Think about mother

This letter is directed to all those men, young and old, who like to "trouble" women on the streets and public places by making the most disparaging comments.

Next time you see a pretty woman and you are about to launch your vulgar, verbal attack on her try and stop for a minute and remember that it was a woman who carried you in her womb for nine months and gave you birth.

It was a woman who took care of you when you could not walk or talk; it was a woman who cleaned the mess in your pampers and comforted you when you were cutting teeth.

It was a woman who felt your pain when you had colic and took you the doctor or health centre to get your shots.

And one more thing; how I dress and how I walk and where I happen to be is not an issue, so get a life and have some respect!
