Raging Grannies Mother's Day Parade

Marching up Columbus Avenue today, the Granny Peace Brigade spread the word about the true anti-war meaning of Mother's Day, and passed out leaflets with the words of its founder Julia Ward Howe in 1870: "We the women of one country will be too tender to those of another country to allow our sons to be trained to injure theirs".
As delightful as the Raging Grannies and their marching band were, it is a somber message for this and any Mother's Day.

  1. Loved the parade. Had to smile as the sounds of the streets seemed to lend their applause and approval to the Raging Grannies Mother's Day musical message via one appropriately-timed car alarm.
