I refer to the article “Mothers are the pillars of our families, says PM Lee in Mother’s Day Facebook post” (Straits Times, May 14). It states that “”Mothers are the pillars of our families, with one of the toughest jobs of all. Nowadays they raise children, build careers, care for elderly parents, or even become the sole parent in a family.
While their roles and responsibilities have evolved, mothers’ unconditional love and support remain strong and steadfast. “Let’s celebrate our mothers’ contributions as leaders, caregivers, providers, and role models. Take time today, and everyday, to show your mum how much she means to you”. Other ministers such as Ong Ye Kung, Josephine Teo and Lawrence Wong also posted Mother’s Day greetings on their Facebook pages.”
