From a letter that Patrick Pearse wrote to his mother while in prison after the Easter Rising, “You must not grieve for all of this. We have preserved Ireland’s honour and our own. Our deeds of last week are the most splendid in Ireland’s history. People will say hard things of us now, but we shall be remembered by posterity and blessed by unborn generations. You too will be blessed because you were my mother.”
