The essay is longer than the usual stuff online these days, but it is oh-so-worth it to read in its entirety.  The author exquisitely combines themes and life lessons from a Hollywood blockbuster movie, childhood experiences, literature, religious studies, history, and present-day parenting.  She weaves a narrative that blurs meanings (in a good way).  The piece is real in multiple senses of the word.
