"No more turning away from the weak and the weary" - listen to the disabled crying out against EVV

When you do not listen to hundreds of the disabled crying out for EVV for live-ins to be struck down, you are turning away.  Pink Floyd said it best:

On the turning away, from the pale and downtrodden and the words they say which we won't understand.  Don't accept that what's happening is just a case of others' suffering or you'll find that your're joining in the the turning away.  It's a sin that somehow, light is changing to shadow and casting it's shroud over all we have known.  Unaware how the ranks have grown.  Driven on by a heard of stone.  We could find that we're all alone in the dream of the proud.  On the wings of the night as the daytime is stirring, where the SPEECHLESS unite in a silent accord.  Using words you will find are strange and mesmerized as they light the flame.  Feel the new wind of change on the wings of the night.  NO MORE TURNING AWAY FROM THE WEAK AND THE WEARY NO MORE TURNING AWAY FROM THE COLDNESS INSIDE.  Just a world that we all must share.  It's not enough just to stand and stare.  Is it only a dream that there'll be no more turning away??
