Here in the US we just had the 3 day Labor Day weekend Holiday which has come to mark the close of Summer and beginning of School days for most of us.
This is my neighbor down the street’s American flag raised on her tallest flagpole (yes,she has a few!) for the rest of the week.
This is a real holiday,not the type made to sell cards and trinkets from companies like Hallmark. Labor Day was forged into a federal holiday only after 30 states had already declared state days of rest from labor and more so due to the Cleveland administration’s wish to settle widespread workers union unrest that had culminated in the deaths of protesting workers at the hands of the US military and US Federal Marshals during the Pullman Strike over the Summer of 1894.The national holiday was to reconcile the people,it was pushed through U.S Congress and into law in a record 6 days after the strike ended.
It has since remained a day of rest,BBQs,picnics and time spent with family and friends.
