Who cares about a world on dust?

Recently I often wonder, do you really care about others? your classmate? your colleague? Your friend? Even passers-by? Who cares about a dusty world? An elephant named Horton took care of it, and tried every means to find a place to live for that world.

I watched "Horton Hears a Who" at night. Horton was a happy elephant in the woods, plump, enthusiastic, rapturous, funny, and always liked to tell his crooked stories to children. When an unexpected voice was heard from a dust drifting with the wind, the imaginative elephant believed that there was a world above. He saved the dust. In order not to let the dust drift around, find a safe place for it.

I like the nameless town in the dust. There were happy crowds, cartoon houses, and the 96 daughters of the mayor. In order to communicate with each daughter, a stopwatch must be held. Has elements of an imagined world.

And where Holden lives, the jungle, is a school of realism. The big villain Mrs Kangaroo, the insidious and easy to incite monkey, the vicious vulture... All of them adhere to the idea of ​​"if you can't see it, it doesn't exist", mocking and attacking Horton and his small world. You can't allow others to believe what you don't believe. At the end of the film, the kangaroo is entangled with the mob, while preparing the cage and the oil pan, while smiling and saying: "As long as you say that there is no world on the dust, you can still live the life before." How similar is this to Bruno? .

Fortunately, Holden will never give up. When he shouts "a person is a person, no matter how small it is", when the nameless town in the dust shouts "i'here", who can not bear it? .

What impressed me most was Horton's desperate eyes when the vulture threw the dusty alfalfa flower into the boundless alfalfa sea. In the days that followed, he searched desperately in the sea of ​​alfalfa flowers, asking "is it you" every time he picked one, and finally let him find that one, the feeling of relief was like a sigh.

Our world is a boring and too rushed world. Who cares about anything but yourself? Who can hear the call from the dust? Perhaps, we ourselves live in a dust?
