MY THOUGHTS

WHAT IF THE POST OFFICE WAS GONE

Posted on September 10, 2011 at 12:05 AM

I was getting ready for my day early one morning. I decided to turn on the tv , which i rarely do, but something said lets see what's going on in the world. I turned it on and kinda forgot about it and started to iron and pick out what i wanted to wear. Somewhere in the middle of many things that I engage in early in the mornings in the background I heard the news reporter say that we may not have the option of shipping things via the postal service anymore. I was probably pressed for time, which isn't unusual in my case, but I don't remember watching the whole segment. The next day I looked up the story on the news channel's website. I read more in detail obviously this is a way more serious situation that we're facing than I thought. Okay, so this is such a big deal that the Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe is reaching out to congress for help. There is a law that prohibits layoffs for the postal service employees. He is so desperate he is reaching out to congress in hopes of getting this law nullified so that he can lay off over 100,000 people. If that isn't bad enough the postal service were unable to pay out 5.5 billion dollars of retiree health care payments last month. I was beyond moved by what I reading that's what compelled me to write this post. I wanted to get involved some how. So what I've decided to do is create a twitition. If you'd like to get involved sign up via twitter and vow to ship out more packages as often as possible. Maybe think of the little things. I know I have a granny that lives in another state that I usually don't write, but she is old fashion so she ships often. As of today I @Yes_ImLesha vow that I am going to ship something as often as possible. Sign the Twitition
