It is now September, following a family friendly warm summer. The signs-back to school shopping, last minute vacation, if lucky, a family labor day gathering. But now-back to school, a new year of friends, yet un-known, new ideas and experiences and holding fast to family ties and memories. In our own way we are thankful for these times and memories that shape who we are becoming.
Labor Day dates in America from the late 1800’s It started with an idea and continued, state by state. Initially the intent was to distinguished between the upper-class and the working class. Today it is a national holiday for all families regardless of “class”. It honors human efforts in building, creating,producing, repairing and a good work ethic. It is essential to family and society. It is what saves and repairs community and country.
Two things I leave you with. Human effort (labor) requires both brain and brawn. It is kind and nurturing. Always respect it at home and look for it in both parent and child. Your family, community and our society can not survive without it.
