I'm a pretty patriotic guy. I love football. American football. I love baseball—that all-American game watched by millions every summer. I love basketball—the sport that we invented. But for me, my love of sports is just scratching the surface of my patriotism. I love to look on the inside of my shoe and read the label that says "Made in America," even though I'm not sure that any of my shoes say that anymore. I like seeing that little red-white-and-blue-made-in-USA insignia on a product, because that tells me that some hard working Americans poured their time and effort into making that product. Since I'm around lockers a lot with my hobby and my occupation, I want to share with you a dream of mine. Someday, I want to see the schools, gyms, hospitals, fire stations, changing rooms, and classrooms in this country equipped with lockers that tell a story. The Story of Hard Work People work hard all over the world, not just in America. However, America is a country that was built on hard work—hard working pilgrims, pioneers, and patriots. From freed slaves to farmers, the fabric of the country was formed by hard work. Only hard work will keep our country afloat. Building steel lockers is hard work. A company that places these honest jobs into the hands of honest Americans is a company whose lockers tell a story that is over two hundred years old. The Story of Quality Too many times, I've purchased a cheap item and watched it literally disintegrate after a few uses. Whenever possible, I buy American-made items due to the quality that I'm confident I can get. When it comes to lockers, I'm no different. Maybe it's because I'm picky, and know a good locker when I see one. However, I want to see more metal lockers with "Made in America" boldly printed on them. It tells me that there is a group of hard-working people in a warehouse or manufacturing shop who are proud of what they do. It comes through in the product they make. It tells a story. The Story of America Americans can still make stuff. And we can make it pretty good. I'm not absolutely opposed to buying something that's been brought over on a ship from somewhere else. But it's somehow special—and right—to know that the money I spend is going back to some hard-working American and his family. It's reassuring to realize that the economy we're working so hard to save is getting a bit better because I just bought "Made in America." I like to know that there are Americans who work hard and make an honest buck, because an entrepreneur was bold enough to go follow the American dream. That's why I like lockers that tell a story. That's patriotism.
