Please... If Possible...

It's been a very long time since I discussed here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), anything to do with injured workers.  Today, will be the day.

Before I get into this entry, I would like to share some information with you.  I'm praying you will attend, if you are able to, so that you can be supportive of injured workers.

Injured Workers' Day

Protest at Workplace Safety & Insurance Board (WSIB), Windsor

2485 Ouellette Avenue

1 PM  Sunday June 1st, 2014


Call for justice for all injured workers.

Workers’ compensation is being destroyed to save employers’ money.

Demand justice!  Oppose austerity!

Not on the backs of injured workers!


Unfortunately, I won't be able to join all who will be supportive, that day.  With having a medical procedure done a few days ago, I will not be able to attend.  Please know that I will be praying for this event to be powerful and a blessing.

I am a member of Injured Workers Coalition, here in Windsor, Ontario.  Here is a link to our group's website:  http://injuredworkerscoalition.blogspot.ca/

Please know that you do not have to be an injured worker to become a member of our group.  All you need to be is a person in support of injured workers.

Hopefully, you will watch this YouTube video entitled, The Chain Of Shame:  A Creative Revolt By Injured Workers.  Here is a link for you:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PNe6x652LGY

You'll see that it discusses the difference between the support of injured workers, and those who work for WSIB.  This will probably be shocking to many of you.

Hopefully, you will understand how heartbreaking it is, to see injured workers suffer.  Not just physically, but also financially.  Also, with all this stress of a system that was originally set up to assist those who have been injured while working.

In my opinion, WSIB certainly isn't a loving system.

Knowing this, reminded me that those who work for WSIB are, in essence, not obeying God's Word.

Just as we read, in John 15:12, "This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you."

It seems that many injured workers are unloved.  Unloved by WSIB and by those, who make them suffer more, while going through the system.

I pray.  Regularly.  And, hope you will, also.

Not just for injured workers.  But, also for anyone/everyone who works for WSIB.  In my heart, I wonder how any one of those people who are not loving others, but hurting others, can even sleep at night.

Even so, I make myself show love towards those people.  I forgive them.  Just as God commanded us to do.


Until next time...
