I am glad to know this brave lady and to have her as part of the Partakers team…

Joyfully After All

For those of you that have been following my blogs since I started WAY back in college you know that I’ve had my up’s and my downs. I have had some very awesome and amazing things happen in my life (graduating from college and grad school, getting married, giving birth to my Snowflake, making some amazing friends and those are just a few high lights).

Benefit tales

From the facebook page ‘The People vs the Government, DWP and Atos”

“I’ve just seen this outside Devizes Job Centre:
A man standing crying and and so distressed he wet himself. He was saying ” they won’t help me! They won’t let me have any money! They say I’ve used all my foodbank vouchers”.
He proceeded to collapse to the ground and curl up in a ball, his arms around his dog. Two passers by were supporting him. One went to buy him some food & the other had gone to get him a blanket. Several people averted their eyes and hurried past!
I couldn’t do any more than was already being done for him, though I would have liked to help. I cried my eyes out for him and cried in anger at the vile, despicable people who are sitting in the Job Centre a few feet away doing…
