National Truckers Appreciation Week was founded by ATA in 1998 when it first began honoring drivers. It’s a great good way to take a moment and think about the sacrifices these people do every day. Without them the economy would have no way of moving forward. Not to mention we wouldn’t have food on our table every day- or a table, for that matter.
Truck drivers leave their families at home and miss out on so many things with them. Although, there are many ways to stay in touch with them, imagine how many moments they miss out on. Also, they don’t sleep in their own beds, eat badly and drive for hours to provide a decent living.
It is inevitable to mention that truckers provide everything we eat, sit on, sleep on, and see around us. Truck drivers head out on the roads to safely and efficiently deliver the clothes we wear, the food we eat, and the medicine we rely upon. Almost every item in your home or office was delivered by a truck.
Truckers keep our communities safe and with stock all the time, this industry is the backbone to our economy- and the drivers are the heart of it!
Take a moment this week to reflect and be thankful for America’s drivers. It’s hard to imagine a society without them. And the important role they play in keeping our communities safe and with stock. It’s important to take the time to recognize the people on whom we depend on for so much. Trucks and truckers pass in and out of the background of our lives, always working hard to make safe, on-time deliveries. However, don’t forget to appreciate your drivers all year round!
