A little chair

25th August, 2009

Visited a wonderful drugs project in my constituency this afternoon. They focus on harm reduction in the inner city. Was having a look around their facilities. I walked through their waiting room where something caught my eye.

The room was surrounded by normal plastic chairs (the kind you would see in a school room). Except in the corner there was a brightly coloured little chair for very young kids.

Said it all, really. The people these projects are looking after are mams and dads, sisters and brothers. We cannot forget them in the world of McCarty, NAMA etc.

The little chair made that point to me.
