Information Evening on Substance Misuse
John Lonergan, Governor of Mountjoy Prison, spoke to a large attendance of well over one hundred people at an 'Information evening of Substance Misuse' in the Patrician Presentation Secondary School on 19th May 2004. The following was one of the five documents he quoted from:

When you thought I wasn't looking

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you hang my first painting on the fridge, and I wanted to paint another one.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you feed a stray cat, and I thought it was good to be kind to animals.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you make my favourite cake just for me, and I knew that little things are special things.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I heard you say a prayer, and I believed there is a God I could always talk to.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I felt you kiss me good night, and I felt loved.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw tears come from your eyes, and I learned that sometimes things hurt, but it's alright to cry.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw that you cared, and I wanted to be everything that I could be.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I looked . . . and wanted to say thanks for all the things I saw when you thought I wasn't looking.
