The People of this Country Have Shown Time and Time Again...
It’s the day after Memorial Day and I hope you and your family and friends had great one to remember.
Here in northeast Ohio the weather has been beautiful and our Cleveland Cavaliers are heading off to their second straight chance for a NBA Championship, so you might say for us it couldn’t get much better.
Memorial Day is one of those holidays that should make all of us proud. It’s a day where we remember those who have served in the military, those who have been injured, and of course, those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to provide us the life and freedoms we often take for granted.
We live in what I believe is the greatest nation in the world. One that is not perfect by any means, but one that provides each of us more opportunity than anywhere else in the world. The people of this country have shown time and time again that when defending this country and put up against what looks to be insurmountable odds, we will put our differences aside and pull together and do whatever it takes to come out on top.
When it comes to America’s workforce I often see the same thing. Men and women working together to get the job done, meeting deadlines and getting the job in under budget. That is something we all can also be proud of.
But unlike the military who often have to put themselves in harm’s ways to get the job done, that is not something we ask of America’s workforce. In fact, we should always expect the complete opposite.
That’s right - we should expect our workforce to get the job done without any accidents and without anyone making the ultimate sacrifice. Each of us should do our part to make that happen.
We all need to make an effort to work safe each and every workday and we also need to help make sure our fellow workers make good decisions when it comes to workplace safety.
Our country has been built on each and everyone one of us working together to make it happen. Take some time this week to make sure you and those working with you go home at the end of the day in the same condition you came to work.
