  1. I just finished reading My name is why. Devastating but not surprising to me. I have, as a teacher and SENCO been responsible for Looked After Children in school. I have witnessed first hand how easily these young people can be misrepresented and misunderstood. Lemn’s story is horrifying for the exposure of cruelty, violence and lack of vital human affection, patience and constancy. I am retired now but I will never forget the children who I championed and tried to defend against the harshness of institutions and imposed rules. One day we have to do so much better with all these precious lives.
