2016-Happy-Mother's-Day

“When I turned seven, she took my hand and took me to school and said: ‘The only weapons a successful person needs are knowledge and education. You have to use this powerful weapon and shoot down cruelty and lawlessness.’”  
       — 
from Zahra T.’s “My Mother, the Mirror of Justice
