Happy Labor Day to all Purposeful Women around the globe. Today is a day set aside in the US to recognize those that labor in our country; in factories, schools, utilities, military, hospitals, offices, communities and too many more places to mention.
From President Obama’s Labor Day proclamation:
On September 5, 1882, in what is thought to be the first Labor Day event, thousands of working Americans gathered to march in a New York City parade. In the 131 years since, America has called on our workers time and again — to raise and connect our cities; to feed, heal, and educate our Nation; to forge the latest technological revolution. On Labor Day, we celebrate these enduring contributions and honor all the men and women who make up the world’s greatest workforce.
Most likely there are some of you laboring today on this day of rest and recognition. I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you. And here is a little bit of Labor Day fun (?) for your entertainment.
