In the depths of Russia, there was a mother bear with her young trying to paddle across a freezing cold lake with her young bear cubs.
Despite early optimism on the part of the mother bear, she was soon faced with the reality of how difficult it would be to cross the lake as, naturally, she was a stronger swimmer than her two baby cubs. What she did next goes against all our basic beliefs about parental instinct. This Is The Heartbreaking tale
We are told that love has no bounds and that it can take many forms, indeed there is no stronger bond than the love between a mother and her babies. Yet, the story of the mother bear and her cubs will go against all that we believe when it comes to the love between a mother and her child.
Sometimes we are surprised by the behaviors of those looking out for themselves, and then again sometimes we can be surprised by the behaviors of those who go above and beyond for others. Those are the circumstances where real love has no bounds.
