On Labor Day in America, I remember those who work to care for themselves and their families and who through their efforts, helped build and sustain this country. I pray for those who want to work and can’t find employment. I believe that everyone who wants to work ought to be given the opportunity to do so.

“No work is insignificant. All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.” — Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
