“Dia de los Trabajadores” or Labor Day is celebrated on May 1st here in Peru. Our Peruvian friends know what it means to work hard. There are no government systems in place to fall back on if you are unable or decide not to work and very few retirement programs.
At school earlier this week, Abigail’s class did a cute musical number to celebrate and honor all those working hard everyday to get the “little” jobs done.
“Don’t be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.” -Dale Carnegie “There is no substitute for hard work.” -Thomas Edison
