April 28: Workers’ Memorial Day

Old_timer_structural_worker2Workers’ Memorial Day is held every April 28 to remember people killed or injured through accidents at work and to work towards making sure it doesn’t happen again. The holiday began in Canada, on the anniversary of the Workers Compensation Act, and the phrase “Remember the dead — Fight for the living” is a common slogan for this holiday.

“Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men”

Colossians 3:23

April 28 is also Great Poetry Reading Day! I’m not sure if the day is great, the poetry great, or the reading great. Maybe it’s all three! However you figure it, I still like poetry (at least, some poetry).
