To Those Who Don’t Celebrate Mother’s Day

Dear Fellow Journalers,

There are some women among us, who cannot celebrate Mother’s Day. There are some women who feel lost and abandoned due to deaths of children (disease, SIDS, addictions, estrangement). Unfortunately, the media seldom thinks of the pain these women feel and bombard the airways with happy children and mothers eating, playing, living.

Some of these women don’t go to their prospective places of worship on this Sunday, because of a long held tradition of the pastor acknowledging mothers with a single flower. Are you still a mother if your child is in prison? Are you still a mother if your child is living on the streets? Are you still a mother if your child hasn’t spoken to you in years or only contacts you if they need money?

Please remember these women who walk around us. They may be your neighbor, A friend, A person you see at work or in the store every week. Wishing them a good week is better than ignoring them.

Abd yes, they are still mothers!

Sallie
