Instagram post by @elizabethwarrenma Elizabeth Warren

When I was 12, my daddy had a heart attack. All three of my brothers were off in the military, and Daddy was out of work for a long time. We lost our family station wagon, and we were about an inch away from losing our home. One day, I walked into my mother’s room and found her crying. She said, “We are not going to lose this house.” She wiped her eyes, blew her nose, and pulled on her best dress – the one she wore to funerals and graduations. At 50 years old, she walked down the street and got her first paying job: answering the phones at Sears. That minimum wage job saved our home, and my mother saved our family. I learned in that moment how mothers do what needs to be done to fight back. Whether you’re a mother or grandmother like me, or you plan to celebrate or remember the special women in your life, I hope you and your loved ones have a very happy Mother’s Day.

    Beautiful story! My mom did the same thing at 50 with eight kids at home after my dad had a stroke. She's still fighting today at age 95!

    @elizabethwarrenma I'm ready to join your campaign for 2020 if you'll have me... I absolutely love you and what you stand for. You don't tolerate inequities and aren't afraid who knows it. I have a chronic illness where I'm in pain constantly and have not been able to work. I literally have nothing keeping me from helping you in your campaign. I want to join the fight against people like Drumpf.

    Democrats lie constantly, for example, Hillary Clinton, Barrack Obama, Bill Clinton, Elizabeth Warren, and Chelsea Clinton

    If more mothers today thought like your mother, there would be a lot less people standing with their hands out and waiting for someone else to save them.

    Since you support the abortion mill known as Planned Parenthood, maybe your mother should've just aborted you to avoid having an extra mouth to feed and to save the rest of us from your libtard nonsense.
