Mother’s Day was established in 1914 by President Woodrow Wilson for the purpose of remembering mothers and honoring peace. Peace begins at home and while this is true for most people, it is not true for everyone.
This is a very special time. We find ourselves in the first week of Lent, recalling that Christ suffered for our sins and arose on the third day. We also find ourselves marking the one year anniversary of the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) on March 7th, and International Women’s Day on March 8th.
