Your Morning Cry: Daughter Interviews Her Mentally Disabled Mom on NPR


Oh my God, this is just—gahhhh. I just have something in my eye. Like a speck of soot, or a ficus, or Cleveland or something. On NPR’s Morning Edition, Bonnie Brown, an intellectually disabled woman and single mom who works part-time at Wendy’s, was interviewed by her precocious daughter Myra. You can tell they really love each other. Among the subjects touched on is the way that Myra has to defend her mom from cruel stares and questions.

“What’s the hardest thing that you’ve overcome?” Myra asks.
“Being hurt from people,” Bonnie replies. Kleenex time, fuuuuuuu. Listen to the full interview over on NPR.
