Power Plant Downsizing Disaster and the Left Behinds

Power Plant Men

The Power Plant Men and Women knew that a major downsizing was going to occur throughout the company on Friday, July 29, 1994.  The upper management had already experienced the preliminary stages of this particular downsizing since it started at the top.  Over a four month period that started with an early retirement, it worked its way down the ranks until the actual Power Plant Men at the plant in North Central Oklahoma were going to be downsized on that one day.

The people that had taken the early retirement (which was available for anyone 50 years and older) had already left a couple of months earlier.  Since the downsizing was being decided from the top down, we soon learned that our Plant Manager Ron Kilman would no longer be a Plant Manager.  He was too young to take the early retirement.  I believe he was 47 at the time.

Est modus in rebus

Ex silentio

Nerostit

Denisa Aricescu

Nerostit

Peste lutul din odaia
Cu tăciuni desprinşi din foc
Am scris peste amintiri
Cu tăcerile din joc!

Nu voiam să mă despart
De cuvintele pe care
Le iubeam şi le dădeam
Soarele din depărtare.

Într-o lume-n care eu
Am lăsat simpla durere
Să nu sufle peste tine,
Te-adormeam c-o mângâiere.

După zile de nesomn
Liniştea o prefiram
Peste gene, doar un strop
De speranţă îl topeam.

Amorţise peste noapte
Un întreg ocean de stele
Mă rugam să te găsesc
Povestindu-mi despre ele.

Cu timpul nu aveam pace
Desfăşa din vise, marea
Valurile mi le lua
Şi-mi lăsa pe buze, sarea.

Din dorinţa unei flori
De a săruta iubire
Singurul parfum cules
Era dulce mulţumire.

Mă temeam din pas în pas,
Şi curajul mă seca
Numai c-o îmbrăţişare
Începeam iar a visa.

Nu ştiam ce-i alinarea
Destinul învălmăşit
Mi-l lăsa pe “te iubesc
Să rămână nerostit.

Gândurile tale…

People are often unreasonable, illogical,
and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, People may accuse you
of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some
false friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank,
people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone
could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness,
they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today,
people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have,
and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.

You see, in the FINAL analysis, 
it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

İnsanlar çoğu kez
akılsız, mantıksız ve
ben merkezli davranırlar
Sen yine de onları affet.

Eğer iyi…
