Jumping out of the speeding car

When I think about something too much I end up seeing analogies for it everywhere. The plague of the writer. I know that MY mind immediately made the connection between the mother who jumped out of her carjacked SUV with her baby in her arms and all the families I know of who are trying to decide what to do when they realize the treatment their child is getting may not only be failing but may be damaging as well.

“I’m not a hero. I’m just a mom. That’s all,”

I can't advise a mom to jump, but I defy anyone to judge her.

  1. I sobbed when I read this aloud to ny daughter. The power of love is very strong.

  2. I have finally learned to love your analogies. This one is so striking and powerful, and perfectly illustrates your point.
