Cartoons teach life lessons
By Karen Lee Ka-ki, Carmel Secondary School
Lots of people stop watching cartoons as they get older. But I still enjoy it. Cartoons are full of positive ideas and revolve around love and friendship. For example, the Disney movie Up is about a man who promised his late wife to move their house to the top of a waterfall. He eventually achieves this “impossible” dream with his faith and the help of a little boy.
In the world of cartoons, heroes and villains are clearly defined. On the other hand, it is hard to judge good and bad people in society.
There’s no doubt that cartoons are a result of somebody’s imagination – they don’t happen in real life. But these creations can remind us to get back to basics. When we were children, we loved and respected our parents and treated others well. But why do we become disobedient as we grow older? We can rediscover our principles from cartoons.
Cartoons are simple and interesting, and can teach us a lot about life. Let’s learn a lesson from those stories and build a wonderful and peaceful world together.
