This is Julia Ward Howe's Mother's Day Proclamation which she wrote in 1870 as part of her effort to establish a Mother's Day for Peace in the wake of the American Civil War. The Mother's Day tradition continued into the 20th century and in 1914 President Woodrow Wilson declared the first national Mother's Day, as a day for American citizens to show the flag in honor of those mothers whose sons had died in war. This audio/video version of the Mother's Day Proclamation features actors and activists reading portions of the proclamation. It is available on MP3 download and streaming audio & video from Democracy Now.
