It’s not a day for breakfast in bed, bon bons and roses. It is a day for peace.
Julia Ward Howe started Mothers Day as a call for the women of the world to come together to protest war and create ways to do away with war as an acceptable way to solve problems. This year we can celebrate not only our own mothers and our fellow mothers. We can celebrate that America is not at war.
And we can celebrate that with the Affordable Care Act, America is supporting mothers in their role of teaching children charity, mercy and patience and keeping families healthy and productive.
