Founding Fathers! You know their names and accompiishments, including the names of those still missing in action or who may have, if the truth be known, missed action.
Even today these Founding Fathers, who many believe, to be men of the generation that is greater than the "Greatest Generation" are present and accounted for, revered and celebrated, for what they achieved, not quite on the heels of "Columbus,s discovery of America," but about two-and-three quarters centuries later.
But where are the Founding Mothers? We have a right to know.
Were the Founding Fathers the "reproducts" of immaculate conception, having been birthed and delivered to mankind and to Mother Earth without mothers? Where is the evidence of this mind-blowing aberration of nature's doings?
For two and-a-quarter centuries Americans have asked, Where are the Founding Mothers? Some of the respondents have said, "We did not have any Founding Mothers." Most Americans cannot accept that answer. It seems to be out of sync with human experience and common sense. We are not giving up. We will not cease and desist asking for somebody to introduce us to our Founding Mothers. Our Founding Mothers, perchance they existed, and we believe they did, may have known, said and done things that our Founding Fathers did not know, say or do. What they knew, did and said may be the key to our survival as a nation. Without our Founding Mothers the feminine principle is missing and, to the degree that it is, so is love, gentleness, caring and "mothering." It just maybe, that if we were introduced to our Founding Mothers we would hear from them "words of wisdom' that would rescue us and give us hope. Nearly eveywhere children can be heard crying for their Founding Mothers. Call some of them "mama's boys," if you must, but they too are among that vast group of Americans who want to hear from their Founding Mothers
Wouldn't it be awesome if, after all these years of being reminded on a non-stop basis of the admonishments and mandates bequeathed to us by our Founding Fathers, that "we the people" could hear the people with endearment declare enthusiastically, "Our Founding Mothers said...did...meant...mean... and so on?"
