  •  My mom was not lazy! (6+ / 0-)

    My father was an alcoholic who tried to shoot my mother one drunken night. She threw him out. A single mom with 8 kids (1970) she worked 2-3 jobs to make ends meet (she had to quit DePaul to raise her family when she was 19 - typical back then. Short story, we were suddenly poor. Dad was always late sending support payments. So we got free hot lunch at school. It was embarrassing as hell (middle class white suburbia, only a few kids used the program). NEVER DID I THINK "my mom doesn't love me". I was grateful to eat and admired how hard she worked. She even took in a foster child that needed help. She is a saint. Wonder what these assholes would say about her?
