Work being done

This weekend those of us in the United States will be celebrating Labor Day weekend. Labor Day was, originally, a celebration and showcase of the workers of labor organizations. Throughout the years Labor Day, celebrated on the first Monday of September each year, has taken on the more symbolic meaning of a day of rest and the end of Summer.

As each of us go out to rest and relax with our families this weekend, I thought it would be appropriate to send us off with a few words from our patriarch. No, not Lou Mongello, Walt Disney, “In order to make good in your chosen task, it is important to have someone you want to do it for. The greatest moments in life are not concerned with selfish achievements but rather with the things we do for the people we love and esteem, and whose respect we need.
