Letters to the Editor: 1870 Mother’s Day words valid today

Arise then, women of this day? Arise all women who have hearts whether our baptism be that of water or tears! . . .We women of one country will be too tender of those of another country to allow our sons to be trained to injure theirs. From the bosom of the devastated earth a voice goes up with our own. It says “Disarm! Disarm! The sword of murder is not the balance of justice.”
From Julia Ward Howe’s 1870 Mother’s Day Proclamation for Peace
Bunny Daubner
