When you become a mom you have a new found love that you never knew existed until you bring this brand new life into the world, a baby, a miracle.
Yesterday when my husband came home from work, I woke up to Brian Williams reporting that there had been yet another shooting with five dead and several were injured. I really thought it was a dream, but sadly it wasn’t.
Each of these victims had a mom, a woman who conceived a child, brought life into this world, and raised the child for the greater good.
There are now five moms who are grieving right now, there are five mothers without their child, there are five mothers who are having to bury their child, there are five mothers who won’t have an opportunity to become a grandmother, and there are five mothers who aren’t able to continue on their child’s journey because their life was taken too soon.
Did these killers think about the mothers when he pulled the trigger? What about his/her own mother? I couldn’t imagine raising a killer, knowing my child that I raised consumed so much hate for people, put a plan into place to leave five mothers in his world to grieve for the rest of their lives each and everyday.
As a mom, my heart has been broken. I couldn’t imagine raising a child to hate so much, nor could I be on the other end of the spectrum and become a mom in an instant who has to bury my child.
How do we go forward from this awful situation?
We go forward by showing our children, who are the future of our nation, love, peace, and respect. This is America, we live in the land of the free and by that we need to raise children who will live up to those expectations to follow rules, respect authority figure, and to raise a family in such a manner that it will continue to pass the positive morals, rituals, and honor to each generation to follow.
If you’re a mom, please stop for a second today and hug your babies, hug your children, and let them know how much they mean to you. Life is too short and you never know when it will be your last hug, kiss, or verbal goodbye.
There are five mothers right now who were taken from this…
Mother’s lives matter, too, Dallas.
