Truck Driver appreciation week
This is the week to give appreciation to those that make our lives a bit easier by making it easier to get what we need. It is the truck drivers that transport the majority of the merchandise that we buy in retail locations. The American trucking Association has set aside the second week of September to show drivers that they really are appreciated.
The lives of truck drivers we often imagine as being glorious but this is not always the case. While they do travel and see lots of things others would never see the work they do is hard long hours. Sometimes they are gone for weeks or months at a time in order to make sure deliveries are made on time. In our area many of our drivers haul coal and those are long hot dirty hours.
I appreciate all truck drivers many of which are members of my own family.
