Grannies For Peace Mothers’ Day Vigil At Tulip Festival

On Saturday May 11, Grannies for Peace will hold its 21st annual Mother’s Day Vigil at the Tulip Festival. The early advocates of Mother’s Day in the United States originally envisioned it as a day of peace, to honor and support mothers who lost sons and husbands to the carnage of the Civil War. This year’s theme is Gaza: Send Food Not Bombs. Marcia Hopple of Women Against War talks to Mark Dunlea of Hudson Mohawk Magazine about the event.
