A Mother's Love

Daniel Tallouzi is from Albuquerque, New Mexico. He is the most severely brain damaged veteran from the Iraq War. His family however are the strongest and friendliest people I have met so far in ABQ. He has finally returned home to Albuquerque after a year and a half of treatment at various other (larger) rehabilitation centers on the east coast. His mother, Mary, knew it was time to bring him home, and I could tell she was glad to be home as well. She has given up everything in her life to be his everything. And although he can not speak or motion she continues to be there for him through it all. As mother's day approaches her love and strength for him reminds me why we should all shower our mothers with thanks.
