A Mother's Love...

I was really shocked when Sethe killed "Beloved."...but then again I wasn't. A mother's love for her children is so deep, that you would do anything to help your children. In her mind, logical or not, she though that if she killed her children she was in a way saving them. She didn't want them to have the life that she had at Sweet Home. She wanted better for them. In this case, better meant death. Sethe gave up her life of friends and neighbors at 124 to provide a "better" life for her children. After Beloved was dead, no one came by. She was a murderer and that's as far as people were willing to see. No one sees her deep love for her children and the real reason she did it. This makes me question what other parents would do in this situation. Would you go as far as to kill your children so they do not have to have the life you had?
