DRI DUCK presents Ditch Diggers, a poem by Eric Borden.
After hearing someone refer to people who don’t go to college as “ditch diggers” in a not-so-flattering way, Eric was inspired to write a powerful poem that reversed the negative connotation of blue-collar workers. Eric’s poem has inspired many individuals in and out of skilled trades by shining a light on the importance of people who build this world and love what they do. In turn, it inspires acts of kindness, which is how #ThankADitchDigger was born.
