The flipbook was inspired by the sad love story of my mom and dad. He could not stay with my mother for many reasons, so he left and let her raise me all alone. She was brave to do it despite criticisms, struggles, and obstacles being a single mom living within the lines of Vietnamese society. To me, my mom is as beautiful as a giant tree that nourishes my strength and encourages me to be who I am. Using my mother's voice to portray the poem is based on my memories of my mother and how broken my family was. Through this poem, I want to share my sympathy and compassion with my mother and let her know that I feel for her.
