Eleven-year-old Wakana Ueda is blind, but she didn’t let that stop her from running in the 26.2-mile Honolulu marathon. About halfway through, her legs began cramping, but she didn’t let that stop her from following the sound of her mother’s voice all the way to the finish line. I don’t think Wakana Ueda would let anything stop her from doing anything she set her mind to doing. As a human being, Ueda’s determination and strength make me feel hopeful and courageous. As a mom, though, the tears streaming down her cheeks as she crosses the finish line and walksstraight into her mother’s open arms … the sight makes my heart break, but not in a sad way, exactly. Maybe it would be more accurate to say that it makes my heart feel like it’s going to burst. It’s one of the most poignant illustrations of the love between a mother and child I’ve ever seen.
