We drive in cars designed by engineers on roads designed by engineers listening to music mixed or duplicated by engineers and then we are supposed to thank teachers that we can read.

Engineers design and build every bridge you drove across today. Engineers help provide clean water to your home today. Teachers teach us to read, but engineers provide society with so much else.

OK, a little wordy (looks like an engineer wrote it), but very true. Actually, there are many places where we can place stickers to remind ourselves of the reach of engineers in our society. For example, on our toilets we should place the following:

Now, these are bumper stickers for our society.
