Mother's Day - Be inspired by their inspirational stories - Anne Burras campaign!
Charles Margerison tells us about his Amazing Mothers publication, why he wrote it and about his passionate admiration for some of these inspirational women.
Mother’s Day is a celebration of amazing women everywhere with motherly qualities. Single mums, working mums, stay at home mums, adopted mums, all demonstrate the strength of motherhood and know of the sacrifices that all mothers make; whether personal, political, or financial, to raise their families.
Why has Anne Burras been ignored? She is one of the most important women in American history. Anne Burras, or Mrs Leyden as she became known, has the right to be called the founding European Mother of America. It is time that Anne Burras, the maidservant who became the founding colonial mother, is recognized.
Why not build a statue to her memory?
Why not have a national holiday in her name, representing what women have done to develop America?
Why not make her a folk heroine whose story is told in every school?
Indeed, why is Anne Burras not already famous?
