For Victims of the Tornadoes & A Wake-Up Call to All

By
Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509

God Bless the rescue people and the people who lived and died because of the recent tornadoes. There is no greater possession on earth than human life. Wage earners are the bread-winners of society. They are the heart and soul of what makes great cities, states, people, and homes.

 

God Bless the working class, the National Guard, veterans, the people who do assembly work, manual labor, factory workers, such as those who work in manufacturing making Christmas candles, administrative work, volunteer support, hospitals workers, those in soup kitchens, kitchens inside and outside of people’s homes, our good doctors, druggists, physiologists helping others cope with loss, mental illness, orphans, autistic spectrum disorders, people who train, individuals on the ground and in the air providing services, our police, firefighters, volunteers, first responders, pilots, flight attendants, those who drive for a living to get the products and services to where they need to be on time to make people happy by delivering, producing, and making day-to-day necessities for household consumption, holiday gifts, products, and materials to the people who ordered material goods for building construction, gifts to be opened on holidays, birthdays, special events, and for families and autonomous people who are just working or saved money their whole lives just to make ends meet, God bless you one and all. To the working class people and their families who depend on them, I commend you for not sitting around doing nothing but waiting and collecting what you don’t rightfully deserve. 

 

To the people who have to stand on their feet and have to sit in uncomfortable chairs ergonomically incorrect, all that are working hard, punching clocks, following orders for meager wages, seniors stuck in nursing homes without families, employees who are hired to clean toilets, floors, pots and pans, and to the unloved and forgotten, God bless all of you. To all those who tragically lost loved ones or have missing loved ones, destruction of homes, transportation, displaced people without power, water, and basic necessities may there be a glimmer of hope that we can become a “love thy neighbors as thyself,” society and those who suffer can rise up with dignity, self-respect, and the means to get through another day and survive.

 

Something has to awaken in each of us that living in a world of lies, layered in lies without morality or good consciousness does not serve the working people or future generations. The uneasiness, the malaise of our current affairs is not part of the American dream. Throughout history, it has been the working class who has built, rebuilt, and provided support to one another by taking on commitment and responsibilities because the truth is, people’s hearts, minds, bodies and soul matter. For those who lived and died under the rubbles by tornados, pray with me ---Patricia Feager

Patricia the recent tornadoes are a load wake-up call of how quickly the physical possessions we have can be taken away in a blink of an eye, and our lives turned upside down.

Good afternoon Patricia.

All those natural disasters have a huge perspective lesson, and thank goodness for all the responders.  A

Ron and Alexandra Seigel - There are many special people in this world and first responders are heroes for everyday people. Responders brings us to tears. They are strong and brave.

Patricia, it broke my heart to read how many people died and then don't get me started Amazon's owner was throwing a party??? really I would have posponed the party and would have reached out to the families of the employees who lost loved ones...but that is just me...Endre

Endre Barath, Jr. - I never shopped Amazon and an incident like this re-enforces why my decision is final. My heart goes out to the unfortunate who can never be replaced, their loved ones, or friends. Unlike the big guy you mentioned, life doesn't go on - his people will be replaced, he has enough insuranace money to pay out claims and it's not going to hurt his bottom line a bit. His defintion of celebration for life is not like others. For the wage-workers and the people I mentioned in my post, life is not like that. Many have to work. Some want to work because for them and for volunteers, it is the right thing to do. By the way, there are people in Dallas, who are still waiting for claims to be paid for their losses as a result of the tornado in October 2019. People I know personally are suffering through no fault of their own because of the October 2019 tornado. To this day, many neighborhood homes are still covered in tarps and many people lost their homes because insurance claims were never paid.

Hello Patricia - everyday life often shows us the importance of a wake-up call although we some may eventually take notice when the disaster is of epic proportions.  And then there are many who miss the message.

Michael Jacobs - Yes! Throughout our life we do get wake-up calls. Some will answer the call; others will not. There seems to be a shortage of humility and a lot of greed. Sometimes you have to wonder, in the end, the very end, who hurts more? Will it be the people who suffered the most? Or those who heard the call but ignored it or refused to listen?

I appreciate your thoughts but I am also wondering if there are more answers that could be a part of your reply along with the bigger picture.  It's a beginning, that's for sure.  

Dec 13, 2021 05:05 AM
Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP

Michael Jacobs - Within every big picture, there seems to be wider pictures with deeper issues and meanings. One has to wonder, do questions lead to answers or do answers lead to endless questions? Life for the working class is always a self-balancing act. Could it be that enough is never enough?

What a touching post.

 

There are so many people in many walks of life who show up to assist those in times like these. And there are so many people whose lives just ended, or whose path now needs to be redrawn as they deal with the loss of family members and/or all they worked for.

 

Mother Nature can strike at any time with tornados, hurricanes, fires, floods and more. Life is truly tenuous.

Kat Palmiotti - To be grateful for life itself is so much more than a turkey, ham, or steak & lobster dinner. End of life, whether it is because of the weather or not is so hard to accept. As I heard at my uncle’s funeral services, you’ll never find a U-Haul following a funeral procession. Now, when I think back to when I was younger, healthier, and devoted to my previous job, working 80 hours a week and being too tired to travel to be with family for holidays seems so selfish and wrong. Time and people are irreplaceable.

It is always so sad to hear about these king of things and I am glad that I live in an area that doesn't experience many natural disasters but anything could happen.

Brian England - never say, it couldn't happen. Tragedy happens anywhere, anytime, and any place. My hope is that a wide-range of readers will read this and find their own reflections and insights helpful to reframe their own personal priorities.

Good morning, Patricia... events like this one of the past weekend serve to remind all of us how drastically our lives can change in the blink of an eye. I cannot imagine what these people are going through mentally, emotionally, and physically.

Dec 13, 2021 06:10 AM
Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP

Nina Hollander, Broker - Living by the golden rule, saying I love you to loved ones, not holding grudges, being kind, living with integrity are virtues of moral excellence. The physical, mental, emotional, and financial loss to people on earth is painful and hard. Psychological trauma, feelings, and aspects for those who live there, had families in these communities, did live there once upon a time, or those that travel through the path of the tornadoes may never go away. FYI... this is path I took when I drove from my home in IL to TX when I moved here. The only difference is, I don't have emotional attachment to loved ones on that path but it doesn't mean I will never forget them.

Good Monday morning, Patricia.

Those of us living in comfortable and safe homes have good reasons to be thankful.

Dec 13, 2021 07:06 AM
Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP

Roy Kelley - Amen! There are many things we take for granted, a pillow, bed, warm blanket, a switch to turn on or off the furnace or air conditioning, a faucet to wash our hands or take a shower or bath, a roof over our heads, and the list goes on.

It seems like it's getting harder and harder to find a safe part of the country where you can be free from natural disasters, power and water failures, and general civil unrest.

Dec 17, 2021 02:31 PM
Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP

Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089 - isn't that the truth! As a child, I was aware of only one country that had an overpopulation and restrictions on how many children could be born, per family. Now it seems as if the globe is imploding with people and natural disasters that bring so much hardship to so many people. And the worst is the civil disobedience without regard to laws and human life.
