I got this earlier in the weekend, but while enjoying my day off with a jog wearing my Teamsters T-Shirt from Yearly Kos 2007, I thought about it again:

Labor Day has special meaning to my family as we celebrate and recognize the achievements and progress of working families in this country.  The labor movement helped my parents make investments in me as a child that provided a foundation for future successes.  In fact, those investments made it possible for me to be the first person in my family to go to and graduate from college.  Stories like this are common in working families throughout the country, and Labor Day is an important time to recognize those stories and the achievements of working families.

Feel free to tell your story in comments.
