*PROOF* of ignorant people
21 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This whole movie proves how ignorant both children and adults can be when faced with the knowledge of a helpless individual's incurable, unwanted disease. These children already were going through a living hell dealing with the disease itself. They didn't need rude and ignorant comments and attacks from uneducated, immature people.

Although some of the treatment that the family receives in this movie might seem a bit exaggerated, the writers show proof of how people with such diseases are treated.

Every single day people are treated in this way because of their handicap(s). God bless these poor children who have to deal with such a disease as well as their parents who have the guilt themselves of feeling like they caused it.

I give two thumbs up to the creators of this awesome movie which I have seen more than once. Maybe it will encourage others to look further into how they treat people who may not be quite as blessed as themselves.
