Why Moms Are Marching on Sunday
The moms who are going to participate in the Million Mom March in Washington, D.C. on Mother's Day, this Sunday, May 14, all have one reason in common for their commitment to the cause of enforcing gun control laws: they want to protect their children, and others as well, from the dangers of guns. But additionally, each participant has special private reasons for the day-long trip.
