Something to think about as we honour Mothers
No Mothers Day
I first heard about the organization, "Every Woman Counts" and the woman who founded it, Christy Turlington Burns in an interview, on CBC radio, this past week. This organization promotes a campaign called "No Mothers Day" meant to make us aware of the devastating lack of proper health care for woman giving birth, in many countries throughout the world.
While, I'm not sure I would want to do away with celebrating Mother's Day, the group has a very worthwhile message.
As we will be honouring mothers, this coming Sunday, let's also give thought to women who don't have access to proper health care in our world.

Later this week I will be posting about a very inspiring group of change makers in our world who work towards peace, diplomacy, and womans' health.
