A Mother’s Day Wish

One of the reasons I have been so ardent in my support for Hillary Clinton, admittedly is because I, like so many women in America have waited so long to put a viable and experienced woman in the White House. The fact is that women are the core of the Democratic party. As a single mother with a daughter in her first year in college, I view this historic campaign as an inspiration to my daughter and the many young women her age, who should all believe that anything is possible in their future, including becoming the president of the United States.

To clarify, this Mother’s Day will be the first Mother’s Day since 1990, that I will not be spending with my daughter, and that needless to say is a little tough. But with the price of gas, and her being away at college 6 -7 hours drive from home, it’s not feasible this year.  A few hours ago, I received the email that the Clinton campaign sent out from Chelsea Clinton about her “Mom” and when I clicked on the link and watched the video at the link, needless to say, I was overcome with emotion (yes, I’m a wuss and the sentimental type).

Here’s the text of Chelsea’s email, please click through and watch the video and sign the card and donate:

Dear Pamela,

You and I both know my mom will make a great president. I’m so blessed to have her as the best mom I could imagine — at 8, 18, and 28. As we approach Mother’s Day, I want to share a few memories of my mom with you.

Take a look.

Thank you again for your support of the person I am so proud to call my mom.

Happy Mother’s Day!



I am proud of my support for Hillary Clinton for president. I am proud to be part of this groundbreaking movement of women who have come out for Hillary in this primary season, heart and soul. We women have stood on the sidelines for so very long, and it’s time to end that. It’s long overdue that we put a woman in the White House in America.

For all the Mother’s out there supporting Hillary Clinton, my wish this Mother’s Day that people stop and think of the dreams of their mother’s, because so many mother’s including Hillary Clinton have put their dreams aside for a time to raise their children. My wish for this Mother’s Day is that every pundit and Obama supporter and surrogate dissing Hillary Clinton and calling for her to drop out, stop and think for just one day of the phenomenal support that Clinton has among women and they instead honor the fact that she has run a strong campaign and made inroads for all women in America.

We, the women of America, the heart and soul of the Democratic Party, can not give up on our collective dream of Hillary Clinton breaking the ultimate glass ceiling. We just can’t.

    Beautiful ! Happy Mother’s Day Pamela ! Chelsea choked me up and we sent in our support ! Life is not measured by the breaths you take, but by the number of breaths that take your breath away ! Enjoy the journey mom’s ! My mom passed a year ago and she loved Bill Clinton and was an old school deomocrat in a house full of elephants.She made me laugh talking politics ! She’s up there looking down and supporting Clinton all the way ! Pull some strings up there mom,we get two for the price of one ! We need the Clinton’s,no doubt about it !

    Call edit, I’ve been moving and that should be revised to,”life is not measured by the number of breaths you take,but by the number of moments that take your breath away” Whatever,if you obey all the rules,you miss all the fun ! Live a good life ! In the end,it’s not the years in a life,it’s the life in the years ! Go mom’s in America and please vote Clinton !

    Happy Mother’s Day to you too. My mom has been gone for about 20 years, but I believe she’d be cheering Hillary on too.
