Mother's Day for PEACE
- All are welcome to celebrate the true meaning of Mother's Day!
Centerville, Virginia – Mother's Day today is not what was intended by its founders. In 1870, Juliet Ward Howe wrote the "Mother's Day Proclamation," a call to action that asked mothers to unite in promoting world peace. President Trump's proposed budget has 62 cents of every dollar in taxes going to the military.
