There will be no mail today, and many U.S. workers have a day of rest in honor of Labor Day. Originally, the day was set aside in the 1890s as a reconciliation with the Labor Movement. Now, it is also seen as an end-of-summer holiday. I can remember when the Labor Day weekend truly was the end of summer for school children. We didn't start back to school until the day after Labor Day. How I wish that had been true for my children!
