Gratitude

From the NY Times article, Brooklyn Woman is Questioned in the Death of her Daughter, 11:

“The mother of an 11-year-old girl who arrived in New York from Mexico last month used a mop handle to beat her on Thursday — a thrashing so severe it left the girl listless, vomiting and confined to bed, the police said. Sometime between then and Sunday morning, they said, the girl died.”

When I read this, I thought of the time my mother beat me with a mop handle and I was grateful that I survived.
