Words for Mom: A Letter and Poem from Probation Youth

Over the past month, De-Bug has been working with probation youth who have the hunger to write. Running editorials with these young men and women has been a humbling experience with challenging real-life topics surfacing. These editorials produce beautiful material where young people, who have experienced life in unexplanable ways, have voice. We are constantly reminded that young people, when given the opportunity, can share their experience in ways that we can all learn. The following two pieces are by two young women about the women who gave them life. These writings are part of a running workshop series. Feel free to comment, and workshop facilitators will share with the authors.
