How many time do you stay at home with your parents? I usually have a lot of classes out side of school like baseball, so I only have time at night to talk with them. Think, what if you were in a world that the farmer was in, and your elders might announced to get killed in any time. What would you do or think about shining?. It talks about that, in a place called shining, there was a cruel law that had made by the governor which is also a warrior he believes that, strong people are more useful than young and old people, so he decided to kill all aged (old) people. Because he thinks they are useless. And this farmer tries to protect her mom, and brings her to the mountains so she wouldn’t get killed. At last the farmer tries to convince the governor to abolish the law, by telling her a story of how he struggle on something and fixed it. So on in the future of shining there were never this law. The love between them flow far and deep leaving memories to keep.
In the story “The Aged Mother” , by Matsuo Basho, the author believes family love can often help overcome difficult circumstances .The aged mother was encouraging and telling the boy that as log as we are together we will help each other and get over it. “Let not thine eyes be blinded, my son.” She said. “The mountain road is full of dangers. LOOK carefully and follow the path which holds the piles of twigs. They will guide you to the familiar path farther down”. The son’s surprised eyes looked back over the path, then at the poor old, shriveled hands all scratched and soiled by their work of love (Basho #2). This supports my theme statement by showing the love between the mother and the son. It shows how they help each other and telling each other that it will all be over. also show the family love between them. And this love between the mother and the son helps them to overcome difficulties .As it goes to the end of the story, the farmer decided stand out and help Shining Finally he lifted his head. “Shining needs more than strength of youth,” he said gravely. “Ah, that I should have forgotten the well-known saying, “with the crown of snow, there cometh wisdom!” That very hour the cruel law was abolished, and custom drifted into as far a past that only legends remain (Basho #2).In the last moment the farmer and his aged mother had convinced the governor to abolish the cruel law, by telling the governor a story of his, that they overcame hard chips. At last the love between them had went further, and the it had changed shining, made it even better. So at last we know family love can often help overcome difficult circumstances.
