I want to wish all of you a safe and happy Labor Day! It looks like it is shaping up to be a rainy weekend, but hopefully you will all find a way to have some fun.
In between the cookouts and ballgames, remember that this holiday weekend is a time to celebrate and appreciate the toils and triumphs of The Working Man.
Ours is a land of brick, stone and steel. Our schools, skyscrapers and sewers weren't built by Ivy League professors. They were forged from the earth by men and women with calloused hands and aching backs. People who pump concrete and drive bulldozers. People who use shovels and hammers. People who drive delivery trucks and work on assembly lines. People who wait tables, wash dishes and pick up the garbage. These and so many more are the people to whom we owe tremendous gratitude. This is a time to reflect on their contributions and their sacrifices.
So to all of you who do so much with so little thanks, let me simply say "Thank you."
Have a great weekend!
