This video is a few years old, but it deserves to be remembered. It is a music video for a rap song by Nick Cannon, whom I have heard is pretty popular (I’ve never heard of him other than this song).
It is a beautiful modern testimony of thanksgiving from a son to his mother for giving him life. Some of the lyrics:
Hopefully you’ll make the right decision
And dont go through with the Knife incision
But it’s hard to make the right move
When you in high school
How you have to work all day and take night school
Hopping off da bus when the rain is pouring
What you want morning sickness or the sickness of mourning
So many women find themselves in the same situation as Mr. Cannon’s mother – let us pray that they would be touched to give their children life so that they don’t have to go through the “sickness of mourning.”
Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us!
