Within the framework of Mother’s Day, which is celebrated today, May 10, the person in charge of the Governor’s Office, María Fritz Sierra, led a tribute to Yucatecan mothers, organized by the Social Action League, where they play a fundamental role in their families and society.

In a ceremony held in front of the motherhood monument, located in the Historic Center of Mérida, Fritz Sierra endorsed the State Government’s support for all Yucatecan mothers, especially those who fight alone every day to raise their children.

Accompanied by the mayor of Mérida, Alejandro Ruz Castro, and the president of the Social Action League, Héctor Navarrete Muñoz, the person in charge of the Governor’s Office presided over this event that began with the Hymn to the Mother by the Typical Orchestra of Yukalpetén, and a profile by Carlos Sauri Quintal, representative of the Social Action League.

As part of the celebration, the Modelo school student, Sofía Estrada Ayora, recited the poem Canción de Cuna by Luis Brito Pinzón, while the students of the Eloísa Patrón Institute, Isabella Pérez Cetina; from Consuelo Zavala, Luis Esteban Magaña Ayuso; and from the Modelo School, Andrea Arceo Romero, expressed their thoughts to the mother with great feeling.

For her part, Mrs. Melba Peniche Caballero, a Yucatecan mother, sent an emotional message on the occasion of May 10, where she highlighted the enormous capacity for love that mothers have to teach their children the values to make the world a better place.

“Where there is a mother there is always love, they are the central axis of the family because even in the worst circumstances, they always take their family forward with tenacity, affection and will,” she stated.

That was followed by the Yucatecan poet and composer Luis Pérez Sabido, who recited a poem from his pen, which he wrote especially for the occasion.

The Yukalpetén Typical Orchestra delighted the attendees with melodies such as Reina de Reinas and Plegaria a la madre by Jesús “Chucho” Herrera Ramírez, Manos de Armiño with lyrics by Carlos Duarte Moreno and music by Pepe Domíngez Saldívar, as well like How Merry Mary Goes by Sergio Esquivel.

Finally, Fritz Sierra, together with authorities and personalities in attendance, held an honor guard and laid a wreath to recognize the Yucatecan mothers.
