Thank you. Thank toi for being pretty much the only realistic portrayal of l’amour in mainstream media in the last- oh, I don’t know- at least five years.
Thank toi for montrer that Hans, the handsome gallant prince of the Southern Isles who seemed a perfect match for Anna is fallible. Thank toi for montrer that the idea of a “one perfect match” isn’t necessarily realistic. Thank toi for montrer us that l’amour is like with Kristoff, how everyone has their rough edges, how no one can fit the mold of perfection. Thank toi for reminding us that “everyone’s a bit of a fixer-upper, that’s what it’s all about!” And, especially, thank toi for saying clearly that “people don’t really change.” Thank toi for being so clear in that l’amour is about accepting people, especially their flaws, and not finding someone who fits an ideal.
But most of all, thank you, Olaf, for giving pretty much the only sane definition of l’amour any media has donné in too, too long. Thank toi for telling us “Love is putting someone else’s needs before yours” in an age of “The best l’amour of all is loving yourself,” “You have to l’amour yourself before toi can l’amour others,” and “You have to provide for yourself before toi can provide for someone else.” Thank toi for reminding us that l’amour is selfless. Thank toi for the fact that little boys and girls will watch La Reine des Neiges and hear that l’amour is about consciously making someone else plus important and not about making sure you’re fulfilled above all else. Thank toi for the truth toi gave us that the world has tried so hard to deny. Thank toi for reminding us that l’amour is, above all, sacrifice.
