A Celebration of Mothers and Women Who've Taken on That Role

Kulture Kritic Image & Article by April V. Taylor
 As we recognize our mothers; let us not forget those who are heading to Washington, D.C. to participate in the 'Million Mom March' against police brutality. Many of these mothers have lost their sons and daughters as a result of  police interventions.

'A Mother's Love Determines How'

A mother's love determines how
We love ourselves and others.
There is no sky we'll ever see
Not lit by that first love.

Stripped of love, the universe
Would drive us mad with pain;
But we are born into a world
That greets our cries with joy
How much I owe you for the kiss
That told me who I was!
The greatest gift--a love of life--
Lay laughing in your eyes.

Because of you my world still has
The soft grace of your smile;
And every wind of fortune bears
The scent of your caress.
