An Immigrant Mother and Son Share a Beautiful, Full Circle Moment of Gratitude
When we're young, we don’t fully grasp the tough circumstances our parents might be facing at the time. It’s only as we grow that we come to realize just how much our parents sacrificed to make our lives as good as they possibly can be. For this mother, who brought her family to the United States to escape political strife in Panama in the late 1980s, the sacrifices were bigger than her children realized at the time. In this short film from SoulPancake, she shares her story and a touching moment of gratitude with her now-grown son.
