I am the Unseen Mother

playing

I am Charlie. I stand with the rights of freedom of speech and expression.

But…more than that, I am the Unseen Mother. I stand with the Muslim mother who had to decide how to explain to her children that members of her community chose violence over discourse…just as I have had to explain to my children why they practice hiding from a gunman in the halls of their school…and how I pray at night, as those mothers must pray, that my children will never grow into those men.
