If wealth was the inevitable result of hard work and enterprise, every woman in Africa would be a millionaire.
Thank you, beautiful African mothers, words alone cannot explain the appreciation we have for you.
We are forever grateful.
This is Africa, our Africa
Happy Mother’s Day.
I strongly believe it should be illegal for teenagers, under the age 18 in Canada or 21 if you live in America, to have children. These people are not mature enough to care for a child, nevertheless financially care for a baby. On average it costs a bare minimal two hundred thousand dollars to raise a child. Teenagers then have to find a place to live, find a way to buy a vehicle, and on top of that, find a way to finish getting their own education. I think in the case that they do have a child, it should be taken away from them until they are old enough to be considered a legal adult. This is both beneficial to the baby and their parents, so that they can at the very least finish high school and have time to earn more money before they are reunited with their baby. Its a very selfish thing to have a baby before you can even manage your own life and money. To me its close to being child abuse for a baby to be placed in the care of someone so inadequate. I would also like to make it clear that removing the child from it’s parents would only be a temporary arrangement. The way I see it, if you’re too young to drink alcohol, you’re too young to make a life long decision that not only effects yourself but an innocent child.
* it’s worth mentioning the fact that almost every teen single mom will end up living in a poverty which I’ve learned in the sociology class.
It’s incredibly hard to juggle between having a job and being a mom. I think it’s much more important for the many teens to reconsider.
Don’t you want your children to live in an environment where you can provide more than just basic needs??
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’m weeping now T.T

A Teary Mother Bear Killed Her Baby and Committed Suicide – A Heart Breaking True Story
Traps were laid in the wild illegally. When the bear was trapped, she lost not only her paws and four limbs for a good fortune of money, but she was locked up in the cage and had to endure daily torture of bile collection up to 25 or 30 years. This bile collection process requires a hole to be cut in the bear stomach and an iron pipe inserted into the bear gall bladder. Bile was then taken several times a day. The entire procedure was done without anaesthetic in order to save cost. The pain was excruciating. The bear could not bear it and attempted to kill herself by punching her stomach. However, human prevented this suicide act by forcing the bear to wear an iron vest. With this iron vest, her movement was restricted; committing suicide was an impossible task. A mother bear knew it too well. When the bear worker wanted to open up her cub’s stomach, the mother bear broke open the cage and went after the cub. After failing to release the chained cub, she hugged the cub. The mother bear then killed the cub to save it from a life of hell.
* WOW WTF! god damn 25- 30 years? nobody fucking deserve to be tortured like this. ABSOLUTELY NO ONE
you know what truly makes me extremely angry?
That the mother bear was left with no choice, but to take her own cub’s life away in the name of LOVE… THAT WAS THE BEST CHOICE SHE CAN DO AS A MOTHER.
For their own good. WHAT A FUCKING TRAGEDY FOR THEM TO DIE IN THIS CRUEL WORLD.
