Happy Labor Day

I used to get Memorial Day and Labor Day confused. Somehow, I think I finally have them straight in my head. It only took 56 years.

Today we celebrate American workers. It also marks the official end of summer. It is a creation of the labor movement. We can thank Peter J. McGuire, a carpenter and labor union leader. He thought American workers should be honored with their own day in 1882. Congress made it a national holiday in 1894.

Today, we honor those who work. Thank you! This year it seems especially meaningful as so many are still without employment. Yet we have essential workers who kept going in the midst of this pandemic. Facing a virus that could kill them. This year I salute you.

Love, Peace and Light! Rita
