Alike other little girls, I grow up with Disney. The image of the soft Mickey toy which my parents bought me when I was three still vividly embeds in my membrane. Undeniably, Disney has a great impact on people born in the late 90s and the millennials in Vietnam. Additionally, Disney has a big influence on mass media, and mass media contributes in the development of children’s mindset; therefore, to an extent, Disney still has its dark sides that might leave negative effects on children. In my early years, Disney was my only media source.
Hester Prynne now starts to live a non-social life and works from home by illustrating her broidery talent into works and clothing that she can sell. Her life suddenly turns to be lonely and almost completely miserable. Nevertheless, that all begins to change with the birth of her daughter. Hester’s gem is in the body of the tiny, little infant: “But she named the daughter ‘Pearl’, as being of great price—purchased with all she had—her mother’s only treasure!” (Hawthorne 41). The sad woman, Hester, commences to watch her delightful child grow each day; and each day she grows more beautiful, more intelligent than the last (Hawthorne 41).

Unhappy kid.” His affection for her is visible to those around him; Miranda herself observes that she “saw how much he missed his own child, his distant son”. She’s his child on-stage too, not just playing Lear’s daughter, but a hallucination of the childhood version of his daughter. The overall portrayal of Kirsten before the plague is as a small girl, a little overcome by the glamour of the stage, seeking comfort with her father figure Arthur.
The toxicity of the relationship isn’t apparent at first, but once it creeps up, it’s hard to ignore. When Tosh exclaims that he was tired of being married, Maya was shocked that it came out of nowhere, but after a year of being divorced she says, “[she] was a saner, healthier person than the young, greedy girl who wanted a man to belong to and a life based on a Hollywood film, circa 1940”

I have heard several stories of my parents’ relatives, close friends or associates who lost their lives in accidents to illness. These stories could have had different, happier endings, I often concluded. I know of an eleven-year-old girl diagnosed with Alopecia Areata, laughing uncontrollably after watching her doctor make funny faces. For a moment, not only did this little girl forget that she was losing hair, but her smile expressed joy and the beauty of being alive. At this point I thought that a doctor would not only work on treating the physical condition of the patient but would have a big role in bringing joy in spite of their hopeless condition.
