is today. she is my wonderful world work woman of the week. my mom came up out of adversity attending one of the strongest schools in the nation. she is an amazing teacher, founder of a school that serves immigrant children in LA, dedicated community organizer, and a beautiful mother.
mostly though she knows me better than anyone in the world. she has taught me what love is everyday that i have been alive.
i only hope that one day i will love my children with the fervor and depth that she displays daily.
