A New Orleans Mother’s Day Parade was interrupted by gunfire on Sunday, leaving at least 12 people, including a 10-year-old girl, wounded, reported CBS News. The 10-year-old girl sustained an injury to her side, according to the New Orleans Police Department.
On Mother’s Day, celebrities took to Twitter to wish their mothers and wives, and mothers everywhere a “Happy Mother’s Day.” Kerry Washington, including all mothers in her Mother’s Day tweet, wrote, “HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to all you moms, God-moms, step-moms, pet moms, Other Mothers, etc! (that means YOU TOO movie mom x 2 –> @s_epatha XOXO)” Modern Family’s Eric Stonestreet was decidedly less inclusive, tweeting “Happy mothers day to my mom Jamey ONLY.
Every year, Mother's Day comes along, and every year, you find an uncharacteristically innovative way to screw it up. You wait till the last minute to buy a gift and decide, for reasons that will never be clear, on a gift basket full of scrunchies and lavender-scented hand lotion.
