I used to like stories with a happy ending, especially love stories;and I guess many people, especially kids and yong people like stories with a happy ending.

About two years ago I watched a movie called Training Day with my friends. When it was over, I thought to myself,'Is there any such happy ending in real life? Yes, there is, but sometimes(maybe often) in real life bad guys like the corrupt cop in the movie would win and take the money and those who were bullied would be in frustrated and disappointing.

I had the same thought after I watched the movie again this winter break. But I was still glad with the ending, which was encouraging.

After I read the novel 'The Lord of Flies', I felt relaxed when I read that a captain appeared so that the boy who was being chased could be safe. But later I thought to myself, 'What if the Capitain didn't appear?'
After I read Wuthering Heights(a great novel), I felt comfortable with the happy ending. But after a while I thought to myself, 'what if it had an unhappy ending?'

I am not pessimistic. Actually I was encouraged and I felt comfortable when I finished the movie and the stories above. The movie and the novels with the happy endings(and they are good endings), to some extent,encourage people and let people see the lights of hope.

I asked myself 'what if...' just because I thought there were many possibilities in life and you never know whether you would have a happy ending with your own story.

You wrote a very interesting blog. I'm impressed. Happy endings are normal in films and in books, of course, otherwise people might not read them. In Hollywood they don't show criminals getting away with the money because that would be BAD! And not a happy ending either. 

Are there happy endings in life? What about all of those parents who lost children and children who lost parents in the earthquake last year? I don't think there were too many happy endings there. The sad part of that is that we just move on with life. There was only news stories about it while it was happening. Now those people are left without loved ones and without the help that news stories can bring. Are they still living in tents? Are the children being cared for? So many things in life don't have happy endings.

Excellent blog!
