There are doubtless many who deserve to be called a hero and most of them didn’t won battles. Heroes who passed away in all silence, without any acknowledgement for the good things they did in their often way too short lives. You probably expect me to name a name of great relevance in New Edens history, but I have to disappoint you. For me my number one hero to look up, is and will ever be my mom!
I’m not only talking about her “usual motherly duties”, I’m talking about her love and care she gave to me despite my outer appearance. The same hair and eye color like my father. The very same man who raped her, sold her and killed the rest of her, my family.
I must have remembered her every day on her darkest moment in life, and not few would have abandoned me in her situation. I’ve seen others doing it and I can’t blame them.
But she still loved me, gave everything to protect me, to see me grow up, hoping for a better life than she ever had. She taught me that love is greater than hate. Not easier but more rewarding. That’s why my mom is and always will be my greatest hero!
I would give everything being able to hug her for a last time, thank her for everything she did for me.
Now I’m depressed, where’s my bottle?..
