By the hand of a man my mom's life was cut short and the lives of her children were changed forevermore.
Forty-two years ago on this day
Domestic abuse took my Mom away.
Loved ones, crying hearts know not silence—
No rhyme nor reason for the violence.
ARISE AGAINST ABUSE
In memory of Mom I created this lovely ceramic ornament. This is a piece of my life that never gets packed nor put away after the seasonal holiday.
You, too, can create your own memorial ornament at Zazzle. You, too, can arise against abuse.
