This morning I noticed my daughter was looking more tired than usual and asked of her state of mind. Horrified, I hear that, following a few weeks seconded to ICU, she is experiencing sleepless nights following recurring dreams of the poor, alone patients that she has sat with and comforted as they died. Additionally, recollections of conversations with colleagues, now returned to their usual clinic following weeks on COVID wards, uncontrollable crying and anxiety following being present and involved in so many deaths. Then I turn on the TV and listen o the usual placating drivel of those in charge and the world's obsession with the it's minor troubles. Then the ongoing campaign to rid our country of it's heroes that built this great country. I know it's great as I've experienced most of the shit-holes of the world, and concluded that, even though we don't always get it right we're always damn close. We have an ineffectual police force, and inept government, and a ruling class that continue to line their pockets and screw the rest of us. But we will get over this, stay safe!
