Not a Hallmark Holiday after all

Mother's Day started as a peace movement. Check out the Mother's Day Proclamation by Julia Ward Howe.
...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...
Oh yeah, sing it, sister.
