Today is Labor Day, the semi-official last day of summer. As you enjoy the last day of this long weekend, think of the people for whom Labor Day is just another day. People will be at work today in grocery stores, pharmacies, department stores, service stations, and dozens of other businesses we take for granted. Give thanks for their efforts.
My own thoughts turn to health care workers, who are there for us whenever we need them, regardless of the calendar. I've put in my share of hours working or being on call on holidays, and I'd like to express my appreciation to my colleagues in the profession who are working today. Thanks for your service.
