House Celebrates Role of Mothers

On May 7, the House approved, 412-0, a resolution (H. Res. 1113) celebrating the role of mothers in the United States and supporting Mother’s Day.

Sponsored by Rep. Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE), the measure contains a number of findings, including:

  •  Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of each May;
  •  2008 is the 100th anniversary of the first official Mother’s Day observation;
  •  the services rendered to the children of the United States by their mothers have strengthened and inspired the nation throughout its history;
  •  we honor ourselves and mothers in the United States when we revere and emphasize the importance of the role of the home and family as the true foundation of the nation; and
  •  mothers continue to rise to the challenge of raising their families with love, understanding, and compassion, while overcoming the challenges of modern society.
