If there is a bond that cannot be measured or explained by science-that between a mother and a child.

This piece is sad.

Sad, yet hopeful. A mother’s wish to leave a message for the child she won’t watch grow.

For memories she won’t share and for the mother she won’t be.

War is horrific. The deaths, the loss, the pain.

Yet, the pain a mother would feel is even worse. Because in this instant, at that moment of separation, the child doesn’t even know what the future holds.

What a terrible predicament. Well captured. Thank you B.
