This Man Pushed His Wife To Save Himself. It Is Wrong? Wait ‘Til You Read The Ending!
A teacher was sharing a story in her class about a couple in a cruise ship that was about to sink. Apparently the life boat only had space left for one person. This story will drive your emotions wild but in the end will leave a disheartening but very meaningful life lesson, whether this story happened in real life or not.
A cruise ship capsized while at sea. On the ship was a couple who, after having made their way to the lifeboat, realized that there was only space for one person left.
At this moment, the man pushed the woman behind him and jumped onto the lifeboat himself.
The lady stood on the sinking ship and shouted one sentence to her husband,” the teacher narrated before asking: “What do you think she shouted?”
She noticed a young boy who was silent throughtout the story so she asked him instead and to her surprise he answered:
“Teacher, I believe she would have shouted – Take care of our child!”
When she asked why did the child believe so, he answered: “That was what my mom told my dad before she died to disease.”
“The cruise sunk, the man went home and brought up their daughter single-handedly.
Many years later after the death of the man, their daughter found his diary while tidying his belongings.
It turns out that when parents went onto the cruise ship, the mother was already diagnosed with terminal illness. At the critical moment, the father rushed to the only chance of survival.
He wrote in his diary: ‘How I wished to be in the bottom of the ocean with you, but for the sake of our daughter, I can only let you lie forever below the sea alone.'”
The tragic story reminds us that some situations will force us to make hard decisions though we don’t want to, that life is not black and white and there is always a gray part that tells of the story behind a decision, it wasn’t just a yes or a no, sometimes we choose yes not because we want to but because we have to.
Remember this, when situations arises and you are left wondering why people did things that you do not comprehend.
