Gold Star Mother’s Day is observed in the United States on the last Sunday of September each year. It is a day for people to recognize and honour those who have lost a son or daughter while serving the United States Armed Forces. This year this event was overshadowed by the visit of the Pope to Philadelphia. I think that it is only right that I remember it here. May God Bless all the Mothers, Fathers, Brothers, and Sisters of those who have given all.
