I remember making breakfast for my mom on Mother’s Day. Thanks for the ideas to “mix it up,” such as in the May 3 story “Ready to mix it up on Mother’s Day? Try rye berry pancakes.” Sadly, my mom is gone now, but I still want to honor her on Mother’s Day. This year I am calling my senators and representative to pass the Reach Every Mother and Child Act (S.1911/H.R. 3706).
This bill would aim at ending the preventable deaths of 289,000 mothers and 5.9 million children each year. I think my mom would be proud of this gift. You can call or write as well, in honor of your mother and all mothers, to ask representatives and senators to pass this life-saving legislation. Do it with the kids so they see how democracy works, and then make mom a card about the process. Imagine the joy in millions of families in our world when these deaths are avoided.
