Happy Labor Day

Never forget the laborers.
In 1894, Labor Day became an official holiday. Today, I wish you all a Happy Labor Day, and know it, that your work and the working people before you, is not forgotten.

The sweat of a nation being built didn't occur in the mighty halls of suit wearing men, nor was it built with the hands of those wearing perfumed wigs. The nation was transformed by calloused hands of men, and sore backs of women.... The regular folk.

Those people who wake in the morning, or go out at at night to produce what a nation needs. The men who dug coal until their lungs grew black, the nurses charged with making illness manageable for those who suffer, and the family of those ill.

The teachers who take sheaves of papers home to check them, so they might be able to help that student who is falling behind the others. Those who shovel, those who keep things mechanically fit, so that a town may run. There is no meniality in labor.

The grocery clerk, the bagger, and the person who takes the time to help get them in someone's car. The hardworking farmer. Those who serve a nation in time of need. Smell the sweat, America. Do not forget those who labor. For, it is the labor from the men and women that took a nation from birth to a much loftier height.

So, the next time remember, the smallest act of labor deserves a thank-you. Your appreciation may be all they hear.
