What is your mother like? My mother is a creative, optimistic, inspiring, loving, and understanding woman.
What will you do for her on Mother''s Day? I''ll send her this article and a card to let her know how special she is.
Are you looking forward to your own Mother''s Day? I haven''t put much thought into being a mother myself.
Malcolm MejiaDigital ethnographer, Monterey
Tell me about your mother. My mother raised me on welfare while she went to school and therefore was not there for me.
But what would you like to say to her? I love you and I support you.
What do you think about Mother''s Day? I believe that our birthday should be Mother''s Day. We should celebrate her accomplishment--I mean, she did all the work pushing me out, right? I really just cried.
