I am sure most of you know that I spend a lot of time online. Sometimes I believe my husband forgets I am here. We are in the same room, but I am usually so engrossed in what I am doing online that he says I don’t even hear him when he talks.
In all of this time I am online, some of my time is spent on Facebook. And if you are on Facebook, you know that Facebook is rife with all the things in the world people are outraged with and other causes they seek to get attention for. From Chick-Fil-A to abused animals to injustices across the realm. I am not saying some of these causes are not important, but I also want to know where are the outraged posts about what is being done to dismantle your livelihood?
There are a few people who work very hard at trying to get the truth out there about what is happening to the USPS, but I don’t see many every day working postal workers showing their outrage for the dismantling of the USPS..
Have you decided that we cannot win? Have you given up? Do you feel helpless? How many have taken the time to tell your Congressional representatives how you feel? How many of you spread the truth of the USPS to dispel the lies being spread by others? Do you think your job is safe no matter what? How many of you realize that who you vote for affects the USPS and your job? How many of you know how your representative thinks the USPS should be “fixed”? Have you taken the time to read their website to find out if they have an opinion? WHERE IS YOUR OUTRAGE for the dismantling of the USPS as we know it?
It is past time that we all become OUTRAGED by what is being done, but I am not seeing the outrage I have seen with other issues. While Chick-Fil-A and abused animals are important, the dismantling of YOUR LIVELIHOOD should be just as important! Tell your non postal friends the TRUTH! Tell your postal friends that don’t know the truth. If we don’t do it, nobody will. We certainly can’t depend on the media or Congress to do it. If not US, then WHO?
We all seem to act like we are outside looking in. We are right in the middle of it, and what happens to the USPS, HAPPENS TO US!
