The Vietnam War broke out. Followed the heart,
the young husband joined the military and
sacrificed his life leaving behind his wife and kids.

Life postwar was very hard, often with not enough food to eat. Still young and beautiful, the wife refused to remarry and dedicated her entire life to raise her kids with the best possible care and education.

An opportunity came, the first born son
immigrated to America, studied hard and became
a NASA Engineer having a good life.

The son sent home letters often, together with
much money for mom to spend, however,
Christmas after Christmas, New Year after New
Year, with the many excuses, the son stubbornly
refused to travel home to visit mom.

When the mother died, the son returned and
organized a big funeral but people did not see
him shredding tear.

Mother left behind a chest that she always placed
at the top of her bed. During the funeral, the son
opened the chest and suddenly bursted into tears, sobbed, embraced his mother’s coffin and
screamed hysterically, “Mom! Mom!”

Everyone looked at each other and looked at the
chest. It was full of $100 dollar bills and a piece
of paper.

In it read, “Son, I don’t spend too much money. I
miss you a lot. Every time I hear a motorcycle
passing by, I run out the door but it wasn’t my
son. I saved this money for you in case when you
get sick.”
