There’s an assumption that females of a certain age must be mothers. That’s an assumption that makes Mother’s Day painful for women who are childless by
chance, not by choice. Mother’s Day is a very different experience for women who would have liked to include Mother in their life history, but for reasons ranging from medical to relational, have never had children by birth, adoption, foster or marriage, and never will.
We have a pervasive problem in this country of unequal treatment, disparate levels of justice, and an attitude of entitlement. I’m not talking about some
outrageous views of poor, uneducated, law-breaking minorities. I’m talking about specially trained, majority, law enforcers who act without vigilance for justice. And we don’t want to talk about it. We want to limit the conversation to a couple of hashtags. You know the ones: #AllLivesMatter and #BlackLivesMatter.
