A Model for Mothers


Amidst the barrage of bullets and missiles, she grabbed you and fled. She fled thousands of miles, alone, to nurture you in peace. Frightened, she sacrificed her wealth, possessions and life so that you can have a chance, a chance to grow. She embraced quietly and patiently to her new surroundings in an alien’s field, never mentioning her inner thoughts so that you can have a chance, a chance to grow.

Disciplined you when necessary and praised you when attained, so that you can have a chance, a chance to grow. Nurtured you into a wiser and respectful individual with her compassionate love and never once complained. Somali mothers, if resilience was a human, this would be her. 

The world can learn a lot from this beautiful & devoted mother.

Happy International Women's Day
