Saint Patrick ☘

Abortion is still illegal in the Republic, and women from there who want an abortion have to travel to England or Wales. I'm pleased Northern Ireland has taken this step, though I worry about the people who work in the clinic and those who will utilise it.

I hope Padraig is looking after things there. This is a step in the right direction.

He says, knowing that the church would murder him for it and this will come back to bite him in the ass. The Church always did hate it when I stood up for the rights of women. As if it was some kind of foreign concept. Absolutely ridiculous.

I can't sleep until I know how Neil is. I spent all night praying and then I thought it would be a good idea to look up Saint Patrick's Day to see how I might even start going about changing a cultural norm because being proactive is supposed to be helpful, only now I feel even more discouraged.

The green. I've gone greenblind. My eyes. And no wonder I'm starting to look like a leprechaun, everyone dresses up as one. I mean, I don't look like [info]me_lucky_charms Liam, but I do look like this a little. I know it's true, it's okay to agree.

I was feeling a little depressed until I found three drawings a group of students had done.

This, I think I can handle )

I may have gotten something in my eye over that last one. Would that I were, Sweetie. In Heaven, or Happy. Either one.

Now I am back to worrying.
