Mother's Day Proclamation 1870 | Shundahai Network
I'm inviting you all to come down to the Nevada Test Site for Mother's Day and have your voices heard, we all have concerns for the younger generation; so they can continue their life. The people are the backbone of the government. We should be dictating to the leaders instead of the government dictating to us how they are going to shorten our life.
So let's unite ourselves together and save something for the future. Come for sure for Mother's Day and stay as long as you can and we will all be together. That way, we'll have a cleaner life and enjoy our life for the younger generations. Let's talk together. So come and bring your stuff; your bedroll, your food and the water you survive on. As a person, I really appreciate you people.
