Last words from a mother to her son

There’s one thing I’m quite proud of, and I keep telling this to everyone. That, no movie has yet made me cry, but one particular anime always makes me cry at certain moments. It’s Naruto. But still if you watch the same thing again and again, you’ll get used to, and you’ll not cry later on. But this particular moment made me cry even today when I watched it again for 5th or 6th time. I think it should be relayed to everyone, and everyone should read this. 

Prologue. A gigantic demon have attacked a village. The father of Naruto (the main character) is the leader of the village then. Eventually, the day of attack was the day when Naruto was born. Father Minato, and mother Kushina decides to save the village by sealing the monster inside their newborn. But in exchange of their lives. Both have blood running through their mouth, and probably don’t have much time on earth. So, mother Kushina tells her last words to their new born baby…

     “Naruto..

Don’t be picky.. Eat lots and grow strong..
Make sure that you bathe every day and stay warm.. 
Also.. Don’t stay up late.. You need lots of sleep..
And make friends.. You don’t need a lot of friends..
Just a few.. Ones you can really, really trust..
I wasn’t very good at it, but keep up with your studies and practice your ninjutsu hard.. 
Remember that everyone has strengths and weaknesses..
So don’t get too depressed if you can’t do something well..
Respect your teachers and upperclassmen at the Academy..
Oh, and this is important.. It’s about the Three Prohibitions for a shinobi..

Be extra careful about lending and borrowing money..
Put your mission wages into your savings account..
No alcohol until you’re twenty.. Too much can ruin your health, so drink in moderation..
Another Prohibition is women.. 
I’m a woman, so I don’t know too much about this but..
All you need to remember is that this world is made up of men and women.. 
So it’s only natural to take an interest in girls.. 
But just don’t get hooked on bad women.. Find someone just like me.. 
Speaking of the Three Prohibitions, be wary of Jiraiya Sensei, you know..
Naruto, from now on, you’re going to face lots of pain and hardship..
Be true to yourself.. Have a dream and have the confidence to make that dream come true.. 
There’s so much.. Oh, so much more that I want to pass on to you.. I wish I could stay with you longer..
I love you”
