Truckers play a key role in our society. They ensure that goods and merchandise reach their destination safely and on time. They deserve our appreciation for their hard work and dedication. To do their job, they often have to drive long distances. Add to that the time pressure and unpredictable weather. Not to be ignored are the challenges to a family life. It is the nature of the job that most truck drivers are away from their families for long periods of time. While modern communication devices make it easier to stay in regular contact with family, the job can still cause additional emotional strain as special moments and events can be missed.
Truckers deserve recognition and thanks from society.
