My Sister's Keeper

Another great movie night.
Anna's parents brought her to this world to save her sister, Kate. She donated everything that her sister needed - umbilical cord blood, bone marrow, and the next thing on the wish list - her kidney. She was never asked for her permission before doctors take all these from her. Then she decided to sue her parents in order for medical emancipation - which turns out to be a request by Kate, as she believed that even with the kidney transplant, she would not survive.
I guess the parents were just too occupied by the thought of saving Kate who's dying, and didn't realize that Anna is just as important and precious to them.

(Guess that's just how we are? Paying attention to things that we may lose or don't have, and ignore beautiful things that we already own?)

And today was a working public holiday (how does that work?).
