Son’s note to his mother on her second marriage will move you to tears

A Facebook post made by a boy named Gokul Sreedhar, wishing his mother on her second marriage, has been going viral on social media, with several people lauding the boy for his maturity and generosity in making the extremely kind and moving gesture.

Reflecting on his mother’s abusive first marriage with his father, Gokul mentions the sacrifices his mother made for him by bearing the innumerous insults and abuses since his childhood and added that she stayed in the relationship all the while solely for Gokul’s sake. His note (translated from Malayalam) regarding her second marriage read,

“It was my mother’s wedding.

I wasn’t sure if I should post this note. After all, there are still people today who can’t accept a second marriage. Avoid viewing this with suspicion, scorn, or hatred. Even if you do, nobody is bothered.

A woman who set aside her entire life for me. She suffered a lot in her abusive first marriage. Once, with blood oozing from her forehead following an assault, I had asked her why she bore all this. I recall my mother replying, “I live for you, I can endure more.”

That day, when I walked out of that house holding her hand, I decided to make this very moment happen. My mother, who sacrificed her entire youth for me, has many dreams and heights to conquer. I don’t wish to elaborate…I didn’t see the need to keep this a secret.

Mother, happy married life.”

Thousands of comments started pouring in soon after Gokul posted the wish, wherein people praised him and commended his mother’s bravery as well.
