I don't know about you guys, but this movie brought tears to my eyes cause it made me see just how blessed we are to be able to do all the things we can do every day, she never made it to a fully grown woman, yet she taught us so many things. I really recommend it to everyone. It's a big reality check. It doesn't matter where you come from, because you will face the same problem wherever you go, sickness and eventually death, but the difference is how you want to face it. She was really brave and taught us how to fight and how to be united. She shared her love and even left a legacy behind. How many of us can say that if they left this planet right this instant they could leave something like that behind... and the legacy I am talking about is a book. A book never perishes, because it is filled with our memories, our thoughts and it can be read throughout generations and it can affect many people, like that man in prison for example.
