Yesterday I asked you what 86,400 means to you. What nobody thought about is what it means to Rion McNeally what’s been stuck in East Burmington Hospital now for weeks.
For Rion 86,400 is the number of seconds every single day he spends in that hell hole he’s in, hoping this campaign is going to take off and get him out of there.
We all has the same number of seconds every single day as Rion’s got. The difference is that some of us spend 28,800 of them seconds working 8 hours a day. Then we spends another 900 or so on meals. Some of them meals is spent in pubs with mates and some more is spent playing darts and drinking ales so add on another 1,400 to 2,000 seconds to that.
You get the idea, right?
Out of them 86,400 seconds, we spends most of them with people we know and loves, doing things we sometimes loves and sometimes hates, and being free to do as we please. If we doesn’t wants to work, we doesn’t. If we doesn’t wants to sleep, we doesn’t. If we doesn’t wants to eat, we doesn’t.
But poor Rion is stuck up there with no time to call his own, being made to jump through hoops for the likes of Dr. Aidan Beresford-Smith. It’s about time we all put a few seconds aside every day to #SaveRionMcNeally from #AutismAbuse.
