Happy Mothers Day from Senator Tim Scott – May 8, 2015

Tim Scott 4

Happy Mother’s Day!

I can say without hesitation that I would not be where I am today without the guiding hand of my mother, Frances Scott. She worked 16-hour days as a single mom to keep a roof over our head and food on the table, and for that I can never really thank her enough. She sacrificed so much of herself for my brother and me, and I am truly in awe of her strength.

Perhaps even more importantly from my view, she did not give up on me – even when I had given up on myself. Failing multiple classes in 9th grade, cutting up in class, focusing too much on football and not enough on academics – it didn’t matter, because she knew that there was more potential in me than I could see at the time.

And I think that speaks to what we all can see in our mothers – that their unbridled optimism, not for their own lives, but for their children’s lives, can lead to amazing things. I take that message with me as a public servant, and I will continue working to build an even better America for our kids and grandkids than we have today.

Happy Mother’s Day to my mom, and all the moms across our great nation who are working, guiding, teaching, disciplining (something I also know well!), and showing their families the definition of strength, dedication and love.
