Have you lived in a poor area? Because I f**king do.
My town is not the only one where this kind of thing happens - I know of plenty.
Places that weren't exactly The Ritz to begin with are now full-on dives. People who were poor just get poorer.
Many people in the smaller and/or poorer towns and villages around here live two towns away from the nearest library, two or three towns away from the nearest Post Office, a town or two away from the nearest school.
Even the largest towns have fewer and fewer services.
Because of the geography of my area - not to mention the transport links - it will now mean a planned trip for me to get to a bank.
This isn't a problem restricted to me and my rural (though far from the most remote) corner of Wales.
Because once the services and amenities pull out of an area, be they public or private, there is less for the people left behind - less work, less money, less opportunities for education, less incentive to pick themselves up and try again.
And when that happens, more businesses, services, etc., pull out. And it just gets worse. And worse.
When the whole world is saying you and your whole family - your whole community - is not worth the effort and investment they could provide, it gets harder and harder to disagree.
But here's the trick - never give up.
They'll underestimate you, time and time again.
Never stop trying. Never stop speaking up against injustice.
Because you can change the f**king world, my dearest nerdlets - don't EVER let them tell you otherwise.
And if you're in the position to make a difference (you never know who might be reading this, after all) please do.
Keep hoping my nerdlets - I'll see you for more Nerd Church next week! :)
