Mother’s Day began in 1870 here in the United States as a protest against war in an effort to unify women together to ensure peace. “In the name of womanhood and of humanity, I earnestly ask that a general congress of women without limit of nationality may be appointed and held at some place deemed most convenient, to promote the alliance of the different nationalities, the amicable settlement of international questions, the great and general interests of peace”. ~Julia Ward Howe 1870 #MothersDay
