I hope you had a wonderful time with family and friends over Labor Day. You did rest from your labors right? I know I worked and I saw a lot of businesses open. Things today are a lot different than in the days of the Haymarket Riot but many remain little changed.

Everyone wants to be loved. We each seek significance – in our own eyes and in the eyes of others. We do our best to love our children and families and serve our neighbors and communities. We want peace and safety. We each laugh, cry, bleed and die. Along the way, we face challenges and have opportunities. We succeed and we fail. We make promises and we break them. This is just an inkling of our common ground. We’re also a lot alike when it comes to finances.
