Three major lessons about family from Finding Dory

Have you watched furious “Warcraft” yet? If you don’t like the warring style, check out this family cartoon like Finding Dory. Once again, I enjoyed the movie voucher from Major Cineplex by Cellcard, with Rain and Kaly, especially for her belated birthday gift. Despite its common theme, the sequel still conveys new meanings to us.

Unconditional Love – It’s one thing to be parents. It’s another to raise a forgetful kid like Dory. You may find it tiresome just to keep her remembering everything she says and has done. But only unconditional love can make living with her more interesting, despite such fatigue to keep up with her. By the way, how do would you remember an act of unconditional love by your parents?!

Family by Experience – More often than not, “family” is defined by blood. Rarely does its definition find an experiential context. In the case of “Finding Dory”, she treats Nemo and Marlin as her family, after all they’ve gone through in the prequel. Oh yeah, it dated back some ten years ago and I hope you still remember the plot! Is there anyone in your life you’d consider part of your family, regardless of your genealogy?

Return to the Roots – I’ve grown up to believe that two essences in life identify a person: roots and experience. No matter what experience one lives, it’s equally important to recall their origin. There is a reason for us to be born that way. If you cannot find one, make one up! For Dory, her roots remain in her brain so much that these help lead her to her long-lost parents. What memories of your origin would be you proud of?
