I 1 Page 2 -- The Glenville Democrat/Pathfinder--- Thursda), July 31, 2003 S e in VETERANS REMEMBERED --- The pictured plaque to the left contains the 12 names of currently active military service personnel -- either members or their sons -- who are linked to Glenville Lodge, No. 105 of the International Order of Odd Fellows. Mr Hale Hardman (I-r) emphasizes that "We, in the Odd Fellows at Camden Flats, support our troops" to brother Odd Fellows, Jerry Helmick and Roland Yancey. (Staff photos by Dave Corcoran, Sr.) In Defense of Mothers by Mary Ann Radabaugh Dr. Manley, ! have never been so angry as 1 was when I read )our article in the Democrat entitled, "What's the big deal about 'Mothers'?" In this article you women had known ahead of time what it was like to be a mother, NONE WOULD HAVE DONE THIS JOB " In talking to other mothers, 1 have found! outraged; therefore, I write this letter. Believe me, I (a woman) would NEVER explain man and neither should you (a man) try' to explain woman. I have neverl man--never walked in a man s shoes. I LOVE what I see when l look out there OUR AMERICAN MAN, but I would not attempt to explain what had made marveh)us, caring creature that he is. At the drop of a hat, he protects his mother, his sisters, his wife, and his children, but 1 can't explMn this concept, or general, since I am not a man. HOWEVER, I can speak for woman, because that is what I am--a woma, mother. YES, I WOULD DO FOR MY SON AGAIN ALL THE MANY THINGS1 I DID FOR HIM. As I recall his 6th grade )ear, 1 went through his math book with him. In social studies, I taught him how to read and paragraph and pull test material from it. In math, 1 taught him math concepts, I was NOT a teacher then. AND yes, I would do it again. Many of the children tutored, I tutored before I became a teacher, which is to say, I was being a Motherhood knows no bounds--mothers mother all children with whom they contact. I tutored one young man in accounting who is now a lawyer, and literature who is now a high officer in Gilmer County government. I have tutored! small children in reading in more recent years. ALL of these are my children, and I would do it again. When my son's close friend, Randy Sayre, was killed in a car wreck in 1973,D at 3:00 a.m. from a terri ing dream, knowing that something terrible had ha some of our kids. I went to my son's bedroom and he was there, but still I could not to sleep for I knew someone had been hurt badly. The next morning we heard accident and Randy's death. Mothers cannot explain why they have F terrible things that are about to happen, but if they did not care with every fiber being thay would not have them. For a long time, I found myself still setting flate at our table for Randy. Just one more point, Dr. Manley. In August 1955, I gave birth to a baby that lad told me I could not have, because I was not strong enough to do so. In 1953, got married, a doctor had told me that I might live FIVE years if I NEVER got md NEVER had a baby. Rheumatic fever had left its mark on me in a big way-" blood count was EXTREMELY low. Being the typical teenager, I did exactly doctor told me NOT to do-- got married and got pregnant. What I am pointing is, I laid my life on the line to bring my son into the world, and I almost did not I would do it again. Dr. Ralph Fisher of Weston kept me in the hospital for two my son was born. The first week I was not permitted to even try to sit up in bed, two weeks before he let me out of bed to walk. How did my mother feel aboukrne to give birth to my son? She was frantic the whole nine months, because she was was losing her baby.- me. AND yes, mymother knew I was expecting a baby before because she'd had a dream about it. My point, Dr. Manley, is --that I WOULD DO ALL OF THE ABOVE MOTHERS NUTURE THE EARTH AND ALL THAT IS THERE ON. Oul are oriented towards nurturing and preserving. That doesn't just mean our means ALL CHILDREN and all the necessities of life needed to give them a good love all those ball games-- at whatever level. We love to watch children grow. Yes work, but it is well worth it! AND now that I have explained mothers, 1 understand better why men and sons are so willing to fight at the drop of a hat )erson they call MOTHER!
