Away from all these conspiracy theories reside our mothers.
The mothers who send their kids to schools even when they know they aren’t as safe as they were once.
Over a hundred mothers saw their little kids for the last time when they went to school on 16th December 2014.
There are mothers who are embracing the dead bodies of their young sons; in police uniform, military uniform, and also in no uniform; on a daily basis.
There are mothers who see their sons and daughters dying daily in the desperation of meeting the basics.
There are mothers who see their daughters suffering because of society, culture, misogyny, and patriarchy.
These mother get hurt daily.
Yet they never ceased the process of reproduction.
They cook hope in the breakfast and clean wounds at the dinner.
Perhaps they inherited this from our fearless mother Fatima Jinnah.
Why mothers in Palestine never stopped having kids? They are suffering since forever, yet they are populated as ever.
Because it is not about death.
It is about life.
