This is for all the moms who do better for their children than was done for them: you are heroes.
This is for all the moms who didn’t marry a guy like their brutal dad, but instead chose someone whose hands are gentle: you are heroes.
This is for all the moms who are wincing today, who aren’t buying cards or flowers, whose own mothers let them take the brunt of domestic violence, who looked at them with distaste, who hurt them, and yet do not pass that legacy onto their children, instead doing their best to nurture their children, body mind and soul: you are heroes.
This is for all the moms who go to a new country to make a better life for their kids even though they will never fully be at home there, doing menial and unskilled work, keeping long hours in shops, polite to people who have no idea of their true talents and intelligence: you are heroes.
This is for all the moms whose kids mystify them with their desires and dreams but tell them to go for it: you are heroes.
This is for all the moms who, despite all of the above, one day decide to go for their own dreams, to go back to school, to invest in their own businesses, to write or paint or dance their truth: you are heroes and your light will shine down through the generations to show the way for other heroes.
