I was touched by reading Gilbert's story about his mother. I have a hard time understanding women who don't hold up to their responsibility as a mother. A mother is to supposed to be nurturing and always put her children first. I never have done drugs so I guess it is hard for me to understand women that do drugs. I have a close childhood friend who did drugs and I saw the destruction that it did to her and she spent 10 years in prison behind drugs leaving behind someone else to care for her child. No person will ever treat you child like you and I hold being a mother to the highest. I will die for my children and I can't do that if my head is mess up. The other thing that I liked was that Gilbert said it like it is about who do people want to know, Gilbert the person or Gilbert the basketball player. I can tell you from my experience it has been hell with my son in the NBA. People don't understand what the family have to endure with everyone that can't get to their son approaching them for money or something. Personally for me, it has been a nightmare. In the NBA the families don't want to talk about the extra pressure that they are under because of their sons. Yes, some families are just a bad as other begging people, but those of us who are not, we have just as much pressure as our sons. We have lost family and friends behind something that is not ours. You have people who feel they are entitled to something when they have done absoultely nothing just because they are a relative. I wish people really knew the pain that some of use go through daily because of our sons money. Some of our sons treat their family well and some don't. Those of us who are privigled to live a better life are very thankful, but I don't feel we should feel guilty because we can live in a bigger house or driver a better car than what we had before. Remember not all players came from a broken down family and some may have been poor in money but rich in love.
