Why Mothers

Mothers are the most important job. Mothers tie civilization together. If there were no more mothers, no one would be born. No plant or animal could survive. Mothers teach us how to walk and talk and all our manners. Everyone, everything has a Mother. If it does not, it cannot survive. The only way the human civilization can die out is no more mothers. That is why mothers are important.
