Another of my favorite Disney quotes, which I didn't think to include in the original message, is this one:
"Life is composed of lights and shadows, and we would be untruthful, insincere and saccharine if we tried to pretend there were no shadows.
Most things are good, and they are the strongest things, but there are evil things, too, and you could do a child no favor by trying to shield it from reality.
The important thing is to teach a child that good can always triumph over evil."
Those words of his are still true to this day. They're something I thought about when telling my young son about the events of September 11th in a way that he would be able to understand, not be overwhelmed by, but still learn from.
