Earthquake mother’s sacrifice

After the Earthquake had subsided, when the rescuers reached the ruins of a young woman’s house, they saw her dead body through the cracks. But her pose was somehow strange that she knelt on her knees like a person was worshiping; her body was leaning forward and her two hands were supporting an object. The collapsed house had crashed her back and her head.

With many difficulties, the leader of the rescuer team put his hand through a narrow gap on the wall to reach the woman’s body. He was hoping that this woman could still be alive. However, the cold and stiff body told him that she had passed away. He and the rest of the team left this house and went to search the next collapsed building.

For some reasons, the team leader was driven by a compelling force to go back to the ruin house of the dead woman. Again, he knelt down and used his hand through the narrow cracks to search the little space under the dead body.

Suddenly, he screamed, “A child! There is a child!”

The whole team worked together, carefully they removed the piles of ruined objects around the dead woman. There was a 3 months old little boy wrapped in a flowery blanket under his mother’s dead body. Obviously, the woman had made an ultimate sacrifice to save her son. When her house was falling, she used her body to make a cover to protect her son.

The medical doctor came quickly to exam the little boy. After he opened the blanket, he saw a cell phone inside. There was a text message on the screen, it said: ”Dear baby, if you can live, always remember that I love you.”


This story was claimed to be a true story. Whether it is true or not, we can’t be wrong with mothers’ love and their sacrifices. We love you mothers!!!

    This event tells us that what extend we can be really human. This is the role of everyone as along as we live. That’s why Jesus said there is no greater love than to lay down ones own life for the other. spend time to shed tears for hating our parents.

    What manner of love is this?

  • Dr. Sudhakar November 10, 2011, 4:24 pm

    This story tells the great sacrifice of a mother to save her son… in the world, mother’s love is eternal… nothing can fulfil mother’s love in the entire universe. That’s why the mother stood first in the priority rather than father, teacher and god. ….. This may be real or creative story, but it preaches a very good lesson to the public that the mother never hesitates to sacrifice her life for the sake of her children…. that is mother’s love!…………………………..

    The story really shows one among many great sacrifices that our parents provides, while others obligate the responsibility of providing love!
