I say this because it is obvious the term SURVIVOR does not really explain what or how we are surviving in our everyday lives today. We are all witnesses of our own experiences as well as others who suffered the Industrial schools and of course the Magdalene Laundries.

We are also not being listened to, nor heard, nor understood by any government office who claimed on doing so in the Dail to the public tax payer.

    being a survivor is not enough .

    the meaning of the word “survivor”. doubtless the word survivor has different meanings to different people. the word survivor for me means somebody who has survived something. childhood abuse for example. but is being a survivor enough? what about being a thriver?

    Robert, when one looks at your website it soon becomes clear that you are experiencing concerns with various departments with their lack of response.
    I know how you feel because I haven’t received a response from you in relation to our e-mail dated 27th January 2012.

    • Hi Albert I am so sorry as i am new at this and still trying to find how the site works please forgive me.
      Albert,sometimes I just get tired of trying to work this site so please do not take anything personal.This was the first time I had seen your comments and I would like to thank you for sending.
      When you say our email who do you mean please just so that I know. By the way no I did not get any copy of the email.
      My heart is good to do what ever I can to please, but as I said to others I am very new at this and find it hard, but I hope to do better, thank you Albert again highest respect Robert
