Reclaim Mother's Day

In a few weeks it will be Mother's day. Just a reminder what an appropriate gift a Mother's Day for Peace T-shirt would be. Mother's Day began as an anti-war event prior to being usurped as a saccarine flower-givning day. The original Mother's Day Proclamation by Julia Ward Howe in 1870 called for disarmament and railed against the raising of sons as war fodder. That proclamation is on the back of the shirt.
