As we all know, in Michigan, the summer starts Memorial Day, and ends on Labor Day. Don’t look now, but Labor Day is right around the corner. The summer, which seemed stranger than fiction, is coming to an unofficial end. Despite Covid affecting just about everything this summer, I hope that you were able to find some time to enjoy the nice weather. I know that many of you will be sending your children away to school or college, or “kind of” sending them away. There are a lot of challenges to schooling this year, so I wish you and your families the best this fall.
As we reflect on the true meaning of Labor Day, I think all workers should be proud of their accomplishments this year. I know that I am very proud of my colleagues for their hard work and diligence during this great uncertainty, as they performed spectacularly in the most challenging of times. I know that many of my clients echo the same thoughts about their staff. We should especially recognize the healthcare workers who labored long hours valiantly and put themselves in harm’s way to take care of loved ones and our most vulnerable. They are all heroes who deserve our thoughts and thanks for their critical and lifesaving work.
I wish you and your families a happy and safe Labor Day.
