Improvement Era, Vol. 30 : May, 1927 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Improvement Era, Vol. 30: May, 1927 Through all our history the women of the country have faith fully responded to the nation for the services of their children. Where ever there was work to Ido that needed their skill, sympathy and courage they have been found. But it is in the home that the ih fluence has been most powerful. There the weal or woe of the future life is found, and the standard of the political world is also founded. George Washington, Andrew Jackson, Henry Clay, and James A. Garfield are notable examples of great men whose fathers died early, leaving them to the sole care of their mothers. Abraham Lincoln was only nine years old when his mother died, but he received the lasting impression of her power for good in the depths of his being. He was often heard to say All that I am, or ever hope to be, I owe to my sainted mother. Frances E. Willard said, I thank God for my mother, as for no other gift of his bestowing. Many an eminent man in the zenith of his fame is regarded as the product of some party or system, but when the label grows dim and disappears, there stands out in the life the graven name, Mother, perhaps all unknown to the Crowds who applaud her son. Thanks to the mothers who have given life and being to sons and 'daughters; mothers who have heeded and are willing to obey God's great command, to be fruitful, 'and multiply and replenish the earth Well might all of us exclaim with Tom Dillon.
