Veterans Day 2023 – Celebrated on Saturday, November 11, 2023 but Federal Holiday is on Friday, November 10, 2023!
In the United States, Veterans Day is a national holiday which is observed every November 11th. This holiday is set aside to honor all who have served in the U.S. Military. This is the anniversary of the signing of the armistice, which ended the World War I.
The Labor Day holiday in United States is celebrated the first Monday in September. Labor Day was really created by the national labor movements to celebrate the American worker and their achievements, both social and economic! Each of us that work every day, immigrant or citizen, this is our celebration! For more information about the history of Labor Day review the Department of Labor’s (DOL) web page, “History of Labor Day“.
MVP Law Group would like to thank workers worldwide for their contributions to our society!
“Immigrants signed their names to our Declaration and helped win our independence. Immigrants helped lay the railroads and build our cities, calloused hand by calloused hand. Immigrants took up arms to preserve our union, to defeat fascism, and to win a Cold War. Immigrants and their descendants helped pioneer new industries and fuel our Information Age, from Google to the iPhone. So the story of immigrants in America isn’t a story of “them,” it’s a story of “us.” It’s who we are. And now, all of you get to write the next chapter.” – President Barack Obama

“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.” I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slaveowners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood. I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream…”
Excerpt from Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” Speech, delivered on August 28, 1963, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial!
