On Injured Workers Day!

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll be discussing something with you.

It's regarding Injured Workers Day

Most people don't realize that June 1, is Injured Workers Day.  But, it is.

Just so you know, it took me a long time to come across this article that I'll share with you.  Even so, I'm happy to have seen it.

This article is by injurdworkersonline.com that is entitled, Injured Workers Day - a rally against poverty & privatizationhttps://injuredworkersonline.org/injured-workers-day-a-rally-against-poverty-privatization/.

Hopefully, you clicked on that link, and read the article.  Even so, I'll share some of it with you (I copied/pasted):

Fortunately the sun shone  Saturday as injured workers, their families, advocates, labour unions and supporters gathered  at Queen’s Park for the 36th annual Injured Workers’ Day, following the Friday night vigil. The event was one of several held around the province, including Thunder Bay and London.
Kim Prince (Grey Bruce Injured Workers Group), Frank Inglis (OPSEU)  and Belia Berrocal (IAVGO) led a midday event filled with powerful and heartfelt speeches on injured worker poverty and calls to action for meaningful workers’ compensation reform.  In the opening speech,  Women of Inspiration’s Maryam Nazemi spoke of her own experience after work injury that led her to become an activist for  universal  coverage in a province where a high percentage of the workforce are not covered by workers’ compensation: “I found it shameful, to leave millions without protection…”

To me, it was truly wonderful what was said about it being shameful to leave millions without protection!  After all, what's done to leave people without protection, is evil.

Obviously, that person did good by speaking that way, and feeling that way.

Thinking about being good, made me think of Hebrews 13:16, "But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.".

Amen!  But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.

Yes, that person did good and communicated well to help others.  For this, God was happy!

When God is happy, He blesses people.

For this, I'm thankful.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
