On the night of April 14, 1912, a horrific accident happened. The "unsinkable" style ship named Titanic crashed into a giant iceberg. The result of the collision is the numbers and pain that people never want to repeat.




1,514 people were killed in the horrifying shipwreck that year. The pain has closed for over 100 years. Today, what people save about the keyword "Titanic" could be: the most serious shipwreck, maritime disaster of all time or the romance of Jack and Rose. It is also possible that the immortal love song "My heart will go on" through Celine Dion's soaring voice ...

However, almost all do not realize, behind the dark curtain of pain and loss is a great masterpiece of Altruism.


Charles Lightoller, then 38 years old, 2nd Vice Admiral on the Titanic, he was the last person to be towed on a lifeboat, also the survivor of the highest position on the boat at that time.

Returning from the dead, after many years of secrecy and silence, Charles finally decided to write 17 pages of recollections, detailing the horrific accident he witnessed. His every word has never been so vivid and so intense. "As long as I live, I will never forget that night's spectacle!"

"Women and children first!"

When the order was heard, many people left the lifeboat, they quietly walked behind behind a cigarette and smoked. Charles did not see any women or children who intended to leave their dear men. Everyone seems to be very calm ... before death ... whether it's a famous trader or a servant.

When the first lifeboat was brought to the water, Charles asked a Straw woman, who was on the deck, saying, "Do you want me to take you to a lifeboat?"

The woman shook her head: "No, I think it's better to stay on the train." Her husband asked, "Why don't you want to go to the lifeboat?" The woman smiled and replied, "No, I still want to be with you." Since then, Charles never saw this couple again ...

Astor Fourth (John Jacob Astor IV), a famous businessman, inventor, writer and one of the richest people in the world at that time. After taking the 5-month-old pregnant wife onto a lifeboat, a hand leads the dog, the other hand lights a cigar and yells at the rescue boat that is drifting away from the distance: "I love you and your mother and daughter" .

Captain I ordered Astor to go to the boat, but he firmly replied, "I like the most basic way of speaking (protecting weak factions)!" After that, he gave up his place to a woman in class 3.

A few days later, when dawn rose above the Atlantic Ocean, the rescue team found his body in a head with a serious injury from hitting the chimney. His fortune was enough to build 10 Titanic ships, but the fourth Astor refused all. He chose death to protect his loved ones, protect "women and children" and protect his personality.

Ben Guggenheim, a billionaire, a famous figure in the banking industry. In the most dangerous moment, when everyone is hustling and rushing, he casually changes a luxurious evening gown and declares: "I have to die seriously, like a gentleman."

In the message he sent to his wife, "On this ship, there aren't any women because he took the place on the lifeboat that was left on the deck. You will not die like a bastard, you will be like a true man. ”

A sailor suggested to Strauss, the founder of the US Macy's department store, who is also the second richest man in the world: "I guarantee no one will oppose an old man like you going on a rescue boat" . Strauss said: "I will not go when other men are staying." When he tried to persuade his wife Rosalie to board a lifeboat, she still refused. She said, "How many years have you gone, I followed you there, I will go with you wherever you want to go."

After that, he took the arm of Mrs. Rosalie, leisurely walked to the chair on the deck, sat down and waited for the last moment of his life. Today, in the New York City Bronx, people built a monument to commemorate Mr. Strauss and his wife, which engraved the words: "Love cannot sink even more sea water".

A French businessman named Nahuatl took his two sons to the rescue boat, asked some women to take care of them, and I refused to board the boat. After the two sons were rescued, newspapers all over the world frantically posted pictures of these two children, until their mother from them recognized them.

In a critical moment, Lydepas hugged the newly married husband, not wanting to escape death alone. Because of her reluctance, Lydepas' husband had to punch her faint, when she regained consciousness, she found herself on a rescue boat floating in the sea. Later, Lydepas did not rebuild his life for the rest of his life, living alone to remember his dead husband.

In the meeting of the lucky survivors in Lausanne in Switzerland, Smith recounted:
"At that time my two children were carried to the rescue boat. Because I was too overloaded, I could not get on the boat anymore, a woman sitting on the rescue boat got up and left the seat. Then, she pushed me up and yelled at me with a sentence: "Sit down, the children can't be without their mother". "
She regretted that she did not ask for that woman's name at the time.

The deaths in the accident also included billionaire Acid, the famous Stead journalist, Major Artillery Major Bart, the famous Robble engineer, etc. They gave their place on the lifeboat, to the peasant women. Not a copper on you.

More than 50 senior employees on the Titanic, in addition to the second deputy Charles Lightoller, commander of the rescue survived. They all wholeheartedly saved others until they died in their responsibility.

At around 2:00 am, telegraph staff No. 1 John Philip received the captain's order to abandon the ship, everyone saved himself. But he still sat in the notice room, still holding the posture of sending SOS signals continuously until the last minute.

When the stern began to sink into the water, Charles heard at the last moment, the moment of death, the words of love resounded: "I love you! I love you! ”

In the dark night of suffering and separation, the noble spirit emerged as a shining torch, portraying a great masterpiece of human character and morality. Lifestyle education is not just a theory; but in real circumstances, moral lessons deep into the mind become the guideline for each person's actions.

Women and children, weak people need to be respected and prioritized. The gentleman is not only a man who speaks beautiful and kind words on a table; but even in the face of the fact that even though tomorrow all become meaningless, today's moral and personality lesson still needs to be practiced absolutely.

Human life is like a dream, no matter how rich or poor the person is, standing before samsara is just a tiny being. More importantly, then people really recognize the most important thing in life: Not material, not the right to not get back to themselves but to others, is altruistic.

Altruism contains an unrivaled power, turning the ill-fated people in a horrifying "sea storm" that year into the great symbol of great compassion.
