Mothers of Murdered Children

Mother's Day is bittersweet for mothers of murder victims.Some say they approach the holiday with dread. Some find a quiet comfort in this time set aside for a role they cherish. Weeks leading up to the day are tougher than the rest of the year. The second Sunday in May is never the same once a son or daughter is killed.Women whose children are murdered suffer a lifelong pain — a testament to how precious motherhood truly is.
If we had a flower for each time we think of our Mom, We will walk in our garden forever.
