CCS Journalism Club students honor their mothers





My mother is a very committed person. In the past she couldn’t afford college, so she spent nine years in the military. She used to be a stay-at-home mom until she recently got a job at a high school. When she was in the military she traveled all over the world, in very dangerous places, too. My mom works hard each day just so we have enough money for our very expensive bills.

My mom is a supportive and determined woman. She is the kind of person who will hold your hair back when you throw up. She is the kind of person who will start a conversation just to make someone smile and learn from their life. She traveled the world, more than once and has a sense of curiosity about other cultures and daily lives. She is independent and has been since she was my age. The person she is and all she has done in her life is very appreciated.

Dear Mom,
I appreciate how much you care. You are always around kids, every day. Whether at my school or with my sister and I. With any person, though, you appreciate their being and their time. I could write much more, but I have a question: What do you call a mom who is amazing, fantastic and beautiful as you? Answer: there are no words to describe how extraordinary you are.
Love, Hannah

My mom is one of the strongest women I know. She has a passion for gardening and all things outside. For years, she raised hundreds of chickens, all three of her kids, a cow and her calf, as well as two huge gardens and our house. Nowadays, my mom is still a huge inspiration to how I see the world. She does everything possible to make the world around her happy. For 17 years my mom homeschooled me and my siblings, teaching us how to interact with people and the world. She always knows how to go about making everyone feel loved. My mom knows what sort of person she wants to be and strives to become that person every single day. She has planted a love of nature in me that I’m grateful for every single day. I love you, Mom. Thank you for taking me through all of the hardships I’ve faced so far and continued to be independent as well as physically and mentally beautiful and strong.
Sylvie Miller

When I was born, my mom was in residency to become a family doctor. When I was four she traveled to Haiti to help the people in the earthquake. When I was ten, she went to Sierra Leone for the Ebola outbreak for seven weeks, then Greece for the refugee crisis. As hurricanes started to strike in Texas and Puerto Rico, she was there for that too. When the refugees started to flee from Bangladesh she was there, providing her care. As I have grown up, my mom has been a role model, and independent woman, and most of all my hero.

I don’t even know where to begin, there are so many reasons why I appreciate my mom. One is because she is one of the strongest women I know and also because she’s so kind and considerate. She is inspiring to our family and to the people around her. She inspires me in every way possible, from the way she carries herself, to how generous she is to others. She supports me in everything I do and is there for me whenever I need her. Thank you, Mom, I couldn’t imagine life without you.
