A Mother's Forgiveness: Friendship Between the Mother of a 9/11 Victim and the Mother of One of the Terrorists
Phyllis Rodriguez and Aicha el-Wafi have a powerful friendship born of unthinkable loss. Rodriguez' son was killed in the World Trade Center attacks on September 11, 2001; el-Wafi's son Zacarias Moussaoui was convicted of a role in those attacks and is serving a life sentence. In hoping to find peace, these two moms have come to understand and respect one another.

Best Mum in the Village
She dresses like a regular mother in your neighborhood. She buys groceries in the supermarket and chitchats with friends on the street. She keeps her house nice and tidy at all times. She loves her children. 
This is the story of a mother whom social services claim has the mind of an eight-year old. She may not have the most posh child-proof house or apartment in the block but she makes great effort in ensuring her child's safety at all times. 
How do you fight for your children when you're a mother with learning disabilities and the social services and government agencies are keen on taking them away from you?
