She was a Rock

My mom cleaned toilets for a long time, and she’d seen a lot of terrible things, but she was still the strength of our family. And there are women like that all across the country – all around the world – who show that type of fortitude.

    1. I’ll let you into a secret, Bronnie, I’d never heard of him before this post – I put a link under his name, just in case anybody else thought, who on earth is he? When I respond to a OWC, I try to read other people’s responses too. So there are often maybe 15 responses to read. Ideally, I like each of them to be just a few seconds long, so I can get through them all in a few minutes. And try to do the same myself. Mostly. So I like to post images, or songs, or quotations, something which might make people reflect without me having to say anything. But where I don’t actually write much material myself. So I went looking for a quotation which used the prompt and I thought this was very powerful. It’s not unusual, me not knowing some showbiz personality, it isn’t an area I am interested in. But yeah, that video makes all the right noises.
