Labor-1895 to Today

According to wikipedia, Labor Day is "a celebration of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country.
But really, we just party.
Hey, beats being in school.

And it beats working.

Thanks to the men, women, and children from the 1895 Pullman Railroad Strike. We got today off because of them.
Happy Labor Day everyone!

But you're not looking at this on Labor Day, are you, because Internet traffic slows down on weekends and holidays? You're looking at this three months in the future. Maybe you're at work. Or school.
Oh well. Happy Labor Day to me.

  1. I'm reading this on Labor Day!

    So in Utah, school started already? In NY school starts next week. (For me, it starts Thursday. I don't know about other homeschoolers. Some of them do school year round. And some do this weird thibg called unschooling.)

    Happy Labor Day!!!
