Hello fellow ATS'ers. This is my very first thread, its nothing of great importance. But I thought some skilled info seekers could help me out with a
little problem. Forgive me if my search failed to find what I was looking for.
So there is a picture circulating on facebook. Its posted by a group "Its Different"
It is supposedly about japanese workers finding a dead woman, and then soon after finding a child wrapped in a "flowery blanket" also with a
cellphone inside with a dear message from the mothers heart.
Heres the story attached to the picture on facebook:
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!!
So just from the story posted. You can tell, that is no 4 month old child? And that is no remains of house/building coming down. They are clearly
under soil. That child underneath her must be dead, cause if anyone was free from debris holding them down, They would immediatly want out as fast as
possible, Or did they ask the child to stay there for the picture? DONT THINK SO!!!!
So with some searching, I've found comments about how Japanese rescue workers dont wear that suit, its a chinsese type. Unsure of this. Ive also read
that Japan does not contain and soil or ground that even looks close to this color.
So I need YOUR help, to find the real story. I am currently in a huge argument with a few people telling me Im wrong to think this is just some bull
rear end product.
I get the story is a feel good story and I should just let it be. But what amazes me, is that thousands of people just see the picture read the story
and just believe it..... Do people lack that much thinking skills these days? 2+2 = 3 apparently ?
I also dont think its fair to the family of this photo. This dead persons picture being spread around without the true story, thats disrespect.
I know most threads are meant to show proof and sources, but thats what I'm here seeking! Look forward to your help ATS! Forgive the messyness of the
thread, I wanted to bang this one out!
