The Sacrifice of a Mother’s Son — 2 Comments

  1. Your visit must have been so emotionally draining. God has given you a particular kind of empathy and ability to express it.
    Honestly, I can’t imagine how shattered those mums must have been or how anyone would recover from such loss without a savior.

  2. Oh, Maryleigh, I’m just reading this post and my heart is weeping for those mothers and wives who lost the son/husband they cherished. The numbers are staggering. Yes, I heard all that in history, but it doesn’t make an impression until you have your own sons; until you remember whom you have lost during your life. Standing in that spot would have chilled me; caused an overflow of tears; pierced my heart as I saw the tragedy in real life. You have made these numbers real; put flesh on them, and brought home the suffering of many. Thank you.
