There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief…and unspeakable love

Washington Irving

I was in tears.. :cry: :cry:

I was browsing through my inbox when I received a forwarded mail with the title: Hero. It is a Power Point slide presentation of Sichuan, China earthquake disaster, collection of photos and news. I could not control my tears from flowing out when I saw this:

This baby, after being buried over 24 hours, miraculously, was rescued unscratched. He is about 3-4 months old, and his mother knelt down, pinned her head and hands on the ground to shielded him from the falling concrete, and milked him. His mother did not make it out. A rescue worker found his mom’s cell phone in his wrapper. It had a text message left by his mother: “Dear child, if you survive, please remember, Mom loves you forever…”

I went to Google and I found more news on this. Reading the last words over and over again, I was in tears. :cry:

“My dear baby, if you can survive, remember I love you”

ps: I know I wrote somewhere before, “Love is Selfish“, now I shall eat my own words.

pss: Tears are words the heart can’t express..

psss: Here is the slide presentation – Hero

    Jesus said to the women, “Women of Jerusalem, weep not for me but for your own children!” Sure we feel sorry for them, we can donate to help them…but there are others around us who need our help too!!! Spare a thought for the less fortunate… You’ll be blessed for whatever little that u may do for the least of your brethren.

    I saw the slide presentation and I couldn’t stop 😥 . Tomorrow is my school’s teachers’ day celebration. We are going to collect a donation for this cause. If possible, I’ll show the whole school these slides. Thanks for sharing Bong.

    Bong, I come here to vent my anger also find the same “kepala”. I never thought you’d post something like this.

    It’s a sad story. Thanks for sharing.

Those are just personal ramblings and shits, ketidakpuasan hati on certain issues more like it. Entah, tak kisah really :)Suka hati lah nak tulis apa :up:
