The laborers -- where would we be without them?

Email News Alerts

It isn't in fashion to celebrate the virtues of those who work hard for a wage, but at one time it apparently was. Otherwise, we wouldn't be celebrating Labor Day this week. 


Let's forget for a moment the present day tendency to emphasize the virtues of wealth and fame.

Who are the people that do the hard work? Where would we be without them? 

My favorite working heroes are nursing home employees. They address human suffering like few others in our midst.
