It’s often said that there is no greater love than the love that a mother has for her children. If there was ever any doubt that this was true, then the doubter should take a strong look at this video. Like many teenagers, this kid wants to fly fast and furious on a skateboard. The only problem is that he does not have the use of his legs due to a disease. Do you think that stopped his mother from giving him the joy of riding fast and free? Nope. She found a way to get the wind beneath his wings and it’s enough to make you cry.
The love of our parents is something that has the power to influence how we show love to our own children. If we don’t get love from our parents, more than likely we won’t show love to our children. This is not always the case, but it does have a strong influence. In this video, a mother goes out of her way to make sure that her son feels the freedom he’s always dreamed of feeling. She risks her own safety to make sure that he fills the air with laughter. This is true love.
It is understandable that most of the criminals that they study all complain that they had a violent childhood. They did not experience love from their mother and father, so they found it difficult to share or show love themselves. If we are all aware of the fact that how we treat our children is critical to how they will display love as adults, why do we sometimes ignore our role in building their future expression of love? We act as if our children will simply learn how to express love on their own, rather than learning it from us firsthand. Is this simply our way of avoiding the responsibility to be effective parents? Hopefully, more love like the one expressed in this video will spread. It’s truly the only way to make any real changes.
