The most beautiful "lie"
This "lie" rescued a life.It displays what profound love is!
"Yaoer, the local dialect for daughter or son, I am your father. You must hold on. The police are coming in ten minutes!"
Maybe, this is the most beautiful "lie". It was this "lie" that helped the middle school girl drive away the fear in the debris, defeated the demon of death, and finally survive the quake!
This girl is called Wang Li, who studied at Dongqi Middle School of Mianzhu in Sichuan Province. Now she has been transferred to a hospital in Chongqing. She said when she was burried in ruins, many people consoled her by pretending to be her father! She wants to find them when she recovers. Her most important wish is to find them and regard them as her family members!
According to Wang Li's recollection, at 2:28, 12th of May, when the quake took place, she was in her history class. When the students rushed out of the classroom, the whole building was shaking. They crouched wherever they could! In no more than ten seconds ,the building collapsed, burrying Wang Li and some of her classmates underneath.
Wang Li was so scared that she yelled for help, but no one responded. At that time, she felt too weak to breathe and wanted to sleep very much. She was terrified. At the point of desperation, she caught sight of a big tree outside. She told herself green implied life. At this time she thought she should stick to the end.
"Yaoer, I am your father. You must hold on.The police are coming in ten minutes!" Wang Li said. In the next few minutes, she heard the voice of her "father". She was so happy and relieved and regained confidence for survival. At half past ten the next morning, she was rescued. Upon her survival, she discovered that it was some unknown people who tried their best to console her instead of her father.
It was not until after she had been sent to hospital that her parernts heard about her survival and went to see her. After a checkup, the doctor made a quick decision that she had to have her left leg removed. When her parents were at a loss what to do, , Wang told them," It is better to live than die. Losing a leg is not that serious." Wang Li told a journalist that her biggest wish was to find the "fake" fathers , and regard them as her family members!
Rescuers and rescuees have been competing with the evil of death and extreams since the quake,, These are stories that have been moving us these days.
These "fake fathers" encouraged the child. The whole world was deeply moved!
"Yaoer I am your father."—Remember the disaster, Remember the most beautiful "lie".
This "lie" saved a life, and displayed the most profound love in the world!
