US Vice presidential candidate remembers Her Mother in maiden speech

Vastavam web: During the election campaign America vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris remembered her mother Shyamala Gopalan, saying it was she who taught her not to sit and complain about things during the time of problem but do something to improve it. Making her first appearance along with Biden in Wilmington in Delaware, Harris said her mother had a great role in her life.

“My mother, Shyamala, raised my sister Maya and me to believe that it was up to us, and every generation of Americans, to keep on marching. She’d tell us, Don’t sit around and complain about things, do something,” Harris during her appearance in Wilmington, Delaware. “You know, my mother and father, they came from opposite sides of the world to arrive in America, one from India and the other from Jamaica, in search of a world-class education,” she said.
