on low wages ,  We depend on them all to keep us safe and well!

Lets reflect on all those who have come forward and answered Ireland’s call , those who look after our local communities and those in need at this strange time!

We are in strange times – its ok to feel anxious , its ok to feel afraid , its ok to feel insecure , after all we have had our world turned upside down Our norms are not as Normal for now!

In these strange times we need to Keep Safe and Be Kind , Help each other where we can , contact Friends and Family by phone or Apps!

We don’t yet know how but we will come through this and hopefully we will be a better and kinder race when we do!

For now look after yourselves and each other!

 

When this passes , will we have all learned a lesson ? Will we be a better , kinder and more compassionate Country ?

 

There is a lot to reflect on now and will be a lot more when this is over!

 

For now Stay Safe , Be Kind

The Lockdown is not over – the Guide is very clear – we all need to protect firstly ourselves and then others! The 5K travel restriction is still in place, social distance is still in place, washing hands and cough etiquette is still in place! People should not be out of their homes unless to go to work or short and safe exercise! We are advised to wear Facemasks in spaces where there is other people and a high risk like supermarkets, Public Transport etc Safe disposal of Gloves and Facemasks is necessary to avoid spreading the infection! It’s very simple you risk your own health and the health of others by not following guidelines! We also risk a New surge of the Virus! Covid 19 is a virus and people can die from it! Still every day More deaths are announced – this is someone’s Family! Stay Safe and Be Kind!

Cllr Francis Timmons is running as an Independent Candidate for Dublin Mid-West says ‘’If elected I will lobby and call for a Referendum to be held that Every Child is entitled to a home free from Abuse and Neglect  , I am calling on any candidates running for the Dail to publicly support this and to commit to supporting it if they are elected. There is no sense of urgency in the delivery and building of Homes . Many Children are growing up in Hotels , Hubs or Direct Provision while many more are in Homeless services , if we are serious about cherishing all the children of the Nation Equally we need to deliver homes for Children where they are safe. I believe that this human right should be enshrined in the Irish Constitution.’’

Cllr Francis Timmons who is running as an Independent Candidate for Dublin Mid-West says ‘’If elected I will lobby and call for a National Day of Remembrance for all survivors of Institutions  and to remember all those who didn’t survive , We also need a Survivors museum and a Healing Garden, Survivors need to be able to share and tell their story if they wish. I am also opposed to locking up files for 75 years which I believe is a blatant attempt to cover up the many wrongs of the past. The Retention of Records Bill is a slap in the Face to all Survivors , Survivors should decide how the records are maintained ‘’

Timmons says ‘’I also believe The site of the last Magdalene Laundry on Sean Mc Dermot Street must remain in state ownership and serve as a place of remembrance and healing for all those who went through church and state institutions.’’

Timmons says ‘’Many of us felt firstly no one would listen and secondly that no one would believe us , I hope that Survivors issues and the needs of Survivors is dealt with by the next Government in real and meaningful manner, this Election Gives Survivors a chance to voice their issues to all Candidates running for the Dail ’’
