Need Your Faith in Humanity Reaffirmed?

Faith in HumanitySometimes I go for days without opening a newspaper. It gets downright depressing reading about all the school shootings, political gridlock and homicides. But every now and then, I come across something that actually reaffirms my faith in humanity. Take a look at “26 Moments That Restored Our Faith In Humanity This Year” and be reminded of why you should still care. Hat tip to my friend, Miriam Rabinovitch.

And here’s something I first read for my high school English class but that has stayed with me ever since. Maybe it will speak to you as well.

“Meditation XVII”

No man is an island,

Entire of itself.

Each is a piece of the continent,

A part of the main.

If a clod be washed away by the sea,

Europe is the less.

As well as if a promontory were.

As well as if a manor of thine own

Or of thine friend’s were.

Each man’s death diminishes me,

For I am involved in mankind.

Therefore, send not to know

For whom the bell tolls,

It tolls for thee.

  • John Donne

Stay safe out there.

    How can I collect SSDI, LTD, and a Pension at the same time. Social security disability says this is OK for me to be collecting a pension and LTD says it’s OK because I qualify for long-term disability. Social Security also says, because I have a pension that that’s money already earned. Information from Social Security is not on paper so far I haven’t received any information paperwork about me receiving or qualifying for LTD for one more year, from August 31, 2017 to August 31, 2018.

    Why is it every time I contacted an attorney no one will take my case because they say I already have a settlement. This is a different when’s it concerns employment law. I am being discriminated against because of a disability under federal and California law. Even though I have a settlement, the original injury was never settle and my company is trying to settle that right now. Right now I am considered terminated the next day retired yet I collect a pension, Social Security disability and I just qualified again for long-term disability. I have been refuse help from many many different attorneys. I believe my case involves LTD CA. law. I’d like to make a complaint to the state of California about a union lawyer whom was referred to collected not once but I believe four times for a case that he brought up in my journey. I have been on LTD since 1991 now my company wants to terminate my employment when. I always have wanted to go back to work someday. I have been given a deadline October 16. I was supposedly terminated, but how can I be terminated from the company when they’re still legally ? When I am still on long-term disability. I need an attorney for two different cases.
    Thank you for your concern
