The team here at Diesel Driving School love our business, we get a real kick from training people and helping them achieve their goals and begin that journey to a successful career. Is there anything better than helping someone improve or change their lives? We don’t think so, and that is why Labor Day is a great time to just stop for a minute and think about those that pioneered the way for us to enjoy everything we are blessed with today.
Labor Day is, of course, the holiday that pays tribute to the American worker, and it has been an official holiday since 1894. But while some think of it simply as the end of summer, we like to take a look around at this great nation of ours and think about those who came before us and laid the foundations for America we enjoy. It is very easy to take it all for granted, but so many sacrificed a lot to build a country we can all be proud of.
When we think of our country, it is easy to look at the amazing achievements through our history, when Armstrong walked on the Moon, the incredible sacrifice of our brave military when the world needed us to lead and so many more, but really, the story of America is the story of the workers. From the industrial might that powered the fight in the 1940’s, the surge of growth we enjoyed in the 1950’s and beyond, even the people who did the heavy lifting for the Apollo missions, it is the working people of the country who have been there contributing to it all.
From the Empire State Building to the Golden Gate Bridge, construction workers have created astonishing buildings and engineering works that are admired around the world, and that is something we should all be proud of. Our history and the life we enjoy today is built on the hard work of all those who came before us, we have admired what they did, and learned from how they did it, and on Labor Day, we should remember how lucky we are to be Americans who get to continue that legacy.
Here at Diesel Driving School, we are proud to be part of that legacy, to say we train the next generation of transportation leaders who will help shape this country in the future. It is our privilege and honor to be a part of this amazing country and in a small part, help it to continue to succeed. This year don’t just think about it being the end of Summer, Labor Day is about the country we live in, the country we are proud of, and the people who have made it great. The American worker.
