MOTHERS - HEROES WALK AMONG US April 10 2018, 0 Comments
Mothers are not always recognized and acknowledged for their powerful position in the world. On Mother’s Day, May 13th, we have the opportunity to celebrate our mothers, in person or in memory. This is a day to formally honour the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society.
The modern holiday of Mother's Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at St Andrew's Methodist Church in West Virginia. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in the months of March or May.
The enormous debt we owe our mothers is acknowledged in many ways. In his essay “The Difference Between Mothers and Heroes” Lance Conrad summarizes three things all heroes have in common:
• Heroes answer the call
• Heroes have what it takes
• Heroes are willing to die for their case
History reveals that giants sometimes walk into the room holding a bag of groceries, driving a car, inspiring children to shoot for the stars, saving our lives, changing destiny. The below three links that tell amazing stories about heroic mothers.
