Shamelessly stolen from Wikipedia: “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 Grafton, West Virginia. St Andrew’s Methodist Church now holds the International Mother’s Day Shrine.[6] Her campaign to make “Mother’s Day” a recognized holiday in the United States began in 1905, the year her mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis, died. Ann Jarvis had been a peace activist who cared for wounded soldiers on both sides of the American Civil War, and created Mother’s Day Work Clubs to address public health issues.”

Being a “peace activist” did not mean the genesis of mother’s day did not mean that mother’s day was born from protests, or at least in the way we fondly think of protests: turds from places like Berkley (who can find their arse with both hands) smashing and burning things the moment someone says something that they mildly disagree with…

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
