We are a country that does not know that the original intention of Mother's Day was an anti-war protest. We are a country that has had only about 12 years of military inactivity in our 240 history. Vice President Pence himself has said recently that America will lead in military force and arms. All of this is tragic, if a nation wants to claim to be the greatest nation on the earth. Especially when considering that warfare is not the ultimate conflict, but rather when you tell your enemies, "You matter so little to me, that you need to be wiped off the map." What is even more tragic, is that we even have to ask if women's voices have a place in this discussion. If we are a nation that wants to send men off to war, and create single moms, then we should also be willing to listen to those single mothers when they speak.
