It’s that time of year again. Most, if not all of the summer vacations are over. The kids are back in school. While summer itself continues on for yet a little while longer, summer for most people is officially over.
It’s Labor Day.
Let’s not only make today about drinking beer, eating hot dogs, and basking in the hot summer sun, let’s take a really quick moment to think about Labor.
It’s Men that have created our society, our civilization. It’s the toil and sweat of Men that have made our dreams so far into reality.
It’s Man’s Labor that has given us our greatest innovations, our greatest technologies.
It’s Men that have advanced us to where we are as a people.
It’ll be Men that put us on Mars and other planets in our universe.
It’ll be Men that solve the mysteries of the depths of our oceans and of our planet itself.
Because that’s what Men do.
We Men are the idealists, the dreamers, the thinkers, the innovators, the romantics, and the problem solvers.
Labor Day to me is a celebration. It’s a celebration of what Men has created and will create in the future. It’s a celebration of where we have come from, where we are today, and where we will be tomorrow.
I give and say my thanks to my fellow Men of the past, the present, and the Men of the future. Here’s to many more to come.
The present is good and the future looks bright.
Cheers to you, my fellow Men.
As a side note:
If you find yourself in jail for doing something that got you there, realize that you’ll be there until tomorrow. The judge is off today celebrating too.
