Just thinking about how my mom didn't get to accomplish things in life. Dying from AIDS and leaving me to survive with the virus. I live because she made a decision not to live. I love because she made the choice not to love. I sacrifice because she made the choice not to sacrifice her life to be here for mine. At the age of 28 she died. I thought for many years that it was selfish of her to leave me and my siblings to fend for ourselves. 28 I will be, and I sometimes think and wonder if I will live or pass at that age. Never to see my kids go to college, see my grandkids, grandkids' kids. I shall win because I believe in God and UEqualsU. Despite the decisions she made I will never make the same mistake. Identifying self worth I call it. I'm doing things she never did: ambassador, traveling, motivational speaker, a business, etc... I can't blame her really because the stigma back in her days was crazy, I can only imagine. I shall be that little light on the hill that shines as the word of God says. She passed the torch and I'm going to light the fire.
