What fictional character inspires you?
The Secret World of Arrietty is a movie that never fails to cheer me up whenever I’m feeling down. And one of the reasons why is the character of Shawn.
Shawn risks his life in order to save another’s.
Risks incurring the displeasure of his nurse and aunt, the only “beans” in this life, in order to do the right thing.*
Must face the possibility of dying.
Wants what every person wants — to be loved.
I’d like to think that if Shawn can make it through everything he goes through, than I can make it through whatever I’m going through, too.
*Humans are called “beans” — i.e., “human beans” — by Arrietty’s kind, Borrowers — who are known as “the little people.”
