Seeing all things with a mother's sixth sense that's blind to jealousy and meanness; helping the little home that's crushed beneath an iron hand by showing mercy in a healthy, human way; rebuilding it, in fact, with stone on stone and bringing warmth to hearts and hearths too long neglected. She's warming thousands, feeding thousands, healing thousands from her store; the Greatest Mother in the World- the Red Cross.
