A beautiful heartwarming story from the Japanese quake and tsunami...



This is a true story of Mother’s Sacrifice during the Japan Earthquake. 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 by an object. The collapsed house had crashed her back and her head. With so 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 be still alive. However, the cold and stiff body told him that she had passed away for sure.

He and the rest of the team left this house and were going 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 had through the narrow cracks to search the little space under the dead body. Suddenly, he screamed with excitement, “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 for saving her son. When her house was falling, she used her body to make a cover to protect her son. The little boy was still sleeping peacefully when the team leader picked him up.

The medical doctor came quickly to exam the little boy. After he opened the blanket, he saw a cell phone inside the blanket. There was a text message on the screen. It said, “If you can survive, you must remember that I love you.” This cell phone was passing around from one hand to another. Every body that read the message wept. “If you can survive, you must remember that I love you.” Such is the mother’s love for her child!!

I wonder what she would say to the executives of Tokyo Power if she could speak to them now?....When can we expect to see them throwing themselves on their knives in shame for what they have done,not only to their own people and country,but to the world?...

This is a beautiful heartfelt story of love, sacrifice and survival. As that baby boy grows he will know how much his mother loves him. My heart and prayers go out to the people of Japan and their difficult recovery process.

Apparently this is a story from the Sichuan, China earthquake a few years ago rather than the more recent Japan earthquake/tsunami. Still an increadibly potent message.

Beautiful story, brought tears to my eyes. But I can't help thinking this one will become urban legend and we'll probably never find out if it's really true.

It is now (7:44am) where I am ....and I am wondering...(I am addressing this to the author of this thread)....did you make up this story....is it fiction made up by you?

I loved this story. If it's true, then it is proof positive that a mother will do anything to safeguard her child (as if there were any question.)

I did a Google search using the first sentence in the story, and it's ALL over the web. I looked at the first half-dozen inks and none of them had attribution to a source, although in the comments readers have come to the conclusion that the story took place in China and not Japan, if it happened at all.

Still, S&F for making me cry. That's not an easy thing to do.

I came across the story on my FB feed, and certainly didn't make it up. Having dug around a little after posting it here seems it could be from the Chinese quake, as half the Google results attribute it to that disaster and not the more recent Japanese one.

You can't see a single face in the picture, so if you can tell the difference between Chinese and Japanese by the back of people's heads let us know how you do it.

What a beautiful story.
It just reminds me of the bond a mother and her children have and how strong that love can really be.

Great story even if it isn't from Japan. A parents love is probably the highest love you can ever receive.
