When I was 7 or 8 years old, my mother told me the story about a mother who while pregnant became ill with cancer.

The heroic woman of my mother’s story chose to wait. Six months after the birth of her daughter, the mother died.

If you’ve ever trained a child to drive, you have experienced true terror. You too know the feeling of absolute fear and trembling as you careen down the highway at overwhelming speed. 

 

I don’t care if you’re actually on a country backroad going right around 35, by the way. Something about teaching your own flesh and blood to finagle a motorized vehicle makes life feel like a scene from "Speed," starring you-the-mom in the role of Sandra Bullock.

I read dozens of pages of journal entries my mother wrote after she was widowed and moved to an assisted living facility.

In our belligerent times, there is a kind of in-your-face response to those of us wringing our hands about how divided our country is.
