Cats in Slo-Mo of the Day

Melting hearts on Mother's Day is possible, not just by gifting a hardworking mom with flowers, cards, hugs, and adoration, but also showing them this video of Siberian cats moving in slow motion. If anything, it's also a good way to see a mother cat lay about helplessly while her kittens bug her for attention proving, once again, that the task of a mom isn't easy business.

According to this post on Bloomberg, Anna M. Jarvis, the founder of Mother's Day, wouldn't be too happy with the way that the holiday is commercialized these days.

The holiday has its roots in the early 1900s, beginning as Mother's Friendship Day, an act to bring together mothers from opposite sides of the Civil War. Later, after corporate America had began to market it, Jarvis addressed businesses, "You are using a beautiful idea as a means of profiteering. As the founder of Mother's Day, I demand that it cease."

With that tone, she had essentially swung a wooden spoon towards the collective backsides of corporations.

Tennessee mother, Lacey Buchanan, shares her story through this heartstring-tugging video she made about her son who was born blind and with a cleft palate. She does expose the less-than-kind words that she's heard, which seems less than important when it's countered with the video's uplifting message.

Gary Busey is probably the greatest (and craziest) dude in Hollywood, eclipsing the legend that is Nicholas Cage by leaps and bounds. So a video starring Busey about Mother's Day can ONLY bring joy to the hearts of people who love trainwrecks.

Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon Martin's mother, taped this Mother's Day video, which calls for the appeal of the Stand Your Ground act, the self-defense law that is the basis of George Zimmerman's defense.

The law has come under scrutiny in the wake of Martin's death, and Fulton's plea gives a sense of urgency to its change.
