内容提要:A little boy invited his mother to attend his elementary school's first teacher-parent meeting. 

  A little boy invited his mother to attend his elementary school's first teacher-parent meeting. The little boy was very unhappy when his mother said she would go. This would be the first time that his classmates and teacher met his mother and he was embarrassed by her appearance.(外表) Although she was a beautiful woman, there was a serious scar(伤疤) that covered nearly the whole right side of her face. The boy never wanted to talk about why or how she got the scar.

  At the meeting, people were impressed by the kindness and natural beauty of his mother despite(尽管) the scar, but the little boy was still embarrassed and hid himself from everyone. He did, however, he could hear the conversation between his mother and his teacher.

  “How did you get the scar on your face?” the teacher asked.

  The mother replied, “When my son was a baby, he was in a room that suddenly caught fire. Everyone was too afraid to go in because the fire was out of control, so I went in. As I was running towards his bed, I saw a beam(梁) coming down and I placed myself over him trying to protect him. I was knocked down but luckily, a fireman came in and saved both of us.” She touched the burned side of her face. “This scar will be permanent(永久的), but to this day, I have never regretted(遗憾;惋惜) doing what I did.”

  At this point, the little boy came out running towards his mother with tears in his eyes. He hugged her and held her hand tightly for the rest of the day.
