Mother's Day for Peace

Mother's Day will soon be upon us and it should be remembered that it wasn't started by Hallmark to sell cards. It was started by angry mothers as a protest holiday against the murdering of their sons in wars. It was Mother's Day for Peace and the original proclamation by Julia Ward Howe can be read here. It can also be read on the back of this Shirt which would make a timely gift!
