Thoughts On Labor Day about Labor

Hello Again Readers,

Today, as a nation, we celebrate the American Worker. Fair enough - those who fashioned this country from earth and stone and iron with their sweat and youth and their waking hours deserve a Big Thank You. We have come a long way as a society towards our goal of a true democracy. It is important to use our eyes and our heads to keep focused on what is truly going on around us. The profit from our labors often flows unevenly into odd pockets of those who set unseen at the table of our lives. A TRUE, clear, view of reality can be found in the eyes of those working today, on Labor Day. Resist the temptation to look away, do you see fear of tomorrow? Do you see hope against all odds, or do you just see the tired and the doomed? Change starts with you. Im not suggesting that you give healthy scamming pan handlers a dime, but the next time you see a street musician or car wash attendant or the like working take a moment and drop some change in their hat!

  1. Thanks for linking the pictures to the bigger ones. I was wanting to see the bigger map of where you were in Baja that's in the post below but it just opens a tiny map. Hoping you do the big picture link in the future. Thanks again.
