Dear Core Standing Women,

Two years ago and last year, we were the ones who committed ourselves to stand on the second Sunday in May, Mother's Day in many countries, to signify our commitment to a better world for our children. Many of us have continued our commitment to the world's children and grandchildren every day in many ways. Yet, as the second Sunday in May is almost upon us, this is a special opportunity, to show ourselves to each other, and feel deeply the global nature of our commitment.

Please register where you will stand on "Mother's day", May 10, at, and invite all your friends to register as well. Making our commitment visible is very important, especially now when crises abound. Please...

"... stand with us again for five minutes of silence at 1 p.m. your local time on May 10, 2009, in your local park, school yard, gathering place, or any place you deem appropriate, to signify your agreement with the statement below. Please stand at a different hour with a different time zone if 1 p.m. is not your preferred time.We ask you to invite the men who you care about to join you. We ask that you bring bells to ring at 1 p.m. to signify the beginning of the five minutes of silence and to ring again to signify the end of the period of silence. During the silence, please think about what you individually and we collectively can do to attain this world. If you need to sit rather than stand, please feel free to do so. Afterwards, hopefully you and your loved ones can talk together about how we can bring about this world."

With the deepest gratitude for all that you do and are,
The Team at
