Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day.

Happy Mother’s Day to my mother, who is everything I could ask for in a mother.

Happy Mother’s Day to my grandmothers, whose love, support and presence remain with us even after they have moved onto the next life.

Happy Mother’s Day to my great-grandmothers and the countless generations of women in my family who have come before me and have paved the way for future generations.

Happy Mother’s Day to the millions of mothers who were killed in The Holocaust and other needless genocides, who did the best they could for their children under impossible circumstances.

Happy Mother’s Day to the women who fought for the rights and the opportunities that were only a dream and have since become a reality.

Happy Mother’s Day.
