“There is nothing like the protection of a mother.
I have heard of mothers doing crazy things for their children. There are all kinds of incredible stories out there about this.
Periodically in the news you hear about a mother who lifts an entire car to release their pinned child trapped underneath.
Mothers run into burning building to save their children. Or you hear stories about a mother giving a child a new kidney or life-saving organ.
Mothers violently fight against any threat whatsoever it is that faces their child – it does not matter how great it is. When a mother feels that a child is threatened it is as if her own flesh and blood is threatened, for that child of her womb is of her own body – that child whom she birthed and nursed.
If necessary mothers will die protecting their children, and do so without thinking twice about it.”
