It is a cry from the silence of stolen voices. It is heard in the anguish of that poor and helpless widow who has to tend her sickly child in a home where the in laws have emptied after the death of her loving husband. It is the pain of the that young girl who is circumcised in the name of tradition. It is the grief of the young wife who bears the battering from her heartthrob that had become a heartache. From the rape victim on the streets of India to the product of rape child in the huts of Rwanda, from the hurt of early marriages to the shame of human trafficking- one thing remains certain: this is not Gods design. Men should be educated on this, women should be conscious of this because, some women are even the masterminds of these dastardly act. God created everything good says the Holy Book. One, He created a father to head and help, the other he created a mother to nourish and nurture. Mother is the home we come from. She is nature, soil, and ocean. A mother is not a person to lean on but a person to make leaning unnecessary. She brings the sunshine into the house. A Mothers love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible. One of the oldest human needs is having someone to wonder where you are when you dont come home at night. The love of a mother is infinite, limitless, eminent and unmitigated. Her love for her children lives on even beyond her. The mothers heart is the childs schoolroom. The strength of motherhood is greater than natural laws. A good mother is worth hundreds of schoolmasters. A mother loves her children even when they least deserve to be loved. There is no substitute for mother. Mother is the one we count on for the things that matter most of all. When it comes to love, Mom is the word.
