That Time Peter Pan Failed Me

"You remember how in the second act Tinkerbell drinks some poison that Peter is about to drink in order to save him? And then Peter turns to the audience and he says that "Tinkerbell is going to die because not enough people believe in fairies. But if all of you clap your hands real hard to show that you do believe in fairies, maybe she won't die." So, we all started to clap. I clapped so long and so hard that my palms hurt and they even started to bleed, I clapped so hard. Then the actor playing Peter Pan turned to the audience and said "That wasn't enough. You did not clap hard enough. Tinkerbell is dead." And then we all started to cry. And even more damagingly, I think it's warped my total sense of life. I mean nothing seems worth trying if Tinkerbell is just going to die."
