Quotes

Baseball Coach: Did you know that India was still ruled by England until after World War Two?
Scott Carpenter: No, Coach, I didn't know that.
Baseball Coach: They tried to win their independence through violence over the years, but they never quite succeeded. Don't swing too early, wait for the ball. Finally a man by the name of Mahatma Gandhi convinced the people that they could win their independence without using violence. A lot of people thought he was crazy, but it turned out he was right. When somebody asked him why he was so sure that ...

Unconditional Love
27 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie with my 8 year old nephew. It would not win any Oscars, but the "heart" of this movie is what makes it great. We live in a rather small town and we do have a gang problem. I know because I used to teach these gang members. I wanted to talk to my nephew about gangs, but mostly to remind him of God's love for us. How he loves us "No Matter What". Just like a good parent, He will discipline us when we need it to correct us, but He will never stop loving us. We should follow this example with one another. It is true that the world will never "perfect", but that is no reason for us to stop trying to improve our relationships with one another, and in turn improve our world. I also believe it shows that just one person can make a difference. Jesus began it by showing us how to treat one another. Scott showed God's love to Pete. (It reminded of David and Jonathan from the Bible). Then Pete showed it to others and so on. It isn't just a "dream" as some cynic's would have us believe. If you look past the amateur acting, etc. and look at the heart of the movie, I believe you will be pleasantly surprised, and just may learn something of our Heavenly Father yourself. After all, that is what He does for us. :-)
