Happy Thanksgiving from the NH Labor News
I would like to take a moment to say Happy Thanksgiving to all of you. Hopefully you are enjoying the holiday with your friends and family – the way it should be — not standing in line for some super sale deals. Then again if you are a fan of the NHLN you are probably reading this at home.
I would like to share a few things I am thankful for:
1) I am thankful for all of YOU!!! I am thankful for all of the fans and followers that I have become friends with over the last few years. You are the greatest fans I could ever ask for. Every one of you is different and brings a different perspective to the NHLN. Your comments help me shape future posts and improve our message. Without your help our message would evaporate into the social media abyss. If you keep commenting and sharing my posts, I will keep writing them.
(Shameless self-promotion, if you have not subscribed to the blog click here.)
2) I am thankful for all of those people who are working to keep us safe this Thanksgiving. The unsung heroes who year after year forgo their own holiday celebration to be on the job.
These are our police, firefighters. Your dedication to the public, keeps us safe day and night.
We need to give a special thanks to the doctors, nurses, and hospital workers. They are always there when we need them the most. Even on Thanksgiving.
Let’s not forget those men and women who work for the water and power companies that ensure that we have electricity so your mom can burn the rolls like she does every year.
I would also like to say thank you to all those people who work in the aviation industry. The days around Thanksgiving are the busiest travel days of the year. Pilots, Air Traffic Controllers, and gate agents put up with disgruntled passengers and extra air traffic to help people get home for Thanksgiving. (Read the Washington Post editorial Thanking air traffic controllers.)
This is not an all-inclusive list of dedicated workers who year after year have to work over the holidays. Thank you to all of you! If I did not mention you specifically, it is only because there are too many to name.
3) I would like to thank my union brothers and sisters who encouraged me to stick with this blog, and to keep fighting the good fight. Great leadership spawns great leaders!
4) Lastly I would like to say a very special thank you to my wife and family. This blog takes a lot of my free time and my wife has been my biggest supporter. I know she is probably tired of hearing me talk about it, but she is always there to listen. She listens when I vent about my problems and she is there to celebrate with me when one of my posts goes viral.
I could not do this with out her continual support.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you and keep sharing, liking, and most importantly keep talking. Together we can continue to share our message of labor and progress.
