When I read about this tragedy and listened to Connor’s Mother Sara Ryan on record Radio Show, I felt that more should be done about this, Connor who had Autism, Learning Disability & Epilepsy sadly passed away due to being left in the bath, neglected and alone in a place where he should have been supported, looked after and cared for he was only 18.
Words fail me at this moment the sadness that Sara his Mother is still going through and the fact that Connor’s death was preventable just doesn’t make sense to me. In 2014 and the 21st Century we should be treating every human being with the respect and dignity they deserve. People with Learning Disabilities should not be “written off” they’re people with hopes, dreams, intelligence, aspirations and have a right for inclusion.
Sara has setup and campaign and I commend her for her strength and bravery to speak out and say this is wrong! And that things need to change and change for the better.
