We Remember

     A message sent yesterday:

From: ^Commissioner Broadcast Sent: Tuesday, April 18, 2017 2:01 PM Subject: Oklahoma City Bombing, Remembering Those Affected

A Message to All SSA and DDS Employees

Subject: Oklahoma City Bombing, Remembering Those Affected

Tomorrow we commemorate the 168 Oklahomans who died on April 19, 1995, when a bomb destroyed the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. 
The nation suffered a great loss with this act of terrorism and we experienced our own personal sorrow with 16 Social Security employees being among the fatalities.  Today, the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum stands where the Murrah Building once stood.  The museum chronicles the journey of loss, resilience, justice, and hope – something we can all build from and remember. 
Please join me tomorrow in a moment of silence at 9:02 a.m., to remember those lost and their loved ones.
Nancy A. Berryhill
Acting Commissioner

Here's to creating A Memorial that should be acknowledged for those who died waiting for their SSA/Medicare benefits.

Let not their lose be in vain!! by cleaning house and then drain the swamp of filthy racism and anti-foreigners' sentiments from within an agency that they sacrificed to serve. Stop the shameful disenfranchisement and harassment and of Muslims, Native Americans and Asian-American employees!!!!

Please do not forget the LGBT and the disabled employees!! They experience no less discrimination each day by their peers, most of whom are working more than 20+

The three comments above are an embarrassment.

Embarrassment is so tame when compared to prejudice and discrimination against any smaller group of minority because we feel that we can. God bless those souls who died as heroes in Oklahoma!!
