August 17 Segment Discusses Recurring Themes of Death and Loss in Disney Films such as The Lion King

Cleveland, Ohio (Aug 17, 2023) - Cornerstone of Hope Education Director Julia Ellifritt was featured on Catholic Cemeteries Association's CCAirwaves podcast, "Disney and Grief - The Lion King" to discuss the recurring themes of death and loss found in many Disney films and how it can impact children's views on grief and loss.

In the podcast, the question is raised whether it is a good thing that children are being exposed to these movies that have themes of death and grief so early on in their lives?

"I think it's always good that kids understand loss, because we're raising this generation of adults that don't want to believe the losses that were going to happen to them, that they can just be what they want and do what they want." Julia explains.
