Labor Day Shout

A  L  O  H  A !
  " Love and work 
are the cornerstones 
of our humanness. "

 “No one 
who does good work 
will ever come 
to a bad end, 
either here
 or in the world to come” 
                      The Bhagavad Gita

Na ke kanaka mahi'ai ka imu o nui. 

"The well-filled oven 
belongs to him 
who tills the soil." 
brings abundance
                   Hawaiian Proverb

" Do not take advantage 
of a hired worker who is
 poor and needy, 
whether like you,
 or a foreigner 
residing in your town. "
        Deuteronomy 24:14


You & me-

All of us work

either for pay,
or because
it is who we are.

Today in the USA
we celebrate Workers
in a time
when $Capitol$
is in the VIP cue 
but humans

seeking work
are illegal
if they cross over.

You & I
we value people
and we value
their contributions,
"like us"
or foreigners
in our midst.

Thank YOU
for being
One Of Us

I'm proud to share
the work
of healing the world
with You
                 Fondly, cloudia
