Dear Mama, #1176


Ladies & Gentlemen,

Let me introduce to you the next American star……   Ms. Toya Graham!


This woman has fast become a spokesperson for the Baltimore riots.  She is the lady that found her son in the middle of the rioting with a hoodie over his face and slapped the crap out of him for being there and participating in the violence.  Perhaps she is a little rough around the edges, but I applaud this fine dame.  In essence, she really wasn’t slapping the crap out of him.  She was slapping some sense into him.

What would you do if you were in her shoes and found your kid taking part of something immorally and unlawfully correct and that could get them killed?  Most of us would do whatever it takes to remove them from the situation.  Toya Graham just happened to do it in front of TV cameras.

So, my song of the day is for motherhood, because we all need to keep tabs on our kids and knock some sense in them from time to time.  Tough love, friends!  This is 2Pac singing “Dear Mama.”  I certainly wish his Mama could have saved him and keep him out of trouble.  It’s nice to bring 2Pac back today. May it be a reminder to that 16-year-old kid that he’s lucky to have Toya Graham as his Mama.


About tucsonsongstress

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
