09/07/2015: Labor Day

Good evening all.  As the title says, it’s Labor Day, which meant for the YAV house a day off to relax between orientations and the start of work at our individual sites.  Most of us went out to Magazine St. and walked around, looking at various stores and stopping for brunch.  Fortunately, it wasn’t as hot as it was yesterday.  So, walking around was much more tolerable, though it was hot and the AC/fans in the buildings was still bliss.  Regardless, there was not much in terms of reflection that happened today; it was a very lazy day, and one that will be missed once we all get into the grind of working tomorrow.  The house did finally finish watching “When the Levees Broke, a documentary on Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath.  Although I don’t agree entirely with some of the opinions given, the four-part movie was nonetheless powerful and really hit home on just how devastating it was for those who lived it.  For anyone who hasn’t seen it, I definitely recommend it.  Anyway, tomorrow starts a regular work cycle for me at Touro Infirmary.  So, hopefully I will have more to reflect on and write on in the days to come.  Until then, may God bless you in all you do.
