One Mother’s Story….Many Mothers’ Stories
By: Neil Siskind
This week a mother was captured on video removing her son from a protest in Baltimore which she warned her son not to attend for fear for his safety. She caught him in attendance against her instructions and she almost literally dragged him home. She later explained that she is a single mother and does not want her only son to end up on drugs or arrested-or dead. This very public story exemplifies the struggle of so many single mothers who have to be a mother and a father, and a nurturer and a disciplinarian all at once where there is no father in the home.
