Story by Jason Russo
I clean all the dining rooms.
There are so many school kids. They’re okay.
I like the old people.
I was working out the back and cleaning the staffroom and the kiosk.
I was very, very lucky. It was during the lockdown.
We had a meeting and of course it was going to happen, and they said things were going to change.
I was a bit worried about it when it first happened.
I was doing things out in the world, but I couldn’t now because we were in lockdown.
I was tired. You couldn’t do anything anymore. It’s just not good. It’s just not fair.
People with Down syndrome and people with all disabilities were all locked up. I really missed going to Holdsworth and Creativity Inc.
But I was still bumping into people who would come in to work.
I was spending more time with Mum and Dad.
Geez! Come on! Please!
Tell Scott Morrison to let people go out. Please. Again, it doesn’t feel fair.
