Selection from Call for Articles: A Miracle after My Son's Head Was Hit by a Shot Put
(Clearwisdom.net) This happened soon after I had started to practice Falun Dafa.
My son had been mentally retarded since he was young. He was weak and could not keep up in regular education. He could not reach the standard requirement for physical education. His teachers often asked me to transfer him to another school. However, where could I transfer him to? No other school would accept him.
The physical education teacher left my son to practice throwing the shot put one day after school. Suddenly, another child threw the shot put and hit the top of my son's head, knocking him to the ground. Blood streamed from my son's head.
The teacher rushed to my son, wrapped my son's head with clothes and called a taxi to take him directly to the hospital. Another student called my home from a public phone and said that someone's head was injured and that it was related to my son; he said this person had been sent to the hospital and hung up. He did not tell me clearly whose head was injured, so I did not know whether my son hit another person's head or if my son's head was hit. I thought that I would pay for the treatment regardless of the situation, so I grabbed some money and rushed to the hospital. Upon arriving at the hospital, I learned that my son's head had been hit by a shot put and that he was now in surgery.
I was very nervous. A shot put is very heavy! My tears kept flowing. The principal, the physical education teacher and the homeroom teacher were all in the hospital and did not dare to go home. There was another child, about 15 or 16 years old, standing in front of the operating room. He was shivering. I inquired who he was and learned that he had thrown the shot put and struck my son's head.
With tears, I recalled a sentence from Zhuan Falun,
“We have said that good or evil comes from a person’s spontaneous thought, and the thought at that moment can bring about different consequences.”
I said to the principal and the teachers: “You had a good intention to give extra coaching to students. You did not do anything wrong.” I also said to the child: “There is no quarrel between you and my son. You did not intend to hit him.” I told everyone that I did not blame them and that I had money for the treatment. Then I asked everyone to leave. When I said that, all of them were dumbstruck. None of them left. They waited there until my son was carried out from the operating room.
After the operation, my son's head was covered with bandages and his clothes were bloody. The doctor asked me to pay the fee for the CT examination. When the CT result came out, the doctor looked at the film and kept shaking his head, making us think that my son's situation might be very serious. However, the doctor said: “This is so weird! This patient's brain did not bleed after his head was hit by a shot put. How is this possible?” The doctor then said that my son might be hospitalized for some time, because although his brain had not bled at the time of injury, it could very well start bleeding later and create a very dangerous situation. However, I firmly believed that my son would be fine.
Remembering Master's words “good or evil comes from a person’s spontaneous thought,” I took my son home.
After we got home, I cleaned the blood on my son's body. My son was 14 years old at the time. I was worried he would touch the bandage on his head while sleeping, so I had him sleep on my bed while I sat at his side and watched him. At midnight, my son suddenly sat up and said, “Mom, you pushed me.” I said that I had not. My son said, “No. Someone clearly pushed me. There was a male voice asking me to put my head toward this side.” I then realized that it was compassionate Master who was helping my son. Tears ran over my face. I did not know how to thank Master with words.
My son's wound healed in just seven days. He returned to school, even though everyone had thought that he might never go back to school. The school had not even finished the insurance report when my son came back.
The most amazing thing is that my son is no longer mentally retarded. After the accident, he became bright and rational. He then also started to practice Falun Dafa. My entire family is benefiting a lot from practicing Falun Dafa.
