The men who labored on a rainy
night to build a bridge were no ordinary laborers. They helped us to zip by, and thereby made our lives easier. Often we turn a blind eye towards laborers and workers who toil to make our lives better. On this Labor Day
, let us acknowledge and appreciate their effort.
