Although we will be traveling that day, we will hold in our hearts our own mothers and sending them our eternal love.
We got an important email from enoughproject.org, about a conversation Oscar-winning actor Javier Bardem had with John Prendergast, the co-f0under of Enough, about the mothers of eastern Congo, and how the illicit trade in Congo’s conflict minerals is fueling the ongoing conflict. They are urging Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to step up efforts to resolve this terrible situation and end the violence in the region.
This prompted me to write on our Facebook page: “Imagine yourself creating peace for the women and children of Congo for Mother’s Day. Encourage Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, a loving mother, to help resolve this crisis NOW! As many of you know, this issue is a burning desire of mine, I feel deeply the pain, sorrow and unnecessary suffering of these women.”

Please help us imagine a world where women are safe, respected, honored and loved. Thank you.
