A Mother’s Cry: “Stay strong, be tough that’s what the preacher tell ya, he never really felt ya, so he can’t even help ya, need a shoulder to lean on, somebody to cry to, it’s like everything’s gone but I’m a survivor.”
These are the truthful words slurred from the mouth of New Orleans own rapper Lil Wayne on his hit song “Get Over” off his Certified Platinum Album Tha Carter II. To often senseless violence leads pastors to saying those very words to grieving mother’s as the funeral service comes to an end, “stay strong, be tough” not understanding that the mother of that child laying in that casket life will never be the same. As a parent I’m sure you’ve woken up only to find out your child is still out and you begin to worry, but soon as they return home and realize their ok you head off back to bed. But have you ever wondered what life would be like if every time you woke up your child wasn’t there, and all you had was pictures and old videos for memories? Scary right? Well, that’s reality for some mothers. A Mother’s Cry is a docuseries that sits down with mothers from all across the United States to zero in on how losing a child has changed their lives forever in hopes to catch the attention of people and let them know who’s the biggest loser in the senseless violence fight. Life is so precious but often times can be taken for granted.
