My lovely and amazing editor sent me a link to this BBC article: Why Mothers Push for Peace. It is a wonderful look at how mothers are shaping the current anti-war movement. Medea Benjamin and I recently cowrote an op-ed on that very subject, focusing on how Cindy Sheehan's vigil embodies Julia Ward Howe's original Mother's Day Proclamation, which was written to protest the deaths of sons during the Civil War. If the op-ed finds a home, I will be sure to share the link.
