May Day is synonymous with International Workers' Day or Labor Day. . .
a day to celebrate the social and economic achievements of the labor movement.
May 1 also is recognized in the U.S. as Law Day! As President Eisenhower said when he recognized the first US Law Day:
“In a very real sense, the world no longer has a choice between force and law. If civilization is to survive it must choose the rule of law.”
May Day also marks the end of the cold winter half of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. It's been pretty chilly in Denver this winter!
As you see the spring flowers today, take a moment to reflect on the role of law in the foundation of the country and to recognize its importance for society. Be nice to a lawyer today. It is an occasion to celebrate!
Happy Friday, May Day, Law Day!!
