St. Paul, Minn. — Families across the United States will celebrate Mother's Day this Sunday for the 100th time. The holiday is a century old this year. Though it's traditionally celebrated with gifts, cards and flowers, the roots of Mother's Day in this country are based in activism.
Mother's Day began as a call for peace.
