Letter - Monday good for the mind
Monday good for the mind
For some reason back in 2007, following some trauma in my life, I was in a group session for a number of weeks and we were asked every Friday to read Monday Magazine cover to cover to help us get out of our painful depression with a good check on reality. I never understood it at the time, but have to tell you I'm a convert. Your voice of focus on the reality of life works.
I believe research-based journalism is the best way toward freedom from things getting worse. My story on the bus pass challenge is a good example of how a small thing like a $45 bus pass can lead to a crisis if the solution is avoided or ignored or excused by stupid rules that people make on our behalf as so-called government.
We are over policed and over governed. Socially excluded, vulnerable people need a voice, and Monday Magazine is that voice. I can tell you that (because of your article) two people whom I met, but do not know well, gave me bus tickets to see me through the week toward pension day. I am now able to go to my doctor visit. Thank you for your awesome work.
