Where would we be without truckers

Posted

We have just celebrated Memorial Day and paying tribute while giving thanks to what our military has done for us…and to honor the men and women who have died while serving our country.

While doing my daily Facebook reading I came across the following which reminds us what other folks are doing and how often we forget to thank them.

Just think about this.

If you're wearing it, cleaning with it, eating it, drinking it, driving it, or sleeping on it…then we should be thanking a driver for bringing it.

How often do you thank a truck driver? These drivers also deserve our nations appreciation for stepping up and taking on a huge task of helping to keep everything moving during this pandemic.

All our truckers have helped during this crisis and they got the job done despite traffic and safety challenges that confront them on a daily basis.

We would like to see bumper stickers that say, “if you got dressed, ate breakfast and read your newspaper today…thank a truck driver,” because chances are that everything in our house and in the kitchen came to us by truck.

Trucking is a demanding job as many truckers live, eat and sleep in their trucks when they are on the road.

Truckers deliver to us while not having the luxury of seeing their families at the end of the workday. They take time away from their loved ones to fulfill their truck driving duties…all of which keeps our country moving forward.

We thank all truckers…without their dedication things would not be the same.

Blessed and Happy Trails to you.
