As I celebrate Mother’s Day, I think of all the great things my mother passed on to me—life lessons, acts of love and sacrifice, and words of encouragement and wisdom. But there’s something else she passed on to me, which I know she wishes she could take back. Without knowing, my mother passed on...

On Mother’s Day, Feelings of Gratitude & Frustration

May 11, 2014
Owen was discharged from Hopkins last Tuesday morning. Before we left, the drains were removed from his head and back, he was given his first bath in nearly a week, and we were told that he had been the talk of the floor amongst the nurses because of his cheerful attitude. He literally skipped down...

Mi Mamá Siempre Puso a Sus Hijos Primero

May 10, 2014

My Mother is my Derivation and Place

May 10, 2014
“El dia que naciste mi niña linda, nacieron todas las flores” are the first words my mom said to me this morning. It’s moments like these, in my mother’s infinite love and unconditional affection, that I remember why I’m activist. As we approach Mother’s Day, I’ve been thinking about Paula Gunn...

Lesson from my Mom: Community Responsibility

May 10, 2014
Of the many lessons my mom taught me, the most lasting is this: because we had good health, food to eat, and a roof over our heads, we had a responsibility to be thankful and to give back to our community, especially the poor, disabled and elderly.
