Today is May Day.

Today is May 1, also known as May Day, also known as International Worker's Day. If you get up today and go to work, good for you. If you get up and look for work, good for you. If you've got kids or family members that depend on you, and you spend today doing what you can to give them what they need, and some of what they want, good for you. 

May Day isn't just for unions, and it certainly isn't a tribute to Communism. It's an annual reminder to America that everyone who wakes up, gets dressed, and pitches in towards the daily effort of keeping this ship afloat should have decent housing, job security, affordable health care, and enough money to eat the food we're meant to eat. There's nothing union vs. non-union, boss vs. worker, Republican vs. Democrat, or Occupy(Insert name here) about it. This is, or should be, fact. 

Remember: no matter which side of the bed you sleep on, we ALL want to enjoy where we live. Lose sight of that and we're doomed.
