I decided I should let you know about something, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).

It actually happened a while ago. On June 1st, Injured Workers Day!

As you probably read in the past, injured workers and people who support injured workers met and protested on Ouellette Ave., here in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.  In front of the building where Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB), is located.

We met at 4:00 p.m.  Many of us wore yellow T-shirts that advertised and promoted the Ontario Network of Injured Workers Groups (ONIWG).

ONIWG not only supports injured workers within our province of Ontario.  They also annually hold what they call, #JUSTICE BIKE RIDE, showing bicycles and bike-riders on the T-shirts. 

Also, the T-shirts say, In Unity There is Strength.

I must admit, I truly agree with what the T-shirts said.  And, appreciate what ONIWG members did this year, just like they've done in the past.

Every year, ONIWG has people who are bike riders meet in a city away from Toronto, Ontario.  In the past, they met in Windsor, but this year, they met in Ottawa, Ontario.

Those people rode their bikes along the way to Toronto, wearing those yellow T-shirts while supporting and promoting injured workers.  For this, I am truly thankful.

Of course, they arrived and met in Toronto at the Injured Workers Day meeting that was advertised and promoted to happen on June 1st.  Again, I must say I am truly thankful. 

Thank you!  May God bless you for all you have done for injured workers!

I'm also thankful that they provided us with those yellow T-shirts. 


Because we do not have T-shirts of our own.  And, by wearing them, like the ONIWG members were doing, we were able to honour them, and other fellow injured workers.

Yes, we did that.  We met.  We did our protest in a quiet way. 

There were signs so drivers could read while driving by.  Or, read while they were stopped by the traffic light nearby.

We didn't do anything to hurt WSIB or any of their workers.

Thinking about all we did, made me think of Philippians 2:3, "Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves."

Amen.  We need to do nothing through strife or vainglory, but in lowliness of mind, we need to esteem others better than ourselves. 

Just like we did, while supporting ONIWG members and other injured workers.

For this, I am truly thankful. 

Thankful to all who supported injured workers on Injured Workers Day.

Of course, I am thankful to God.

And, always will be.

Thank You, Lord!

Until next time...
