Happy Mother’s Day to all who qualify, or someday will. More and more, I see the wisdom in the idea that “The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.” Mothers are the primary instructors of the future.
I think of Aijalon Mahli Gomes’ mother today. Her heart must surely be broken, to know that her boy is languishing in a North Korean labor camp.
My prayer is that his release be gained soon–but for this: Aijalon went to North Korea for a purpose. May that purpose be fulfilled, lest his torture be for naught.
All over the globe, human beings are starving and treated like chattel. North Korea is but an example of the injustice. The entire human condition could be changed with one thing: Love.
The entire human condition is embattled by two things: Hate and Greed.
When will we stop? When will we listen?
May this Mother’s Day bring wisdom, hope and change.
