“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets as a Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”
“No work is insignificant. All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.”
–Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
This quote tells us all to respect and honor hard work no matter the job. All manner of hard work requires a strong work ethic and the commitment to do something to the best of your ability. We all rely on each other in some way. It is important to teach our children and remind ourselves that no job is too small.
Hard work is the common thread that binds our society together. Please remember to acknowledge and honor all the people around you who are working hard everyday.
