Mothers Day Proclamation - 1870
A Mother's day wish from Janice--
From this mother to every mother, and to everyone who has ever known the love of a mother ... I wish you a day of joy. And to every mother in the world who has lost her child to this dirty, rotten system ... I wish you a day of peace from sorrow. May this day bring each of us joy, peace, rejuvenation, and renewed energy to continue working for peace--not just on Mother's Day, but every moment, every day.
by Julia Ward Howe
Arise then...women of this day!
"We will not have questions answered by irrelevant agencies,
Our sons shall not be taken from us to unlearn
We, the women of one country,
From the voice of a devastated Earth a voice goes up with
The sword of murder is not the balance of justice."
As men have often forsaken the plough and the anvil
Let them meet first, as women, to bewail and commemorate the dead.
In the name of womanhood and humanity, I earnestly ask
Biography of Julia Ward Howe
Julia's Voice is dedicated to reclaiming Mothers Day as it was intended by
Julia Ward Howe, a day to promote peace and speak out against war.
Mother's Day was first organized 139 years ago by the abolitionist, suffragette and poet Julia Ward Howe to promote peace and speak out against war.
Julia's Voice is a group of "mothers and others" who began our work of reclaiming Mothers Day in 2008 by honoring the Julia Ward Howe and hosting our first event to return Mothers Day to its original intent.
