Today is Mother’s Day.  A day we in America honor those women who have raised us, and made us who we are.  For better or for worse, moms have been there as the driving force in our lives.  They have given up many of their comforts and most of their time to raise their families full of love and happiness.  They have caused us to love or hate by their attitudes, their values, and their joy in living.  While the 1950’s mom encouraged her sons to play football and her daughters to take ballet, today’s moms have crossed the boundaries and have as eclectic tastes as there are flavors of ice cream.  And these interests have created a population unique and self-assured.

Depression and anxiety in the hallways. Xanax being popped like M&Ms. People crying in the bathrooms.  Oh, wait,
