March 17: Saint Patrick's Day: St. Patrick's Day arrived a bit early here. I looked outside my back window this morning and there was an Irish woman there. Her name was Patty O' Furniture.

Mother's Day Proclamation
by Julia Ward Howe*, 1870
The First Mother's Day proclaimed
in 1870 by Julia Ward Howe
was a passionate demand for disarmament and peace.
Arise, then, women of this day! Arise, all women
who have hearts, whether your baptism be that of water or tears!
Say firmly: "We will not have great questions
decided by irrelevant agencies. Our husbands shall 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 taught
them of charity, mercy and patience. We women of one country will
be too tender of those of another to allow our sons to be trained
to injure theirs."
From the bosom of the devastated earth, a voice
goes up with our own. It says, "Disarm, Disarm!"
The sword of murder is not the balance of justice.
Blood not wipe out dishonor, nor violence indicate possession.
As men have often forsaken the plow and the anvil at the summons
of war, let women now leave all that may be left of home for a
great and earnest day of counsel. Let them meet first, as women,
to bewail & commemorate the dead. Let them solemnly take counsel
with each other as to the means whereby the great human family
can live in peace, each bearing after his own time the sacred
impress, not of Caesars but of God.
