I am a 41 year old mother of three living
in a peaceful community full of amenities
and a realistic promise of safety.
Still, I worry about my children and fret for their future.
My heart goes out to women
in less stable societies with fleeting assurances of safety who, despite their greatest efforts, can’t keep their kids safe from random harm.
I am educated and hold a JD,
but still struggle to provide my kids all that they hope for.
I cringe for those mothers who do not have the
luxury of education and struggle even to provide
their kids with basic needs.
My life’s objective has always been to make a difference.
From now on, my life’s work will be to try and make even the smallest of contributions in a great-big world replete with need. My aim will be to reach the countless women who suffer through war and famine; death and disease; natural disaster and man-made calamity …
but remain peaceful and pass their
hope onto another generation.
