This Mother's Day, we invite you to reflect on what today should really be about. Should it be about nice words and pretty flowers? Or should it be about giving the moms who care for us, and the essential work they do, real worth?
Only when caregiving is valued can we realistically expect more caring social policies. Let's take a good look at our values and economic policies this Mother's Day, and see to it that our policy-makers do the same. This is the real gift we should give mothers--and fathers and children--this Mother's Day.
