~PART ONE~The girls I respect link
~PART THREE~The girls I will be in life link
Part Two continues the list. These are the girls I love. There are things about them that I respect much like I did with the last set of girls from my Part One article, but they stand out meer to me because I would want to meet these girls. Like the last article, I used pictures to represent what I like best about each Princess.
I am Merida!
~A DECLARATION OF WHO u ARE~
I've only seen Brave once but from what I remember of her, I absolutely love her. Like Jasmine, she also didn't want to be forced into marriage especially if she knew it was going to be a loveless marriage. Also like Jasmine, she wasn't afraid to stand up for herself, even if that meant going against her mother. One of my favoriete DP scenes is when she takes off her hoodie, stands before the crowd and says it loud for everyone to hear, "I AM MERIDA!" I get chills when I hear that. Declare who u are. Be who u want to be and declare it to yourself, to the world. Everything that I love about Merida can be summed up in that one statement. It's why I love Merida so much. I just want to say that one of God's name is "I am" and when I heard Merida say who she was, that's what it made me think of. God is "I am" because He declares it so. "I am that I am." For me, Merida represents how important it is to not only know who u are, but to declare who u are. u can be anyone u want to be. I know the world is going to attack u for who u are because they are judgmental, racist, sexist, homophobic, and just plain ignorant. Whatever they call u and whoever they say u are, take off your hoodie, stand before them and declare who u are. "I am Sarah"
I'm almost there.
~A DECLARATION OF WHAT u WANT~
Live your dream! Tiana had two jobs because she not only knew where she wanted to be, but she knew she was going to get there. She knew she was almost there. Despite struggling through a family death. she kept on her path. The straight and narrow is a hard path to follow, but Tiana did it. Her best scenes are her scenes with Charlotte. Tiana's vrienden came in to the diner to invite her out with them and when she refuses so she can work, they immediately put her down basically. But when charlotte is around, she supports her and loves her and encourages her. This goes to prove that u don't need vrienden in your life that are going to make u feel bad if you'd rather chase your dream than a night out on the town. Don't just declare who u are. Declare what u want in your life and don't let anyone tell you, u can't have it. Even as a frog, she still held strong to her dream. u can too. Hop to it.
This is the path I choose.
~A DECLARATION OF WHAT u NEED~
She makes me want to jump off a cliff. For that scene alone, I know why John Smith fell in love with her. She went to the danger and thrill. Cliff diving. She went to the danger for fun and excitement but she went to the danger of death when it was needed for the man she loved, the father she loved, the tribe she loved. People say she lacked personality, especially after she met John Smith, but that's just not true. Personality doesn't mean having fun all the time. There's a time for fun and a time for seriousness. She had fun cliff diving, she had fun in the river, she had fun with Meeko and Flit, but when the time came for it, she was serious because the truth of the matter is she was fighting a war of prejudice that would have killed hundreds of each tribe, if not more. Pocahontas is the one who always trusts her gut instinct. She was advised to marry Kocoum but she trusted there was something greater out there. Had she married Kocoum, there would have been no voice of reason in their war and no one to stop it. She didn't run to John's side just to protect him. It was an act of courage to protect them all. When the time came for her to make a choice, she took a moment to see what was there. She stayed because she knew the war was not over. It's shown in the sequel. When people are faced with something new, that they don't know, they fear it. They want to destroy it to rid themselves of their fear. She is brave. She is wise. She is strong to choose what she needs over what she wants. Had she gone with John, the war would have continued. She did the right thing and I give her praise for that.
When will my reflection toon who I am inside?
~A DECLARATION OF OVERCOMING~
Mulan is the ster of another one of my favoriete DP scenes. The moment she saw her father blow out the fire, was the moment she turned her brand on. The music. That score. It's strong and powerful just like Mulan is. What I've realized while writing this lijst is that so many of the princesses faced a chance of death at one point of another. Though she didn't toon it too much, Mulan was overcome with intense anxiety. The volgende worse thing to someone u love dying is the thought and fear of their death. Mulan saw her father stumble with his sword and so she took it from him because the moment she saw that, she saw his death that may have very well been inevitable had he gone to war. I admire her for first trying to talk to her father about not going. In their time and place, he would have been seen as a dishonorable coward had he stayed home. He really was between a rock and a hard place. Mulan was the barrier between them so her father wouldn't have to face them. I may have a ranking of each princess and where they personally stand with me, but what I love about each one. What really shines about each one is that they all love perfectly. Whether it be their friends, their family, their prince, themselves, the greater good, they each represent a love that is inspired. Mulan went to war but she overcame her own war door fighting everything against her.
