Service

I bought a new tee shirt the other day, and wore it this past weekend. I proudly stand behind the slogans shown on the shirt, and am not ashamed to say that I served in the US Military. But that's not the only service we should think about. Let me hasten to say that this past holiday, Labor Day, was about the service rendered by many others.

I thought about those who were working while others of us were taking a long holiday. I considered the personnel who made possible our shopping for groceries, clothing, hardware, and so many other items. I thought about the medical personnel who were working during this holiday time. The more I thought about it, the longer my list became. Unfortunately, we've come to take this service for granted--even on Labor Day.

So, if you enjoyed some time off this past holiday weekend, please join me in saying "Thank you" to everyone who was working during our "time off." We appreciate your service.
