The first North American Mother’s Day was conceptualized with Julia Ward Howe’s Mother’s Day Proclamation in 1870. Despite having penned The Battle Hymn of the Republic 12 years earlier, Howe had become so distraught by the death and carnage of the Civil War that she called on Mother’s to come together and protest what she saw as the futility of their Sons killing the Sons of other Mothers.So, one way to think about this day is that it has to do with Mother's teaching their children to not kill other Mother's children. Good stuff.
Happy Mother's day to all fin, fur, flesh and feather moms. Teach your children well, please...you human Moms can best do this by living and teaching the path of the ethical vegan.
Consider limiting your "Momming" to just one child or adopting (your child doesn't have to belong to the same species you do). If everyone did this for a while all Moms and children would be much better off.
