I admit to being caught up in an ever growing world of materialism, superficial desires and selfish wants. But watching series such as this one makes me realize that hey, my life isn’t so bad. So what if I can’t afford that BMW? So what if I have a fight with my best friend? So what is I don’t make it into the college that I want? I can always have a second chance. I can always strive to make my world better because I have my health, which is a treasure beyond price. For someone like Aya, she will never get the chance to go to college, fall in love, save up for a BMW or grow old. She will never get married or have children. She will never get to live her life beyond her short 15 years because of what her disease has robbed her. This series brings home the realization that human life is all too short and that if given the chance, we should live our live to its fullest. This was Aya Kito’s legacy whens she passed away at the age of 25 in 1984. She left behind a diary which she diligently wrote in even when her writing was too shaky to be comprehensable. I believe Aya had come to terms with the inevitable because of his gentle nature, the love of her family, the experiences she had with her friends, and her belief in herself. Regardless of how much she suffered and how much she lost, Aya was continously grateful to her loved ones. She lived her life with dignity and grace until the very end.
I’m so glad to have found a thought-provoking series like “1 Litre of Tears.” It breaks my heart to know that this series is based on a true story. Yet, I feel so grateful to get to know Aya and her family and to appreciate the lessons that she taught me. More than anything, Aya taught me the use of two words - love and hope. That was her legacy. Aya embodied all the best that a human being can hope to be. To continue life in the face of such adversity and to contribute joy to everyone whose lives she has touched is a miracle — and that makes Aya a miracle.
“No relationship is perfect, ever. There are always some ways you have to bend, to compromise, to give something up in order to gain something greater…The love we have for each other is bigger than these small differences. And that’s the key. It’s like a big pie chart, and the love in a relationship has to be the biggest piece. Love can make up for a lot.”—Sarah Dessen (via cassandrananlal, kari-shma)
