Celebrate Mother’s Day with Standards


New York, May 11, 2012

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) invites all affected stakeholders to pass along the following note of gratitude by Sunday, May 13, 2012.

     Dearest Mom,

     Roses are red,
     Violets are really more of
       a purplish-blue
,
     Sugar is a starch derivative,
     And you are sweet too.

     Thank you for all you’ve done to
     help me become as strong and
     successful as I am today. You
     fed me, cleaned up after me,
     kept me safe, taught me and
     listened to me, dried my tears (not to mention my clothes), and
     cheered me on. You gave me a home, and showed me how to
     create one of my own
. I am eternally grateful to you.
     (Well, to you and standards!)

     Love,
     Your Son/Daughter

Happy Mother’s Day to all from ANSI.
