Tammany: Yes I attended Mr Strickland's talk last night. His words were uplifting.

One does have to look at social services and how things are not right. Even for those people who are just struggling looking for work are treated very unfairly, so those with issues, whether they are mental health, alcohol or drugs, well they are just lost.

It is the system, the social workers cannot do what they trained for as many are just paper pushing, appeasing the bureaucrats, if you get my drift. We all need to stand up and really look at things. Everything is tied together, the inadequate amounts from all social services, the lack of housing, the lack of food, the lack of education opportunities, a real lack of caring.

I was a forum in one of the wards not long ago and well one person spoke up about their trials and tribulations with drugs. The person said they were very nasty.

The message that this person brought was that, we, as a society or community should not give up on those, as this person was now clean and had moved forward.
