I came across this post via facebook. It gives one lots to think about this Mothers’ Day, with the story of 2 mothers and their fight for recognition. One, the author of the Battle Hymn of the Republic, Julia Ward Howe, and the other a community organizer for the rights of women workers, Ann Maria Jarvis.
Oh yes, and fact: the USA started Mothers’ Day before Canada. See, we are still better!
