[ IF YOU HAVEN’T WATCHED THIS YOU SHOULD WATCH IT IMMEDIATELY. ]
Graves Of The Fireflies (Hotaru no Haka) is truly the saddest movie I have ever seen. It’s the type of movie that would make you feel glad about your life living right now. This movie is about a brother and his younger sister trying to survive during World War II in Japan. It is not fun and games when you’re between the war nor if you’re a soldier. Also, people’s optimism would crumble since their selfish side would come out, sort of like the Hunger Games.
Even though I didn’t grow up with a dad, I know how it’s like for parents to go through all their hardship for us. Even when we talk back to them, they pour their heart and soul to continue what they always have done to us. They take care of us, risk their lives for us— most importantly trying to make us happy.There are different types of parents in the world… but their only goal/mission is to make us feel comfortable and to be the most successful in life.
What if we grow up and don’t know how to take care of ourselves? It’s scary to think that someday I will have a job, take care of all my expenses, and maybe start a family. I can already see that my parents are getting older and more stressful, some day I’ll have to take care of them. I also have to deal with people who may be good or bad and making choices that may impact my life hard or completely ruin it. It’s really scary, life is scary.
