Tribute to the Laborers


Thank you very much,

Our laborers, one and all.

You help the nation,

As you answer every call.

By your toil and sweat,

You provide our freedom here.

Made our country great,

The rights we all hold so dear.

This day signifies,

How we all respect your aid.

Throughout our history,

The important role you've played.

May God bless you each,

For the great heights, we do reach.

We count lucky stars,

Your work ethic you do teach.

I join you in saying thanks. So many are not recognized for their valuable service. Truth is, we all have a part to play in maintaining the dignity of our native land.

Like you, my friend, I learned a work ethic from my parents. There is no way "lazy" is allowed into my vocabulary. Their memory simply won't allow it. :)
