Can you imagine a day that honors the fact that you are a working person? That covers a very broad spectrum which is most significant about the Labor Day Holiday on the first Monday in September. The U.S. Federal Government recognizes the fact that an impressive workforce has contributed to its economic growth and financial prosperity. In some instances, the working population has made personal sacrifices to maintain their nation’s strong pecuniary status.
You are retired, but not expired. You will always have the working spirit as you keep busy creating new opportunities to enjoy life. You can now stand back and appreciate with more sincerity your working friends who continue to be about the business of making a contribution to society’s upward mobility starting with strong work ethics.
Labor Day weekend in Memphis will be a busy one. You and your friend,Gwen, have a close friend, Katie, flying in town from California. The three of you are looking forward to a fun filled reunion. The main events in town include the Delta Fair & Music Festival, Labor Day Bracket Brash & Monster Truck Mania, Stone Soul Picnic, Tiger’s Football Home Game and Memphis Music & Heritage Festival. Your best friend, Max, is attending a family reunion event which is a commonly held gathering during this three day weekend.
You feel the month of September is getting off to a good start. You will not be hitting the road. There is too much going on as you anticipate the arrival of a dear friend. Your energy level is up as you think about exciting things to enjoy. A check of the weather forecast was somewhat disappointing. However, as long as you are hanging with your girlfriends everything will still be fine and dandy. You will also focus on the importance of the Labor Day Holiday. It is your hope that everyone who is not going to work, keep in mind the many workers who have jobs that require continuous staff coverage. The world of work is a 24/7 operation.
Modern technology is advancing at a rapid pace. Hopefully, the least desirable forms of work will no longer require human hands. Work in and of itself is meaningful, but those who can honestly say they enjoy the work that they do are special. Work at its core should be fun and enjoyable.
You proudly salute the American work force!
