BC: The theme of this story is that just because some one is your enemy doesn't mean they are bad people. In this story the biggest example was when Tu Reh decided not to kill chiko because he felt bad for him. even if someone is my enemy and i see something bad happen to them i sometimes feel bad for the person. When someone is hurt or down you should really help them the best you can.
