ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- The St. Louis Board of Aldermen took a special moment Friday to honor mothers in the city.

Many of the mothers introduced at Friday's Board of Aldermen meeting lost children to violence in St. Louis.

The moment was an effort to honor the work of moms to curb violence, but also acted as a call to action in St. Louis.

“We are living in a troubling time and it requires all of us to be guidance counsellors,” said 19th Ward Alderwoman Marlene Davis. “We can't stop. If anything, we have to excel and do more."  

"We need to put it in context and not just about a number,” said Board of Aldermen President Lewis Reed. “Somebody loved them. So on this Mother's Day let's remember that."
