On This Labor Day – I’m Grateful!

Workplace Diversity

As we prepare to celebrate another Labor Day, I find myself thinking about everything my grandparents instilled in me about work.  I was always reminded that job excellence was the highest form of gratitude I could demonstrate.

As we all know, there was a time when an African-American women like me, could only dream of having a full-time job with benefits and paid holidays.  Of course there are days when I am ready to leave the building and retreat to the comfort of my home, but it does not take me long to realize just how fortunate I am.

I came across a quote from someone whom we all admire that I would like to share.

All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance,
and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
