    Mom Saves 5 Children from Fire

    Mom recovering after rescuing children from fire

    POSTED: 4:34 a.m. EST, November 19, 2006


    NEW YORK (AP) -- A woman was recovering Saturday from skin graft surgery for burns she suffered when she rescued her 4-week-old twin sons and two other children from a fire in their apartment, then went back to save a fifth child.
    Firefighters found Nabila Nazli unconscious from smoke inhalation but still cradling 5-year-old daughter Nimrah to protect her from the flames.

    Now why cant we have more stories like this one?? What a wonderful mother. But mostly what you hear is another mother has hurt or killed her child.

    It is heartening, because I believe that the vast majority of mothers are like this one. The bad stuff sells BECAUSE it is so aberrant and strange to most of us.

    I loved what her son said about "she was just a dull mother, concerned with nutrition and boring stuff like that, and then all of a sudden she saves our lives." That made me smile so big!

    The reason they don't print stories like this so often, is because this is what a Mom is SUPPOSED to do.
    FUN... is a renewable resource!
