WE HONOR OUR MOTHERS - "The Holiest Thing Alive" - Coleridge

We look into the face of an unknown Calhoun mother from the early 1900's photo collection of Ferris Barr, taken along the waters of the lower West Fork of the Little Kanawha River. Today we honor mothers, everywhere:

"God could not be everywhere, so he therefore made mothers." - Jewish Proverb

"She who can take the place of all others, but whose place no one else can take." - Gaspard Mermillod

"God's deputy on earth." - Rahel Varnhagen

"The headliner in God's great vaudeville." - Elbert Hubbard
