LOOK Around US/ Some were Faceless/ Heroes have SUDDENLY emerged/ While we may be Bored THEY SERVE.

Remember the words of Dr King, “ALL LABOR HAS DIGNITY.” While most of us are resting at home and maybe complaining about boredom THINK HARD. Where would we be without those nurses, doctors, cops, fireman, truck drivers, store clerks, delivery people, cleaning people, nursing home workers, food suppliers and food processing workers, and many many more, that in the past we may have barely noticed. or even thought about.
Ask yourself next time that sanitation worker comes by to collect your garbage — where would we be if they didn’t show up? Knee deep in our own garbage, that’s where. A lesson I learned a few year back when the New York Sanitation workers went out on strike, or a few years before that when the Transit workers struck New York. I have honestly never look at those people the same way again. We have to ask ourselves where the hell would our lives be without them? Dr Kings PROPHETIC WORDS “ALL LABOR HAS DIGNITY” has shown that we all have a face. no matter our calling in life, it takes all of us to survive. Those mostly invisible men and women have proven him right.
From this day forward let’s look each other straight on, right in the eyes, NOT down. These folks are risking and giving their lives.We owe them to never forget.
They didn’t go off to a far away land to serve us and our country. They stayed among us and served, and are fighting an unseen and indiscriminate killer, and yet they are on the job, while most of us are staying out of harms way because of them.
Remember this quote, “I SLEPT AND DREAMED THAT LIFE WAS BEAUTY, I WOKE AND FOUND THAT LIFE WAS DUTY.” God bless all of you who before this awakening, probably went unnoticed. A GRATEFUL NATION HAS TURNED IT’S EYES ON YOU. Eyes that will never forget.
