Happy Labor Day to everyone!
To those of you who worked today, you are remembered for the labors that you do.
To those who were able to enjoy the day off, I hope you have been able to reflect and recharge on this day that honors the contribution that you make.
We were reminded at mass yesterday to also pray for those that are out of work and looking for work. We honor you as well. It takes a great deal of strength and persistence to be out of work and look for work. We pray for you and honor you.
That statement by our pastor at mass reminded me why I do this blog. I promote making and buying products that are made in the USA. At the heart of it, though, I am actually promoting employing our fellow community members who would like to be honored for the work they do, not the work they desire to have.
Have a happy and safe holiday!
