Monday is Labor Day, a day celebrating the social and economic achievements of American workers. This year has seen so many American workers struggle, whether the struggle is figuring out how to teach remotely, work remotely, not working at all, or working in areas that have had their ability to prosper so drastically affected by shut-downs and limits on business operations. While many are struggling, it is the American worker that will propel us out of the current economic situation and bring strength, prosperity and well-being back to our country. So, I am going to celebrate all the American workers from the past, and, pray for those still working, and those anxiously waiting to get back to work, as I rest up this Labor Day holiday
