mother’s day proclamation!

05/08/2011 § Leave a comment

happy mother’s day to my mom, kimie tanaka, and to all the double-duty mommas that make our world go round.

and while mothers day has become a hallmark holiday (im down w flowers n treats), let’s also raise its history as a Civil War era call by women against war, for racial equity and for women’s leadership.   pieces feel particularly relevant today:

“..Disarm! The sword of murder is not the balance of justice.”

Mother’s Day Proclamation, 1870
-Julia Ward Howe 
Arise, then, women of this day! Arise, all women who have hearts, Whether our baptism be of water or of tears!                

Say firmly:

“We will not have great questions decided by irrelevant agencies,
Our husbands will not come to us, reeking with carnage, for caresses and applause.
Our sons shall not be taken from us to unlearn
All that we have been able to teach them of charity, mercy and patience.
We, the women of one country, will be too tender of those of another country
To allow our sons to be trained to injure theirs.”

“Through violence you may murder the hater, but you do not murder hate. In fact, violence merely increases hate. So it goes. Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” – Dr. King
