Wednesday letter: Restore Mother’s Day tradition

May 15, 2013 

What has happened to the traditional wearing of flowers on Mother’s Day to honor our mothers? Red if we still have them with us, or white if they have passed away. Hardly anyone ever does this now. But as long as I have breath in my body I will do this. I would be ashamed not to.

By the way, this isn’t just a woman thing. I’m proud to say that my 13-year-old grandson wore a red rose in his lapel Sunday in honor of his mother.
