“Casey’s Mother’s Day Gift

I awakened last Sunday morning with an enormous pain in my heart. Every morning I wake up, as soon as I come to consciousness and figure out where I am, my first thought is of Casey and April 04, 2004, the day he was killed in BushCo’s war for corporate profit. Some days, like Mother’s Day, are worse than others. “

Editor’s note: Her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan is an international humanitarian activist, a leading voice on issues of world peace and justice, and honorary chair of Rediscover Mother’s Dayexternal link, which celebrates the role of women as peacemakers.

Mother’s Day — whether it is the U.S. tradition of celebrating mothers
on the second Sunday in May, or on the first day of spring, when we
observe the holiday in Jordan — is universally meant to be a tribute
to motherhood and the blessings of peace. In fact, in America the
holiday
was originally called “Mother’s Day for Peace.” It was proposed
over a century ago by Julia Ward Howe, the famous abolitionist and
suffragist, after she witnessed first-hand the terrible bloodshed of
the Civil War in America and the Franco-Prussian War in Europe. Howe
hoped that the powerful maternal desire for security could shape world
events, and she called on mothers of the world to unite against war.
