Surrounded

Standard

They say you define your future

Fate isn’t always in control

One who works towards

Their goal

Will be rewarded

For success in life

Isn’t handed on a platter

But through your determination

Whether you believe in nature

Or nurturing your talents

It really is who you know

That gives you the freedom

In the support of your future

And more support

Only then success

And wellness

Are embodied

Labor?

Standard

It is not a labor

To do activities you love

Relishing the enjoyment of hobbies

Working with excitement

Cleaning with song

All those events

Were never laborious

Because you choose

To make them

Bountiful of smiles

-Jennie Nawrocki

What is it?

Standard

In this world where more and more people have been brought up in broken homes and dysfunctional families. The days of ignoring a family member at family functions just doesn’t happen. Instead families are permanently separated by anger that was never resolved. There is no support system for these people, they live on their own, alone. This is hugely different from the past when the large farm families stayed close to mind the crop. You had a support system. While the rich in the city didn’t have to rely on family because they knew they could pay for assistance when needed. But the majority of people who don’t make tons of money or have families to support them are left alone. If they get sick or tragedy happens, they have nothing, no means, no way to make a living, not even one person to bring them something to eat or drink when they themselves can’t get out of bed. They have no extra funds or collateral support to get a loan, they don’t even have money to acquire new skills to improve their living situation. They have nothing. These are not stupid or bad people, they just don’t have a support system, they are without family or friends. So when the America lost thousands of people during the depression we created a supportive government to make sure these people had an extended family social security and Medicare or Medicaid. I heard a story where FDR told people we will pay you to turn over the brick and stones in the road just to give you a job. Our government taxes and other means revenue came from our extended family, a government for the people and by the people. Every penny we put into the government was an investment into our own future whether from drought, fire, flood, tornado, hurricane or any other state of emergency. Include also some dodo who wasn’t paying attention when answering a text on his phone and said or did the wrong thing. Accidents happen, natural disasters happen but we had a government which we supported indirectly and directly. Now I hear people want to stop supporting welfare because they are crappy people, end funding to Social Security because you should have saved for retirement and blah, blah, blah. Why does something have to affect you directly before you do something. Big smoke coming from factories near New York contributed to acid rain how were we not to know this may happen. Let me tell you if you had to make a regulation that the smoke was bad inside the building to breathe then it probably isn’t good for you to breathe it outside either in fact it became worse it became acid rain. But the government for the people and by the people came in and said we will make you healthy again. Those New Yorkers who worked hard had families and were doing well lost everything because they became sick. So if you at all think the government support system called welfare is just for a messed up crack head, think again. That “welfare” recipient is still saving millionaires from Wall Street to minimum wage workers from the World Trade Center after the 9/11 terrorist attack. Giving support to someone who is affected by disaster is not a handout, just ask a veteran firefighter. These are people who trusted in their taxes they paid through gainful employment needing a return on their investment. Everybody at some point needs the government, that is why we have it so if you congress person are thinking you are giving handouts as welfare think of all the donations you were given to get into office. Support and or help is not a handout, even from the government.
