[Celebrating World Falun Dafa Day] My 82-Year-Old Mother Safe and Sound After Falling Down a Dozen Stairs
(Minghui.org) My mother, who was 82 years old in 2010, likes to go out every day to do some exercises with our company. One day in autumn 2010, she went home after finishing her exercises. My elder sister asked her to wait downstairs and not go upstairs, as she was stopping at the supermarket to buy some ice cream. But my mother insisted on going upstairs by herself. After going up about a dozen steps, she lifted her head to look at our neighbors, then lost her balance and fell to the bottom of the stairs, head first.
My elder sister took our mother to the hospital for a check-up. The doctor who took the X-ray said, “You should make a reservation at a restaurant to celebrate. She is perfectly fine.”
The doctor continued, “I've been a doctor for several decades, and have never seen a woman in her eighties fall from a two-meter height without any injury. It is an absolute miracle. If a young person, a child, or an athlete fell down like that, it would be impossible to not have an injury, let alone an 80-year-old. Your mother didn't even have a scratch on her. She must be a celestial being! Or perhaps a divine being is protecting your family.”
All of our family and relatives talked about it during supper time and said how dangerous the accident was, and how lucky our mother was. Just then our mother took out a Falun Dafa truth clarification talisman from around her neck with a smile on her face. Everyone was immediately silent and understood right away that Master had protected her.
My brothers and sisters hadn't wanted to listen to me when I clarified the facts about Falun Dafa to them. But having experienced this miracle, they admired the power of Dafa, and said that they knew Dafa was good, but due to fear they hadn't wanted to support me openly. They also expressed that they would learn Falun Dafa when the persecution stopped.
