Some of you may know that I’m quite the tweeter.  I (Ashley) found these Mother’s Day tweets from Carol J. Adams and the Institute for Humane Educaiton (IHE) particularly important today:

IHE:

Happy Mother’s Day to all moms of all species of the world. May you know peace & justice & be free from cruelty, oppression & exploitation.

Carol J. Adams:
