I am breaking a tradition by posting more than one post on the weekends.
To all my Mothers out there…Happy Mother’s Day!
I am unapologetic anti-war….and there is a precedent with anti-war and Mother’s day……
In 1870, Julia Ward Howe responded to the horrors of the Civil War by issuing her “Mother’s Day Proclamation,” calling on women around the world to rise up and oppose war in all its forms.
It would be decades before Americans officially began celebrating Mother’s Day, and much of the original spirit of the proclamation has since been lost.
