Sichuan Earthquake

A friend sent me this as part of a powerpoint. Left a very strong impression on many people I forwarded it to.

This baby, after being buried over 24 hours, miraculously, was rescued unscratched. He is about 3-4 months old, and his mother kneeled 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…”

+ Provision of material needs such as food, water, medical care, and clothing.
+ Organized education programs.
+ Some understanding of what has happened and why, especially for the older children.
+ The opportunity to complete all normal stages of child development.
+ A belief in the future and the opportunity to influence what happens to them.
