Belatedly The Interim wishes every mother a Happy Mother’s Day, and echo the sentiment in this Frank Klees tweet: “Happy Mother’s Day to all who have that awesome responsibility. You all deserve to be nominated for Sainthood.” As we editorialized last year:
The family is the school of love and it is taught only as it is given. The cultural problems arising from the lack of mothers (and their terrible solutions [such as universal daycare]) are solved by the family itself. Families must be examples of love, beacons of light to those around them. Children, likewise, as living symbols of love, fidelity and sacrifice, should be welcomed and celebrated by society, not menaced, even before birth, with the threat of death by abortion. And parents, especially mothers, should be examples of love to others, their children first of all.
