I wanted to reach out and tell you how much you mean to me, and that you are one of my life heroes. Mom, growing up in this very misogynistic world, it always bothered me how men (and some other women) would treat you, but it never stifled your potential. You would power through all kinds of obstacles and push to achieve whatever goals you made for yourself. I have always felt weak compared to you because I know that obstacles like that in front of me would have derailed me from continuing forward. I appreciate so much the example you set for me, my brothers, and my sister.
You are my Hero!
Sincerely, Your Best Son! (Chatom)
