In class, we read a parable that was at the beginning of the first section of the book. I believe that the parable is very connected to all of the stories in one general way. The connection is the fact that all of the mothers want to share a very important piece of information with them. This may be a seemingly unimportant symbol, such as a feather, or it could b life-changing advice, which all of the mothers have. All of the mothers have been through traumatic experiences in China that taught them a lot about life. These experiences even shaped their views of how life is. The mothers want to share the advice with their daughters so that they can be aware of how life can be and how they should react would life becomes very hard.
I believe this a very important connection that in not only seen in the first section, but throughout the entire story. What do you think?
