Dear Mom, 

An open letter to the woman who has always picked up my pieces and glued them back together.  Dear mom,  1. The first day of lower kindergarten, and I came to you crying, saying that someone had pinched me at school.  “Why are you saying that to me? Go fight your own battles.” That was […]
