  • Remember moms behind bars: Column

    USA Today - 05/06/2015

    This coming Sunday is a joyous holiday for most women with children, but certainly not all. On this day, my thoughts are with the countless mothers for whom the holiday is a sad reminder of tragedy and loss. My heart goes out to those women whose children cannot be by their side or even send a card bearing expressions of love because of the awful fact that they were murdered.

    It is often said that mothers are not supposed to outlive their offspring, not supposed to bury a child. That devastating loss — a parent’s worst nightmare — can be fused with anger and bitterness when the child’s death was the result, not of accident or illness, but of the intentional and senseless act of another.
