“ET phone home.” “Be good.” “I will be right here.” “Thank you.” Those are some of the words in the heartfelt movie ET that I saw as an 8-year-old kid and then again today for the movie’s 40th anniversary. This loving alien experiences the love and kindness of the humans around it and, with their help, is reunited with its family in outer space. The movie, in its 40 years, is a lifetime reminder to us that love and happiness on Planet Earth exist, people can live happily with each other, they should thank one another and families and will reunite with their loved ones, but we all need to “be good.”
