Why do moms march?

It's for the little ones, like Sydney Meyers of Germantown, Md., that moms and grandmothers, too, planned the Million Mom March in Washington, D.C., and in other towns May 14.

The ELCA Commission for Women supported the Mother's Day event, calling it "a day that ... seeks to end gun violence, especially as it is claiming the lives of children and young people" nationwide. Sydney got her official T-shirt from her grandmother and Washington marcher, Jean Martensen, who directs leadership development and studies for the commission.
