Regardless of who you are or what your position is, it’s important to know who this woman was and what she did for not just her own children, but for everybody’s children. Because if there is one thing that every child on this earth deserves, it’s to be loved absolutely, unconditionally loved by their parents. Children should never, not ever, be afraid that their parents will stop loving them or will look down on them.

On behalf of a woman who knows what it means to be loved and knows what it means to be judged– and how very detrimental the latter is and how absolutely necessary the former is.

Now excuse me while I go hug my parents.
