Now that Hurricane Earl is out of the Southeast’s path check your calendar people because Labor Day is here. Go ahead with those plans full speed ahead and enjoy your American holiday. With all the stress and worry about Earl it’s no wonder holiday plans were put on hold, but no worries, Labor Day weekend is finally here and hurricane free for the Southeast American. Labor Day celebrates all the hard working Americans that keep this country going.
Traditionally Labor Day is supposed to be a day for rest, parties and the marking of the end of Summer for the average American. It’s also a big day for sports fans as many people will enjoy this holiday watching the start of the NFL and college football seasons.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, Labor Day was created because of the mistreatment of American workers back in 1882. The American worker celebrates this special day because it is through the hard work and labor of the people that this great country has achieved so much.
Labor Day in America portrays the American spirit of strength, leadership and courage of the working people. Let all people remember the reason we are celebrating this holiday and remember that Labor Day is here because of the working people who stood up for workers rights over a hundred years ago.
For those who have no plans, perhaps keeping an eye on the American people up north will help fill your Labor Day with ideas for lending a hand to people who need it. Hurricane Earl is a large powerful storm and will cause damage where ever it makes landfall. So keep your eyes, hearts, and wallets open in case people up north need our help.
Watching Hurricane Earl pass by the Southeast as everyone put their holiday plans on hold, can make you realize how little power people have over mother nature. It also helps us to prioritize and remember what is really important in our lives, people. Our families and the people we care about are so important and hopefully are celebrating Labor Day with you.
So if you have found prosperity recently and have been one of the lucky employed workers of America, remember those this holiday who are not so lucky or who are hurting financially. One American at a time can help strengthen our country by lending a helpful hand to people who are in need of a job. So check your calendar and your wallets people because Labor Day is here and it is our American duty to help rebuild and strengthen the American workforce one person at a time.
