Quote of the Week

"When the real history of mankind is fully disclosed will it feature echoes of gunfire, or the shaping sound of lullabies? The great armistice made by military men, or the peacemaking of women in homes and in neighborhoods? Will what happened in cradles and kitchens prove to be more controlling than what happened in congresses?"- Neil Maxwell

In searching for a great quote this week I came upon quotes from George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, both praising their mothers for all that they were. These presidents that shaped the course of our nation forever were giving their mothers the credit.Activist Olive Schreiner drives my point home when she said "There was never a great man who had not a great mother. That is hardly an exaggeration."

Moms: Let us not underestimate the power and influence we have on the history of the world. Some days our efforts may seem feeble at best but they are not in vain.
