Reading Time: < 1 minute

Women like me felt the most painful loss there can ever be in this world. The loss of a child.

For some it was through miscarriages, some through still births and some of us were blessed with the opportunities of seeing our children for a short while.

Then they were cruelly taken away from us even before we could get a chance to teach them how to be better men than their fathers.

Some of us refused to take our children to the mortuary because we just needed one more minute with them.

There is nothing worse in this world than laying next to the body of your dead child.

Rest in peace my child and all the children of all the women that felt that pain cut through their lower abdomens.

For those few moments we got with our children, we are grateful.
