Entry: Like Mother, Like Daughter Thursday, December 07, 2006

Mom threw me a gun. I stared at her in horror.

"Mary-Jane," she said "You are a woman. A woman is a mother. One day you would have to protect your children. Be brave and run!"

I ran without looking back, even when a shot instantly killed her.

Today I look at the gun in my hand, before throwing it to my only daughter.
She stares at me in horror.
I told her the exact thing as my mom did.

By the time she went running, they broke in.
A gun shot followed with mom's dying silhouette flashes upon me.
